Let's face it, New Orleans isn't much of a slider town. In fact, given the chance to downsize any form of sandwich or burger here, would most of us actually choose to do so? We are the land of giant and messy roast beef po' boys and Muffullettas big enough to have their own elliptical revolution.

Even so, there are a few places known for their outrageously delicious sliders. But if you think that means you're going to find a mini cheeseburger at every stop you're wrong. From pork belly to duck pastrami, here are Five Must-Try Sliders in New Orleans.

Got a favorite slider that isn't on the list? Leave a comment, or send us an email, and we'll update this map live during Slider Power Hour.

Okay, so the duck pastrami sliders have nothing to do with classic sliders. It's really a duck pastrami/grilled cheese sandwich cut into fours, but anybody who has ever stepped foot in Butcher knows to order these melty, smoky sliders even if you order another sandwich too.

4. Tivoli & Lee
