    At the end of Bourbon Street is this amazing restaurant around the corner. It's definitely a filling meal with a great burger and baked potato. The drinks are great and definitely worth the walk. Take a drink and go enjoy Bourbon Street.

    The burger was ok, heard this is the best burger place in the area....which may be true. But def not the best burger an LA foodie ever had.

    We went when it wasn't busy, nice neighborhood to walk around in. The inside smelled kinda slightly funky (cleaning products?). The service was a bit slow when not many peeps were there.

    Interior was pretty cool. Careful about asking for extra condiments because they'll charge you extra without telling you.

    Great burger, giant monsoons and a fantastic NOLA vibe. Great pitstop no matter which direction you are heading on or over Esplanade. Just be sure to roll in with some patience as there's likely going to be a wait if you want a table.

    Touted as the best burger in NOLA, we had to try this place out. It's located a couple blocks past Lafitte's at the end of Bourbon. Totally walkable during the day, but questionable at night. Interior decor is like inside a barque with wood, nets, and ship tools plastered on the walls.

    -=-Mushroom Cheeseburger-=- On paper and in picture, the burger looks fabulous. In execution and in flavor, not so much. The style of burger here is that they decided to keep it simple, but the near unseasoned patty was bland and boring. Cheese, onions, and mushrooms brought this burger up to better flavor standards, but after throwing down more than $13 for a burger, you want more than just plain.

    -=-Baked Potato-=- While they don't have fries here, they offer a whole baked potato as a side. It was perfectly cooked and came with heapings of bacon, chives, and cheese on top. Halfway into the potato, we noticed that it was missing one more crucial element so we requested sour cream from our waitress for our half eaten potato. Low and behold the flavor is beyond enhanced with sour cream added. One gripe that I did leave with this place with is that our waitress didn't disclose to us that sour cream would be an additional $1.25. Had we known, we would have passed on it for a potato already half eaten.

    A great place to eat - within 100 yards of the Captain's Cottage.
