Here in New Orleans, we know that we live in a city with a collective drinking problem. We like to go out, have some drinks, catch some music. In many ways, that's the core of the Laissez les bons temps roulez attitude that we're (in)famous for. But as we all know, when you're out and about doing your New Orleans thing, sometimes you just need to eat, something, anything. For occasions such as these, herein we present Eater New Orleans' map of the best drunk food in town.

Many thanks to the Ultimate Omnivore, Andrew Marin, for helping to curate this list.
