“Ahhh-mazing Burgers!”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

Local dive / bar that packed a punch! One of the best burgers I've ever had. Must try the Mushroom Burger (add Swiss Cheese!) or the Bull Fighter Burger. Homemade potato salad and an Abita (or two) are the perfect accompaniments.

“Five-star food in a two-star setting”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Right off Bourbon Street in the French Quarter resides some of the best food you will eat while in the Big Easy. Primarily a bar with a few booths available, this is definitely a spot to put on your must visit list. Sadly, kids can't go in so don't try. The gumbo and boiled crawfish will make your eyes roll back in your head. Gumbo only done on Friday and normally runs out by Sunday, so go before then for what is arguably the best gumbo you will eat. The burgers are extraordinary and the salads equal to any of the best restaurants in the New Orleans area. Other menu items are also well prepared and portions are substantial. If you like boiled crawfish find out when they are doing them as they are not a regular menu item. Like the gumbo, don't miss this special treat. Keep an eye on the waitresses as they might take the notion to surprise you. (You'll have to trust me on this...it's a fun place.) My sons love gumbo but aren't of age to go in a bar yet. Wish they would let them in since they do indeed serve restaurant quality food. Seriously, you might look at this place and walk on by....don't do that...go in. You'll go back again before you leave. Those of you who have read my reviews before will know that I never kid around about good food. Tip the waitresses more than you normally would....they are the hardest working ones and most pleasant ones you will encounter anywhere. And compliment the chef...he could easily be in one of the Brennan establishments. Glad he's not. Extremely good food here----of all sorts.

“Super burgers!”
Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

A little gem of a burger joint nestled in the heart of the quarter. The atmosphere is a little lacking with limited seating but the burgers live up to their promise of greasy goodness. Had the blue cheese burger and was not disappointed! This char-grilled delight could not be consumed fast enough. I got the baked potatoe as a side and would not recommend, primarily because it did not make for as good of a pairing as the Mac N'cheese. The service is lacking and we had to ask twice silverware...but of you want a tasty burger, this is the spot!

“Best burger, ever!”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Don't let the gritty atmosphere scare you away. Fantastic burgers! So good, we ate there twice on or short visit to NOLA. We will definitely be back!

“What a surprise!”
Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

Do not walk away after you see the bar. If you do you will be missing an incredible hamburger. We had to wait a while but it as so worth it. Shared a table with total strangers at the beginning but soon became drinking buddies. Great staff and again the food is incredible.
