New Orleanians relocate for all sorts of reasons, like disasters both natural and man-made, and the need to go to a new place where they don't already know who dat is. From Nawhlins-transplants who're here to serve you delicious burgers instead: Desperados Burgers and Bar.
Desperados' owners have gutted/remodeled the comfortably divey old Polly's space with fresh paint and woodwork (leaving only the old-school register and jukebox), to better house a burger concept they've imported from one of their successful spots in New Orleans named Port of Call, a moniker landed on after discovering "Bangkok Dangerous" was already taken by a Thai place up the street. The main attraction's their eight open flame-cooked, specially blended (sirloin/brisket) burgers, including the cheddar/Swiss/American 'Cheese Lover", a Swiss/avocado/spicy red pepper-sauced Southwestern Turkey, and a grilled onions/house-made chipotle mayo Cajun, seasoned with a spicy Cajun rub about which they say they'd "have to kill you" if they told you, but who knows, it might be worth it! Other grub includes grilled Buffalo or old bay jumbo chicken wings and a baked potato "stuffed with everything"; and it's all wash-downable by six not-totally-decided taps (though definitely LA-repping Abita), 12 wines, and Port of Call's infamous white rum/151/OJ/red fruit punch "Monsoon", which they're boldly renaming the "Katrina", so expect George Bush to come and handle one like, six months from now.
Bucking the established/lazy burger culture, they're also offering free delivery in order to bring a little Louisiana right to your door, making it all the easier to become the answer to the timeless question "who fat?"
