    You get only four choices for the half-pound sandwich: with or without cheese, and with or without mushrooms. In lieu of fries, your accompaniment is a big baked potato. Read more

    LOVE this place! Our favorite US burger joint, & well worth the wait! We sit at the bar & order a (huge!) cheeseburger, loaded baked potato and a big & boozy Monsoon. Best hole-in-the-wall in NOLA!!

    Get the Burger and everything on the potatoes butter, sour cream, bacon bits, green onions topped with smothered mushrooms. My wife ordered the steak her first time... it's her regular order now.

    If you love burgers, this place is worth the usually long wait to get in. They invented the New Orleans style burger (think HUGE). Don't expect any french fries though--a baked potato is their thing.

    "The burgers here are fantastic. I like to get my cheeseburger with a side of cheeseburger. (It's less embarrassing than ordering two cheeseburgers outright)." - Conan O'Brien

    I'll admit that the burger was good, and certainly a lot of meat for the money. But come on guys, you've hyped this too much. The burgers at Yo Mama's in French Quarter are waay more juicy and tasty.

    Best burger in town but you can't beat the price of a solid rib eye. Eat either. Leave happy. Expect a wait. Keep an eye in the bar. Great place to eat.

    Great place to grab dinner in Marigny. Might be a wait, but grab a drink to pass the time. Eating at the bar also will help you avoid the line.

    Try a Neptune Monsoon to drink. A blend of tropical juices, passion fruit and two kinds of rum. A large pour, so one will do you more than well.

    burger is very good size and they are well seasoned... potato is a nice twist and there is no other starch option. I recommend ordering the cheese burger with mushrooms and the potato with cheese....

    Gotta love a place with a simple menu that can back it up. Get the burger. Thick, juicy, delicious. Don't hesitate to load up the potato

    Get a Neptune's Monsoon - two kinds of rum and a mix of tropical juices in a 20 oz cup . On a lunch break? Get a Windjammer - just half a Monsoon.

    It's a half pound burger with a baked potato on the side, it's great!! If you like your burger rare, they'll make one that practically moos.

    I call 'em how I see 'em: Ridiculous wait for what is arguably the best burger in New Orleans. Damn it's good! But is it worth the wait? Close call. Probably, yes.

    Order a few burgers. Sure, they’re so succulent and delicious, but they cook down to a “where’s the beef” size. They’re not quite sliders, but hardly brontosaurus burger size either. Read more

    You may wait a while for a table, but try the burger - it's worth every minute in line. Plus, who ever heard of serving a burger with a baked potato instead of fries? Surprisingly, it works.

    Huge, juicy cheeseburgers that come with a baked potato instead of fries- get it with cheese, sour cream, bacon and chives!

    The wait can get long but order a tall drink at the bar and you won't even notice! You get a baked potato on the side of your burger, no fries.

    Burgers are great - potatoes even better. Prepare to wait in line to get a table.

    I was swatting away flies for most of my meal, and the "chives" on the baked potato were really just green onions, but DAMN was that one juicy burger!

    The burger and fully loaded potato are life-altering. Washing it town with a Monsoon! It's a big drink you can take to go!
  • Crystal C.
    If you want cheese on your baked potato don't pay extra for it, they give you so much on your burger you can use it for both. Food was delish!

    One of the best burgers I've ever eaten. Pair it with a monsoon, one of the best drinks I've ever had.

    Try the Neptune's Monsoon - The original $10 drink that doesn't take 10 minutes to make. 1/3 through and I'm feeling it. Going to make me want the burger even more

    The burger of all burgers. Baked potato loaded. Monsoon: Tastes like heaven and at the end you'll be a happy, giggling native.

    The beef is fresh-ground daily and hand-formed into burly patties that are char-scarred on the grill. Read more

    Do not miss a chance to eat here. Their cheeseburgers are probably the best in the US. Very small menu and there is usually a decent wait after 6pm.

    Wait outside with your drink of choice, mine = Windjammer, when you finally get a table, order a burger with everything and a baked potato with everything. Then nap.

    A monsoon is a good start to a great night (or afternoon) (or morning). Oh yeah, and people seem to like the burgers.
