Late Night Dining at Yo Mama's

Had a midnight meal at Yo Mama's last night...I'd heard this joint was on peer level status with Port Of Call in the burger department.Not true.The patty was nice and plump and was of decent quality beef.There was no char on the outside but it came as ordered med rare,topping choice was bacon[along with mayo,lettuce and tomato] which was not of the best quality.The bun was standard issue and had been neither toasted nor grilled...the end result being a big soggy mess.The quintessential NOLA burger side is a baker and this one had seen better days[Ay Jed]the topping were cheddar[bland]butter[not enough]and more of the flat tasting bacon.The Tequila menu is lengthy and diverse,there is both cage and pole dancing on the tiny stage and the bartender[who was also the server]kept the joint rocking with some very good musical selections[and rendered good service].Yo Mama's became the supper choice after a night of drinking and realizing that most of the restaurants in the vicinity roll up the silverware by 10 pm.I'd go back,skip the food and concentrate on Tequila drinking and soaking in some very fine atmosphere
