We're having some guests next week, and I'm wanting to get a couple of ideas on where to take them to eat in the French Quarter. I'm looking for something that's not extremely touristy (I guess most of the Quarter is pretty touristy though)...not Bubba Gump's or Margaritaville. I'd like to have a decent sit-down place, but not somewhere where I'll have to pay $30 for an entree. Other than that, I'm pretty open. Thanks!

Coop's Place on Decatur!!! True new Orleans grub with a bar, won't break the bank either. It's near Esplanade, not sure which side but if you can find Decatur and Esplanade you're not far.

Had actually heard about Coop's a time or two before, and believe it or not we were going to eat there this weekend, but when we got there it said you had to be 21 even to eat there, and my little brother is only 19, so we went elsewhere. We'll definitely have to try it out this week when my over-21 guests get here . Thanks for the suggestion.

Umm, Landry's is good to be chain restaurant and you won't pay as much as you would at one of the "famous" French Quarter restaurants. There's also Ralph and Kacoos on Toulouse. I could you help you out better if you wanted "traditional New Orleans" or just a good meal. There's so many restaurants in that area.

WestBank, we're not too picky. Traditional would be great, but other suggestions would also be fine.

Acme and Crescent City Brewhouse might be good.

Love the Coffee Pot Restaurant on ... can't remember the street name, but it is in the Quarter. Always my first port of call. Dry Dock Cafe in Algiers.

Deja Vu on...ker-rist, can't remember. But it's a locals hangout. Can't remember if you have to be 21 to go there or not. And I'll echo the shout-out for Dry Dock, fabulous neighborhood hangout.

Well, I'm from a family of fairly unadventurous eaters, so whenever my family comes to town, the first stop of a night out is always Port of Call on Esplanade for us. Fantastic burgers, great baked potatoes, and decent pricing. It's got some atmosphere (though a bit cramped), and is tucked away enough to give it that local feel.

Definitely worth it for cheap good food in the quarter.

Last time we ate at Crescent City Brewhouse it was really bad. I mean the food was bad, the atmosphere was good, but the food was just wrong. Too bad Coop's will not work for you.
