R&O’S, Metairie, La. Report #31

    This place is only about two blocks from the New Orleans city line in an old part of Metairie called Bucktown.  Bucktown began as a string of hunting and fishing camps over 100 years ago.  Lake Pontchartrain is right across the street.  I wouldn’t call it an Italian place but there’s no shortage… Continue reading R&O’S, Metairie, La.

Louisiana Purchase Kitchen, Metairie, La. Report #30

I had a medical procedure today and as a result had to fast since Wednesday.  Therefore, I was seriously hungry.  As a result, I didn’t care about gourmet food for lunch.  I cared about a LOT of food.  Bad food.  Fried food.  Quantity over quality.  This place fits the bill.

This was the Metairie location.  They also have a couple locations in New Orleans. … Continue reading Sucre’, Metairie, La. Report #28

New Orleans Hamburger & Seafood Co., Harvey, La. Report #25

This place is a local chain with several locations around the New Orleans metro area.  They’ve been around since 1984 and are pretty good!  In spite of the name I find they don’t really have outstanding burgers.  If I want a good burger I’d head elsewhere.  But I had been in the mood for fried… Continue reading New Orleans Hamburger & Seafood Co., Harvey, La.
