      The suggestions are good but as of last month, I discovered the most delicious cheeseburger in the city. The best. Go to Luke Restaurant on St. Charles Ave. It is so big that it can easily be split. The beef is top quality, the bacon thick, and the cheese superb. All of this served between the softest, freshest, onion roll made by a local bakery. In addition, the fries that come with it are in my opinion also the best in town.

    2. Port of Call

      (I'm not sure on their openess, but runners up include:
      Michaels MId City Grill

      Try Verti Mart's Hamburger po-boy (i used to hit that up late night all the time)

          Port of Call



          I've been wanting to try Yo Mama's. I hear they have a better burger than Port of Call.

        1. yo mama's get's my vote. keep meaning to try beachcomber

          1. Michael's Mid-City grill ain't dere no more. In it's place is Cafe Minh where there happens to be a fantastic kobe burger. That said, I'm in the Yo Mama's camp and I like Bruno's and GB in the Riverbend.

            1. The best and most consistent burger in town is Port Of Call. Lakeview Harbor on Harrison is almost exactly the same as Port Of Call but not as busy and no tourists. I think they are owned or managed by the same folks. Yo Mama's are good but inconsistent, messy, and the beef used is not as good. Also, try out Clover Grill on Bourbon St. It is good and is always worth it for the environment.

                the messiness of the yo mama's burger is one of the things i like about it. they may use a higher fat meat for their burgers than port o call with their lean thick burgers but i like that. imo a burger should be messy, greasy and just plain artery clogging.
