This was the second to last stop of a long day walking around New Orleans. They have a large sign out front in the shape of a sandwich with their name on it. The menu looked really interesting but I was saving my appetite for some BBQ so instead I just went with a beer. They have a small lineup of about eight taps and a few bottles and since it was late the beers were cheap. They also had a few dedicated locals hanging out at the bar, shutting it down on a Monday night. I regret now not trying the food as the menu looks pretty good, especially since it turns out that Voodoo BBQ isn’t all that impressive. Then again, neither is the beer list here. They’ve got the staples like Abita and NOLA but they had some random selections from Tin Roof and LA 31 that I hadn’t seen in other places in town. I went with a new one from Tin Roof. Getting back to the menu for a second: they’ve got shrimp, catfish, and oysters available as toppings, which I would have scrolled past even if I had planned on eating here. They had some better looking options too (I don’t like seafood, nothing against shrimp, catfish, or oysters) like chicken parmesan, meatballs, and some more inventive mixes of meats and other toppings. Next time I’ll have to eat here.
