This "old, converted filling station" in Carrollton lures "students, families and hipsters" with "creative" New American takes on comfort food, including "grown-up grilled cheese" and "some of the best burgers in New Orleans" topped with "housemade ketchup" , plus "delish" cocktails; though parking can be "tight" and the "joint" is "always crowded" , a happy staff puts diners "in a good mood from the minute they sit down."

Food: 5 stars Service: 4 stars Ambiance: 4 stars The food here is delicious, no two ways about it. I've never had anything here that I didn't like. The service is pretty good, though it is difficult to get any attention after the meal is served, to refill a beverage for instance. The ambiance is good. It's a little packed it, bit nothing too extreme.

Very good Mac n Cheese, roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon totally rules. The entrees are all pretty good, don't be fooled by the cheese burger, go with the adult grilled cheese instead. They have a nice assortment of non alcoholic beverages along with a solid beer menu. Nice environment, friendly and fast staff, last stop in NOLA before you end up in suburban hell. If your uptown it's worth a try.

Have dined here a number of times... what keeps me coming back isn't the price (120$ for dinner for 3 at a burger restaurant isn't cheap). What keeps us coming back is the quality ingredients and (usually) the quality preparation. Tonight, however, I paid 16$ for an overcooked hamburger that I had ordered medium rare. Having a small child with our party, I did not have time to wait to have a new meal cooked to my desired temperature. The well-done burger was still delicious, the mac n cheese was face melting as usual, and the cocktails were on point. That being said, it was and is still depressing that I paid close to 20$ for an overcooked hamburger.
