“Go go go go go”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

A trip to New Orleans is not complete without at least one visit to Yo-Mama's on St. Peter St. between Royal and Bourbon. This trip we went there three times. The gumbo may be the best in New Orleans and the burgers are out of this world. Have you ever had a peanut butter burger? Yeah, I know, sounds yukky.....not so, my friends...a new taste treat sensation awaits you when you wrap your lips around this bit of culinary perfection. A peanut butter burger!!!!! Don't miss this one, folks. The salads are very well done. The bar girls are wonderful. The drinks are nicely made, and the tequila selection large and good. But go for the food....it's the best kept culinary secret in New Orleans.

“"We Cheat Tourists and Drunks"”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

I'd like to preface this by saying that this is the only bad review I 've ever left on Trip Advisor or Yelp. Ok, so here goes:
A group of 8 of us went down to NOLA Halloween weekend 2012. We stopped by Yo-Mama's our last night there to grab a burger. Before paying our tab, we all got t-shirts that we paid for separately in cash. The older blonde charged us more for each shirt than what the sign said. Consequently, we didn't tip on our bill since she made a cool $30 bucks off of us Yankees, easily. They were rude the entire time besides giving poor service, although they always found time to light up behind the bar. Here's a tip: offer better service with some friendly hospitality instead of treating your customers like jerks. They need to re-staff, really. We won't go back unless we're desperate for a late-night snack.

The burgers were good. They are served with a baked potato. The bartender was friendly and attentive.

“Great Burgers”
Reviewed May 1, 2013 via mobile

We were in town for 5 days during Jazz Fest, and dined here twice. There's a small dining area located upstairs that was full both times, so we all sat at the bar to eat, which was no problem at all. The burgers were very good! Service was great both times.

“Just ok”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

The menu is limited in that it serves only burgers (or filet mignon). The bacon used on the burgers was very fatty. Burgers come with the option of baked potato or side salad only.
