No matter what date it is, Bourbon St and the entire New Orleans area will be crawling with tourists, vendors, and locals alike filing in and out of bars, restaurants, and night clubs in hopes of having an amazing night on the town.

Walking down Bourbon St, I feel like a fish swimming in an endless river of bright lights. Bouncers from every establishment calling to get my attention in hopes they will be able to hook me into spending a handful of cash at their amazing bar because they have the best music or drinks.

If you are anything like me, seeing a grown man begging you to come into a supposed "amazing" bar on the strip is the biggest turn off. If you have to try and convince people to come into your bar, you are doing it wrong!

So please take this advice on where to eat when your stomach begins begging you for food as your BAC rises. Because when you do make your way to Bourbon St, as you ultimately will after your day of checking out the French Quarter, grabbing a few daquiris and taking in the culture may hinder your decision to pick the proper place to eat. So just peek your head into "Howl At the Moon", the famous 'dueling piano' bar, and listen to a song or two as that's the most you will be able to take and then run yourself down to the Clover Grill.

Clover Grill

Off to the side, away from most of the hustle and bustle of Bourbon St, you will find Clover Grill. It is open 24 hours and is exactly what every traditional diner should be like. You can get breakfast any time of the day and the food is amazing.

Full bar seating, silver tables and chairs, and the gentleman behind the counter instantly made this place jump onto my favorites list. They are known for their breakfast, their burgers, and their weenies. Actually, this place prides itself on their weenies and the ability for you to put anything and everything you want on top of them. 


We got a mix of weenies, burgers, fries, and onion rings and loved every bite. The perfect type of food to cap off the Bourbon St festivities.


If you plan to visit New Orleans in the future, please eat here! Try their weenies and don't be afraid to have fun with the waiter!
