Service
 
In a city with "stiff competition for quality dives" , this "outrageously divey" Marigny "original" is a standout thanks to "cheap drinks" and "above-average" grub like "fantastic burgers" , served 24/7 by "bartenders who will party along with you" ; the "smoke-free back room" hosts "live music Wednesdays–Sundays" and an "amazing jazz brunch" ( "get there early" for a seat) amid a "locals'" scene with "just enough edge to make it interesting."

The back where they have live entertainment was great. I was really surprised at how good this place is. The food was surprisingly amazing -- one of the better meals I had in Nola, actually. The place is a dive but that's part of the charm. The bar in front is a little creepy with loud drunks, but if you go with a few friends it can be a lot of fun.

Old bar with character. Could be freshened up a bit. Food is great!! The crawfish cream sauce on the boudin balls is amazing. Burgers drinks everything is so good!! I can see why this place has been around so long.

Open 24/7, in the heart of the French Quarter, and the food is always a Hit! Buffa's may just be my #1 Favorite restaurant. Atmosphere diverse - good check, music on jukebox is an eclectic mix as us New Orleanians - Check, clean as can be for the quarter - check. Only thing is prices round $15 a plate n street parking only. Oh well it's worth it. 5 stars
