What defines a kick-ass burger? For starters, it’s balance in a bun, just the right combo of toppings, sauce, and juicy meat, all working in harmony to deliver a perfect version of one of America’s most iconic dishes. The good news is, that when it comes to burgers, New Orleans has a lot to offer. From haute steakhouse blended burgers to chef-driven hamburger joints to a plethora of iconic greasy spoons and neighborhood spots, this town serves up a mean patty.
Now, Eater knows that there are fancy burgers out there, riffing on everything from barbecue to banh mi. That isn’t what this list is about. Instead, all-American burgers lead this charge, a cross-section of some of the best old-school beefy burgers that the city’s grills have to offer.
