The Pit Viper: Jerk pulled pork, ginger sesame slaw, jalapeños, all served on a Laurel Street bakery bun –’nuff said.

9. Chicken and Watermelon

Must have: Boogie Bird wings, watermelon punch

The name says it all: if you’re looking for exotic flavors of chicken and juicy watermelon you’ve gotta come here. Plus they serve watermelon infused Oprah and Obama punch, so there’s that.

Claim to fame: Lavender honey ice cream

Perfect for any sweltering NOLA day this summer, Creole Creamery offers a variety of exotic, decadent, and refreshing ice cream flavors. Don’t hesitate to try the honey lavender, the black and gold crunch (french vanilla and chicory root with Oreos and chocolate chips), or if you’re feeling like keeping it simple, the red velvet.

11. Sammy’s Food Service & Deli

Claim to fame: Oyster stuffed turkey, pumpkin bread pudding

Have a specialty hamburger on Leidenheimer French bread bun, cajun fried chicken, or homemade macaroni. Regardless, your taste buds will pop with flavor as will the button on your pants by the time your done eating here.

12. Mahony’s Po Boy Shop

Don’t even think about coming to NOLA and not eating a po boy… and when you do get one, you’ll want it to be from here. Try Mahony’s famous Peace Maker po boy, packed with fried oysters, bacon, and cheddar cheese. 

13. Katie’s Restaurant
