Finished touring Tulane, looking for a beer and a sandwich, saw the sign so went in. Was disappointed that they don't have beer there (like the sign) but the BBQ hamburger was worth the visit. Very friendly workers. Not a fancy place but definitely worth...More

We got in late as since our flight was delayed. Our host recommended Bud's because it was open. We went and ordered burgers and fries. The service was slow but the place was packed so that was a good sign. It was worth the wait....More

My family popped in here for a late snack supper and we were very pleasantly surprised by how good it was. The workers were all extremely nice and the service was pretty quick.

I liked it all. Dropped in after the Saints game on Sunday for a #4, cheeseburger with BBQ sauce. You can't get BBQ sauce at many places in uptown. I also had a favorite...a baked peach turnover; yeah baby!

Step into the 40's and enjoy the tastes and prices of yesteryear. The long, thin dining area faces the counter and the all important charcoal grill. Basically it's an outdoor fire pit brought indoors, the charcoal burning brightly under an ancient grill, burgers gaining that...More

There are several Bud's Broiler's in the New Orleans area. Besides great burgers served in your choice of several tasty sauces, they have a healthy grilled chicken sandwich with a thick slice of tomato and lettuce. As might be expected from this city, they also...More

Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the
students living in the area ensure that Uptown and
Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly
fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife
and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s
