In a city famous for it’s Cajun and Creole cuisine, it’s kind of a big deal when a burger joint captures people’s attention. Yo Mama’s Bar & Grill is a small and unassuming French Quarter establishment, mere steps from the constant party of Bourbon St. A dark interior invites you to seek refuge from the hectic atmosphere outside, with seating available both in booths or up at the bar. Tattooed punk-rock waitresses, New Orleans Saints fans, weathered locals and fellow tourists alike can be found here. They offer a large selection of burger styles, including some stranger combinations such as “caviar and sour cream”. All burgers feature a half-pound patty and like another famous NOLA burger joint, come with either a salad or a baked potato. Though fries are not an option, you do have the option of order gumbo or crawfish/alligator sausage as a side – it is New Orleans, after all. However, there was only one burger on my mind: the Peanut Butter Bacon Burger. It came with a half-pound seasoned meat pattie, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and last but not least the peanut butter and bacon.

“The selection of burgers from the dozen or so available was a no brainer. Peanut Butter was an original topping I’d never seen offered on a burger before and I had been curious to try it since I’d heard about it months earlier. Suffice to say, I wasn’t disappointed. Served open face, this is the first burger I’ve actually chosen to leave the top bun off, and eat with a knife and fork. The cascading torrents of warm peanut butter off the sides of the patty suggested cutlery would be a wise choice. The bacon was crispy, salty and perfectly prepared. The intensity and texture of the peanut butter means that although you do get the meaty taste of the patty in every bite, its impossible to tell if the patty is well cooked or seasoned, but it clearly doesn’t matter. I was “supposed” to share this burger with others at the table, and ended up eating the whole thing myself, and wishing I still had more left.”
