NOLA French Quarter - What are the Best Value Restaurants?
So, I'm headed out to NOLA for the first time this weekend, and trying to figure out Saturday night dinner plans...
There's a lot of debate on the 'hound boards about the best high end places to visit, which are already among our culinary stops - but I am trying to figure out, when we're burned out on white napkin/white tablecloth fine dining, where we go for dinner on a Saturday or Sunday night?
I'm totally open to the style of food, just want killer value for $$$...is it possible there?
in the Qtr., Felipe's on N. Peters, Mena's, Country Flame, EAT (byob), Acme, Felix, Napoleon House, Johnny's Po boys, Central Grocery, Port of Call
outside of Qtr., J'Anita's now at Avenue Pub, Domenica in The Roosevelt, Rambla, Cochon, Boucherie, Franky & Johnny's, Mandina's, Ye Olde College Inn
there's plenty more, but those should get you started.

edible pretty much has you covered, but I would also consider Yo Mama's if you're in the mood for burgers (or tequila, they have dozens of brands). Also, Bennachin is a favorite of mine. They do African food (specifically Gambian and Cameroonian I think...). It's very good and not pricy at all (and kind of interesting in that much of New Orleans' culinary tradition has roots in Africa). I'll also second Felipe's. Good Tex-Mex for pretty cheap. I eat there for lunch pretty frequently.
1212 Royal St, New Orleans, LA 70116
Yo-Mama's Bar & Grill

Many great places already mentioned. My vote goes to Napoleon House. The best mix of inexpensive and causal without a loss of atmosphere. Love the building and the staff.
