This was by far the best burger we have had. It was cooked to perfection and the flavor of the bacon was not overwhelming and was a beautiful thick cut. My husband had the buffalo chicken salad and loved it! Great waitstaff. All wanted to go back!

We had to stop by because we heard so much about this place. The place was packed on a Tuesday night so they must've doing something right. To be honest, I was a bit disappointed. My wife's chicken was overcooked. My shrimp was also a bit overcooked. The food was good but I would not return since there are so many other great seafood spots in NOLA.

As advertised, the gumbo is the best we have tried in New Orleans. We decided to try three bowls of gumbo, fried oysters, and sea scallops. All were great, but we must say that the YaYa and seafood gumbo should be a requirement of any visit. While there is a casual atmosphere, the service is on a level of the more classic restaurants in the Quarter such as Arnaud's and Antoine's.

We tried this restaurant on our first evening in New Orleans as it was directly opposite our hotel in Royal Street. Excellent food and service, would definitely recommend. During our week's stay in NO we discovered why the city is not only famous for Jazz but also its food. To be fair, everywhere we ate was marvellous!

My wife and I visit New Orleans once a month and we always include Mr. B's as a must stop
for lunch, brunch (Sun) or dinner. Owned by a member of the Brennan family, you will most assuredly enjoy almost any offering on the menu. Pat is one of the many fine servers and although we have no complaints about any member of the staff, he is our favorite. I am a gumbo lover and Mr. B's has some of the best in the city.
