The Burgers At This Legendary Restaurant In New Orleans Are As Big As Your Head
Sometimes you just get a craving for a big, juicy burger. When the craving strikes, there’s only one place to go, and that’s this legendary restaurant right here in the Crescent City. They’ve been slinging juicy burgers for over 50 years, and if you’ve never been, you’re in for a real treat.
Right on the edge of the French Quarter lies a historic little gem that you absolutely need to check out.
It might not look like much from the inside, but the inside is full of character and flavors you won't find anywhere else.
Established in 1963, Port of Call began as a humble little neighborhood haunt that has grown into one of the most popular restaurants in the city.
Over 50 years and counting, and they still serve the best burgers in the city.
Dimly lit and filled with nostalgia, don’t be surprised if you have to wait a few minutes to be seated, this place gets packed pretty quick.
Don’t worry though, your patience will be rewarded.
They originally started as a steakhouse.
And they will offer a phenomenal steak, cooked to perfection and accompanied by one of their famous baked potatoes.
But their burgers are legendary.
These half pound ground fresh daily burgers are as big as your head, so be sure to come hungry. Get your burger topped with their mouthwateringly good mushrooms for an explosion of flavors.
One of the unique things about Port of Call is that you won’t find any fries here.
All of their burgers are served with baked potatoes. You can pile on all the classic toppings on your spud, or just leave it plain with some butter.
You’ll fall in love after just one bite, they’re that good.
Locals have been coming here for decades, and it's often a tourist's first stop when they arrive. After one bite, you'll understand why.
You know what pairs great with their burgers? One of their famous drinks.
They feature several fruity island specialty drinks that pack a pretty hearty punch.
