Another "mystery restaurant" - great sloppy hamburgers & a stage?

When my high school band traveled to New Orleans for Mardi Gras I remember having the best hamburger of my life. It was sloppy and delicious and I haven't found its likeness since. I remember the place had a little stage where a local jazz act was performing and those wonderful slatted doors which can be opened to the street on a nice day. I've wondered before it might have been Port of Call but it seems their burgers are more known for size (and I don't recall this one being unusually large). The restaurant couldn't have been too small since we were a decent size group to feed. Anyway, I was inspired by the other mystery restaurant post and thought I might have some luck as well. Anyone?

      It was in the French Quarter - we were on a bus so I don't recall specifically where. If I figure out what it is I'm going to be in trouble - we're going to NO in a couple of weeks and I already have my lunches planned (guess I'll have to get a hamburger for breakfast one day!!).

        It sounds like it might have been Tipitina's on Peters or possibly Sweet Kathleen's. I believe one is only open for private events now and the other went out of business.

        Was it in the French Quarter on N. Peters?
