Decided on Magic Grill just because it was the easiest option. Exterior made me nervous but inside was normal mom n pop diner. I almost felt comfortable enough to sit in there by myself. Granny at the counter said I should try the poboy or burger. I got the burger, and turned out to be my favorite kind...the greasy spoon burger! Now i feel carb bloat and will have to go to the gym!
This thread has me thinking. I lived in W.M. for 5 years and although people from South Louisiana will often bash anything food related north of Alexandria - my overall "food expirience" up there was great. I just had to find the right places (and I'm not talking restaurant row off of I-20 in WM).
I just had to give my 2 cents. NELA has some really good places to eat. You just have to know where they are and not be afraid to go a little out of your way to get there.
i don't really understand why you would have needed other people with you? Cotton is a bit more formal than laid back Waterfront, especially at lunch,, but really everything in Ouachita is kinda unformal.. Waterfront would have been perfect for table of 1 or at the bar...
