  • under the bar you can find electrical outlets and USB ports to charge your phone, but if you go to the men's room you have to piss on the wall.
  • The Buffa burger is one of the best around, the camaraderie at the bar is hard to beat, and the music in the smoke-free back room is always a welcome treat.
  • Work place of the fantastic Sasha creature.
  • Get a GREAT breakfast 24/7 here
  • The best bar in nola. I suggest everyone who just wants a to have a peaceful time. And the jalapeno cheese poppers are the best one I've ever had
  • This is a locals bar. Totally cool laid back and cozy. Slip right in sit and have a beer. Act right if your not a local. #plugintobola
  • A good place to lose people on your tail.
  • Gator balls with crawfish sauce. Literally the best food I've had in my LIFE!!

  • If you want a local bar where everyone is friendly and the drinks are cheap this is your place! The fried green beans are amazing.
  • Great spot for a hungover Sunday brunch off Bourbon Street. Biscuits + gravy & poached eggs are the way to go. Super spicy bloody mary too (take one to go!). Oh, and a jazz band.
  • Worth the walk to the far corner of the Quarter. This neighborhood joint is laid back and a welcome respite from the crazier places a few blocks away. I wish we had a place like this where we live!
  • Have the Buffa burger med-rare and a bowl of onion rings. Oh. My. Yum.
  • shrimp creole is good. doesnt currently have a bathroom though
