I would have gave them 3 stars, except that I despise the fact that they write their own reviews.
THIS PLACE IS SIMPLY NOT THAT GREAT.
Nobody raves about waiting in line for 30 minutes with a bunch of drunk tourists, just to sit in a loud bar and pay $13 for a burger.

Port of Call is a New Orleans gem, a real, honest-to-goodness JOINT that does not pretend to be anything but a dive (New Orleans-speak for ""Casual Restaurant-Bar for the Locals""). The signature hamburgers are cooked perfectly and served with huge baked potatoes, which are also cooked perfectly. (There are no french fries at Port of Call & if you are wise, you will not even care!!) Be ready to load that baked potato and worry not about cholesterol or fat!! Steak is available if you would rather go easy on the carbohydrates; if you really want to be good, Port of Call serves killer delicious salad with killer delicious homemade dressings. Beer is cold and plentiful and there is a fully stocked bar; but, if you REALLY want insight into the name of this establishment, order one of the house concoctions called The Monsoon. When this rum storm blows you up, up and away, you will be glad to be safely moored at Port of Call.
Upon hearing the name "port of call", I started salivating! They have the best burgers in the world! I can't even find words to describe it. The meat is so juicy, it feels like melting down to my stomach when I swallow it. Oh how I missed their burgers. It's too bad I wont be back till next year. :(

Best Burger I've ever tasted, and im a huge fan of burgers.
I use to travel around the US for burgers.............Los Angeles for the ""In and Out burger"", very tasteful, San Antonio for ""Chris Madrids"", very juicy, and everywhere else u can think of.
But my home town New Orleans keeps the crown for the world's best burger at ""Port of Call""
Oh, be prepared to wait, and parking minimal.

Not all it's cracked up to be and has not been for a long time. That being said it's a fun place. The burgers used to be better and keep getting smaller every year along with the menu and appreciation for their clientelle. The place is not the cleanest either.. If they don't care about keeping the sidewalk clean outside the place you can only imagine what the kitchen mist look/smell like. Service is generally good and the ""Monsoon"" is a legendary cocktail.. But come on - I can think of 10 places in town to get a better burger.
