Yo Mama's in New Orleans
May 11, 2018
From the outside at least Yo Mama’s looks like a typical French Quarter dive bar. Inside – to an extent – it’s a different story. The place is way ahead of the game when it comes to food. The burgers are rightly famous. You can play safe with a standard burger or opt for speciality burgers topped with caviar or peanut butter and bacon (yes, really). Some would say these are the best burgers in the city – though regulars at Port of Call might raise some objections. The jukebox, well stocked with choice Blues numbers is another reason to pay this place a visit; the drinks are decent if not quite so revelatory and the bar isn’t exactly lacking in atmosphere – especially if you visit late in the day.
What their peers say
“Did you ever walk into a bar and realise that you’d finally come home? This happened to me at Yo’ Mammas. Why? A jukebox full of Johnny Cash. Over 100 Tequilas. THE best burger in the World- topped with peanut butter. Lesbian bartenders who could kill you if they wanted. Did I mention the peanut butter burger?” – Jake Burger of Portobello Star and Ginstitute, London
