When it comes to burgers, New Orleans has a lot offer. The city hopped on the modern burger restaurant chain a few years ago, heralded by fine dining chef-driven hamburger joints with locally sourced ingredients, but The Big Easy is also home to a plethora of iconic greasy spoons and neighborhood spots that serve up a mean patty.
On this map you'll find lots to choose from. This is by no means the be-all and end-all of New Orleans burgers, but a great guide to the most popular spots.
On this map, you'll find thick charcoal-grilled pub burgers, fancy fine dining burgers, fast food style burgers, and even a sweet and savory food truck variation. There's a little something for everybody, with toppings for everyone from chipotle-lovers to tomato-haters...but sorry, no turkey or veggie burgers here—we're talking meaty, beefy burgers only.
There are established favorites that continue to dominate the game, and newcomers that have made big names in the recent years. Note: Ever tumultuous French Quarter peanut butter burger hub Yo Mama's appears to be shuttered.
These burgers are not ranked, but simply arranged by neighborhood. Don't see a burger that deserves to be called a New Orleans essential? Leave a comment or send Eater NOLA a tip. As always tips are greatly appreciated, and tipsters always remain anonymous.Read More
