Their most famous burger has been described as "white trash Thai" because they top it with creamy peanutbutter. But really, that's such an insult to the Thai community, and to the (proud) white trash of America.

It's an insult to the institution of hamburgers, too! It would have been okay plain, but we were curious and went for the extreme stuff — the peanut butter burger, and the monster burger, which is two half-pound "standard" patties. We ordered the latter with bleu cheese.

Burgers come with a side of fries, baked potato, or potato salad. They were good, actually. Which is a good thing because the burgers took so long to come out.

The food all came out late, after everyone else who'd come into this place after us had been served. They claimed it was because of the monster burger which takes longer to cook. Yet it was NOT twice the size ... it was simply TWO patties. So, are they lying? Or is the cooking area really as small as it looked from where we sat?

We also ordered gator sausage, which never materialized. We had been planning to buy an order of crawfish boil with corn and potatoes because a guy was firing up a big pot out front and it smelled amazing. But they never came to ask if we wanted anything else.

If you must order the peanut butter burger, be sure to ask them to hold the mayonnaise. Come to think of it, with the peanut butter contamination scares, it's just another excuse not to order this "signature" burger.

This is a bar specializing in tequila shots, after all, and not a culinary hotspot. But their cook was careless and unskilled and kind of rude — when asked when the gumbo would be ready, he said, "I don't know." And then when he had some lag time, he sat at the bar and smoked, instead of preparing the gumbo.

The waitresses had nice boobs. Hey, that's a feature in bar culture, and especially in the French Quarter around Mardi Gras, after all. Just like the bathrooms out back, which you have to access by going into the outdoor courtyard. Yeah, they're outhouses. You can pass under the big bunch of garlic hanging from the stairways.

And just in case you're wondering, the lady's room is papered with old newspapers. The men's room is papered with centerfold porn from iconic magazines.

This place maybe should be called, "NOT yo mama's"? At least, we sure hope yo mama's isn't like this!
