“7:17pmComing back from Bourbon Street with some friends late hours of the night, we saw this place called Daisy Dukes. We get a table, our menus and I see something that caught my eye.

“The fact that Daisy Dukes is a dive and two doors over is a very seedy strip club I was very reluctant to give it a try. Needless to say I am glad to have overlooked that and gave tried them out. The food was great and the servers actually seem to like what they are doing.”

“I'm a New Orleans resident. Have eten at over 400 different places so far. I like 80% of the places in our city. I believe we have the best food in the nation.

Daisy Dukes Restaurant

“For a 24/7 hour Diner I was quite impressed. Brought my family in and every one loved it. We got the shrimp po-boy, wings, burgers, breakfast, gumbo, and red beans. The portions were huge. The best part about the restaurant it was right across from the hotel we were staying at. With the 3.99 ear... ”

“This place is amazing. The restuarant is beatiful and inviting, the food was just one delight after another. The bartender Mariann was one of the friendlist people we meet in New Orleans. I wish we had more time in New Orleans we would have gone back for dinner another night.”

Everyone was friendly, and t... ”
