Ted’s Frostop, New Orleans, LA Report #487

This place is affiliated with the national chain of Frostop restaurants, started in 1926 in Columbus, Ohio. There’s also one in Metairie (Report #376), which is just named “Frostop”.

The menu here is also different, so I gave this one… Continue reading Ted’s Frostop, New Orleans, LA Report #487

Desi Vegas, Harahan, LA Report #1

  I heard good things about this place.  I used to love Phil’s Grill “build your own” burger menu and their menu has that feature! I’m not big on fried pickles because I normally find them too salty.  These weren’t, and the ranch type dipping sauce was delicious. The hand cut fries with real bacon… Continue reading Desi Vegas, Harahan, LA Report #1
