RiverShack Gretna, Gretna, LA Report #260

If you ignore the construction going on in front, this is a nice looking place.  I’m not sure what they’re doing with the construction, but I saw a bunch of potted plants out there, so landscaping is in the near future.  It’ll probably be nicer looking then! This place is located right on the Mississippi… Continue reading RiverShack Gretna, Gretna, LA Report #260

The Blind Tiger, Covington, LA Report #252

We made our annual trip to a Christmas tree farm in Covington, LA., to cut down our own Christmas tree.  As we always do, we stopped at The Chimes for lunch, and were told there was a 45-50 minute wait for a table!  Being impatient and hungry, we decided to go elsewhere. Elsewhere presented itself… Continue reading The Blind Tiger, Covington, LA Report #252

Dry Dock Café, New Orleans, LA Report #243

The city of New Orleans spans both sides of the Mississippi River.  If there’s a street that would be considered our “Main Street”, it would be Canal Street, which runs from the river all the way to Lake Pontchartrain.  Canal St. also is the westside boundary of the French Quarter.  At the foot of Canal… Continue reading Dry Dock Café, New Orleans, LA Report #243

Metro Cafe Diner, Stone Mountain, GA Report #234

Ok, this should be my last out of town report on this road trip.  I’m heading back to New Orleans tomorrow.  I say “should be”, because no telling where I may stop and eat on the way home. We were staying at Stone Mountain Park and decided to leave the park for dinner.  This place… Continue reading Metro Cafe Diner, Stone Mountain, GA Report #234

Steak ‘n Shake, Mobile, AL Report #233

I’m taking a little road trip.  I don’t normally report on chains UNLESS they’re really special, or they have a great burger.  I love burgers.  And this place has great ones.  That explains why they’ve survived since 1934!  I just wish we had one of these back in New Orleans.  They say they’re in 28… Continue reading Steak ‘n Shake, Mobile, AL Report #233

Ugly Dog Saloon & BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #209

I came here for one thing and one thing only.  The Lafitte Pig sandwich.  I heard from a fellow foodie it was worth the trip.  Sliced ham, pulled pork and bacon, topped with coleslaw and cheddar cheese.  Sounded good to me. Nice sized place.  When I walked in I wasn’t sure if I should have… Continue reading Ugly Dog Saloon & BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #209

Ben’s Burgers, Metairie, LA Report #199

I was very sad when the only location of Bud’s Broiler in the city of New Orleans closed down.  Then, I was happy to hear they were reopening not far from their original location.  I love Bud’s Broiler.  And now I LOVE this place! This place actually used to be a Bud’s Broiler until they… Continue reading Ben’s Burgers, Metairie, LA Report #199
