There are tons of cheap ($10 or less) places to eat downtown. There's Serio's (huge LSU fan) & FredRicks on St. Charles, P&G on Barrone - seafood and muffelettas are awesome and they serve breakfast too, Mothers on Poydras - which is the proverbial tourist trap but the Fergie and Debris po-boys are well worth the wait. For more standard fare there's also a food court at Place St. Charles. I also like the enchilada at Country Flame in the Quarter - STUFFED with beef or chicken and about a pound of cheese.

All the above are great. Take the Canal Streetcar and get off and eat great seafood at Mandina's (cash only). Great ride. Take the "Katrina" tour - it's a chance to see what happened, what hasn't happened and what's beginning to happen. If you're here on a weekend, go to MidCity Rock'nBowl. It's an old time bowling place with good food and great bands on the weekends. Walk up and down Royal and Chartres Streets in the Quarter and go to Cafe du Monde. Be a tourist and have a drink at Pat O'Briens (the patio is great, but the room with the pianos is even better).

Great places and not expensive in the Quarter- Acme Oyster House, Redfish Grill, Gumbo Shop, Croissant D'Or. Actually, although it's kinda touristy, Margaritaville has very good food, as does House of Blues. Crescent City Brewhouse has good food.

Enjoy yourself. Spend lots of money - we sure could use it!

Mmmm debris po-boys at Mothers..... makes me drool. Domelise's(sp?) is good too. You got to have a shrimp po-boy somewhere too. Without a car in the French Quarter is tough. You could take the street car (isnt' it up now?) to plenty of places along St Charles. Is Camelia Grill back in business? Also, snow balls. Find one, you'll love them. You can't go wrong with good fresh seafood.
