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."

It was a cool place! I split the Mac and cheese and a cheese burger and fries with a friend. It all tasted really good, but the portions weren't as big as I would have thought for the price. There were a lot fries though, and their house made ketchup and ago sauces were both amazing! Our server was not friendly and made the mistakes of missing an entree for one of our party of 5 and a drink of another, which are the main reasons why I couldn't give a higher rating. If she had admitted her error and apologized and gave us a discount, it would have been fine, mistakes happen, people have bad days or other things are their minds, but she was not trained to take care of the customer with the mindset that the customer is always right. Clearly we wouldn't have completely forgotten to order an entree, the first one that was ordered, too.

This place serves really great food. It's got a great atmosphere and is really nice for taking visitors from out-of-town. Prices are fair but a little higher than what you'd pay in a less crafty looking spot. Sit outside and watch the traffic mess that ensues as cars try to turn off of River Rd.

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.
