Ye Olde College Inn, New Orleans, LA Report #323

This is an old New Orleans restaurant that’s been around in one form or another since 1933. They actually have a garden across the street where they grow things to use in the restaurant for a farm to table experience. You can’t get any fresher than that! I told a fellow New Orleanian I had… Continue reading Ye Olde College Inn, New Orleans, LA Report #323

This place actually used to be a Bud’s Broiler until they… Continue reading Ben’s Burgers, Metairie, LA Report #199

Times Grill, Mandeville, LA Report #56

This is one of my absolute favorite places for burgers although other menu items I’ve tried have been pretty good.  The place has that college game day type atmosphere, with a bar area that’s semi walled off in the dining room.  They even let you tailgate in the parking lot!  I’m sure they were happy. … Continue reading Times Grill, Mandeville, LA Report #56
