Port Of Call, New Orleans, LA Report #179

  I was born in New Orleans in the 1960’s and have been here ever since.  So has this place, located right on the eastern edge of the French Quarter.  As long as I can remember I’ve heard that this is THE place to get a burger.   They’re supposedly the best in the world. … Continue reading Port Of Call, New Orleans, LA Report #179

District Donuts, New Orleans, LA Report #177

  This is the Lakeview location.  I hear everyone refer to this place just as District Donuts, but I guess technically the name of the place is District Donuts.Sliders.Brews.  That’s a better name since they’re about so much more than donuts.  But the donuts are special.  At least the one I had was!  More on… Continue reading District Donuts, New Orleans, LA Report #177

The Camellia Grill, New Orleans, LA Report #157

  I always thought of this place as a burger place.  Not a breakfast place.  But today we had a great breakfast there! My dining partner started out with scrambled eggs, bacon and grits.  About as simple as you can get.  She enjoyed it.  And you see the syrup serving type vase thing behind the… Continue reading The Camellia Grill, New Orleans, LA Report #157

My dining partner wanted to start off with a… Continue reading Heads & Tails, Harahan, LA Report #149

Bud’s Broiler, New Orleans, LA Report #123

I’m a big fan of burgers and this is my lifetime favorite burger joint.  The original Bud’s Broiler opened up in a New Orleans suburb in 1952.  This was the next location, and the first one to open in the city of New Orleans, at 500 City Park Ave., in 1956. This building is very… Continue reading Bud’s Broiler, New Orleans, LA Report #123

Fharmacy Bar & Grill, New Orleans, LA Report #94

I heard good things about the burgers at this place so it was high time I gave it a try.  The fact someone stole the “C” and “Y” off the side of the building doesn’t speak too well of the neighborhood it’s in, but I’ll risk anything for a good burger.  A couple Vietnamese guys… Continue reading Fharmacy Bar & Grill, New Orleans, LA Report #94

Five Guys, Harvey, LA Report #91

  I normally wouldn’t review a national chain but I’m a serious burger lover.  That doesn’t mean I’d review joints like Burger King or McDonald’s, but just the special burger places, like Atomic Burger (Report #35), Desi Vegas (Report #1), Ground Patti (Report #13), Mooyah (Report #67), New Orleans Hamburger and Seafood (Report #25), Red… Continue reading Five Guys, Harvey, LA Report #91
