Had one, but they are steamed hot dogs, I thought they would be grilled and more like a German Hot Dog with skin on, didn't care for them. I know people swear by them, perhaps they had so much to drink it didn't matter. Maybe...More

Personally, I LOVE Lucky Dogs and have been eating them all my life. And I've spent LOTS of time in the Quarter DURING my life (although now they're also offered in some supermarkets, packaged as wieners) and in several locations around the state. They offer...More

Lucky Dogs are famous in New Orleans. They hardly ever make anyone sick. And it's a great end of the night of drinking just before going back to your hotel or home. Eat it in your room, if you'd rather. It'll be cold by the...More

Lucky Dogs have a vendor on most corners of Bourbon Street. We enjoyed stopping by after a night at the bars. It was a yummy, quick snack to eat before heading back to our hotel. Hit the spot! Can't wait to go back.

If you want to try all the "local" foods. Go for the crawfish, gumbo, muffulato, or Po' Boy. A hot dog for $4.50, not worth the taste or the space in your stomach. Find some good food New Orleans has to offer.

OK, you can say you were in the movies . . . well sort of. I just read that they are making a movie of the book "Confederacy of Dunces" which featured Lucky Dogs. Now other than the bun, and the dressing, you don't really...More

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
