    Food arrived 1 hour and a half after we placed the order and it was quite blend, definitely nothing special. Portions were generous though, and the staff was very nice.

    I enjoyed the food, but the live music made it even better.

    This place was recommended as a Packer friendly bar, I do NOT recommend this place, bar was dirty & sketchy clientele & no Packer game, it was not broadcasted on their channels available that day.

    The worst service I've ever seen,owner is really rude and food..... nothing special, the only good thing is the music. I won't come back never again.

    Bartender suggested live music in back room but waiter informed us that anywhere we stood "would be in their way" and the wait for a table was 1 1/2 hour. Very small bar.

    Check out the Dr. Who art in the hallway. Live music, cheap&decent food-not touristy in the slightest.

    This is one of the best dive bars and restaurants in New Orleans, hands down. The food is incredible, love the red beans and rice dish. Perfect late night food after exploring and drinking on the town

    under the bar you can find electrical outlets and USB ports to charge your phone, but if you go to the men's room you have to piss on the wall.

    The Buffa burger is one of the best around, the camaraderie at the bar is hard to beat, and the music in the smoke-free back room is always a welcome treat.

    Worth the walk to the far corner of the Quarter. This neighborhood joint is laid back and a welcome respite from the crazier places a few blocks away. I wish we had a place like this where we live!
