American Sports Saloon, New Orleans, LA Report #394

Normally, there’s no way I’d end up at a sports bar in the French Quarter. But way back in Report #334 I explained how I get reward points for hotel stays for dining at certain restaurants. I got an email (2nd picture above), telling me I’d get 500 bonus points for spending $30 at this… Continue reading American Sports Saloon, New Orleans, LA Report #394

Frostop, Metairie, LA Report #376

Even though I’m WAYYYYY to young to remember 1950 style diners, I love going to them. I love the old fashioned decor and the 1950’s music they play to match. I’ve seen Frostops around New Orleans all my life and had no idea if it was a national, or local restaurant chain. After a quick… Continue reading Frostop, Metairie, LA Report #376

The Company Burger, New Orleans, LA Report #355

I ate at this place maybe 5 years ago, before I started doing these reports. I had the lamb burger and loved it. No idea why I haven’t come back until today, but better late than never. This place is fantastic. According to their website they grind Creekstone Farms Premium Black Angus beef for their… Continue reading The Company Burger, New Orleans, LA Report #355

Lakeview Harbor, New Orleans, LA Report #342

I love this part of the city. It’s loaded with restaurants. The ones I’ve reported on around here are The Blue Crab, Landry’s Seafood House, Felix’s Restaurant & Oyster Bar, Russel’s Marina Grill and Sala. This place is sandwiched right between the last two on that list. All of this is right on the south… Continue reading Lakeview Harbor, New Orleans, LA Report #342

Lula Restaurant Distillery, New Orleans, LA Report #281

  I’ll be so glad when this Coranavirus has run it’s course and I can go sit down in a restaurant again!  Until then, restaurants need our support more than ever.  And of course, I still need to eat! This place is right on St. Charles Ave., but for some reason I’ve never noticed it. … Continue reading Lula Restaurant Distillery, New Orleans, LA Report #281

Shake Shack, Metairie, LA Report #276

If there’s any other street in the New Orleans Metro area with more burger joints than Veterans Memorial Blvd. in Metairie, I can’t think of it.  You’ll also find Atomic Burger, Lee’s Hamburgers, Mooyah and New Orleans Hamburger & Seafood on this strip, and that’s just the ones I’ve tried! The place was pretty busy… Continue reading Shake Shack, Metairie, LA Report #276

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

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

Lee’s Hamburgers, Metairie, LA Report #227

This place has been here as long as I can remember, but until today, I’ve never stopped in.  I’m not sure how long this location has been here, but the original Lee’s opened up in downtown New Orleans in 1901! Small place.  Only four booths and five tables.  But that should be plenty, because the… Continue reading Lee’s Hamburgers, Metairie, LA Report #227

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
