This joint is pure fun. The main attraction is the Coney Island. Greasy, sloppy, overfilled, messy, they are absolutely delicious. It's a great place to hang out before or after a Saints game. This is probably the definition of a dive bar, but is situated...More

Great coney dogs and toasted ravioli. The coneys are loaded with chili cheese and onion, one of the best I've had. Was not expecting much from the toasted ravioli, but wow they were great. This is a cool dive bar, the bartender was lots of...More

First you should level set your expectations about the Gopher Bar, it's a Dive bar, cooking predominately greasy and deep fried foods so there will be a smell that lingers with you and your clothes. The inside is clean and classic with knotty pine walls...More

I've wanted to eat here for so little no & finally got to come. It was great! Our server was such a nice woman. Coneys were all I'd ever heard they were. I was not the least bit offended by a couple small signs. We...More

Bad language and dirty restrooms in this place. Coneys are pretty good but they place them on a sheet of paper and not a plate. This place is NOT a good place to bring kids.

Love this little bar. It's not fancy and it's not for the easily offended. I wouldn't recommend bringing children. It IS a bar, after all.Their Coney Dogs are delicious! Beer is icy cold. It is a classic!

Come on people, get real. Good Coney's or not. They are not joking in here. They are dead serious about the stuff on the walls and what comes out of their mouth. I am not in the category or class that they target but there...More

Best dive bar. Best coneys. A dive bar filled with nice people not scary ones. Busy at lunch time feeding the downtown crowd. If your a PC vegan you might want to try somewhere else.
