I was told you need to have a Lucky Dog in NOLA. Well the regular dog (which I felt way overpriced for $5.00) was nothing more than a boiled hot dog with minimal trimmings. Not sure what the hype is.....or maybe you have to be...More

Found throughout the city and importantly at the airport, the 1/4 lb Lucky Dog nestled in a soft steamed bun and topped with your choice of condiments is a tasty NOLA treat. The hot dog is juicy and seasoned well, and my dog drenched in...More

We stopped here for lunch on our way to Music Legends Park. They had delicious hotdogs fresh. We really enjoyed the comedy from the vendor as he prepared our food. He was extremely friendly, entertaining and helpful in directions.

world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
