Cool, that's great, cause there's one just a block from my hotel and I noticed the prices were a bit more reasonable than those of the Commander's Palace.

I think I went there, had buckets of mudbugs, loved it but I bet there are many places like that

So go there and you'll be glad you did.

This is all walking distance in The French Quarter

Get a muffuletta from Central Grocery or Johnny Po Boys
Go to Café Du Monde for beignets
Go to Deja Vu on Dauphine St - order the alligator balls (this place is a dive but it's open 24/7 and the drinks are CHEAP!)
Coop's is good for lunch
GO TO MOTHER"S FOR BREAKFAST - This is the only place I go for breakfast (not in the Quarter but I would crawl on my hands and knees to get there - it's a couple of blocks in the CBD)

This is my first 24 hours when I get there. Thank me later.

Despite nobody mentioning Popeyes yet, I did get some excellent advice and know because I did try a few places mentioned already, including Mother's, Cafe du Monde, and Central Grocery. Anyway, I'll see how many of these other places I can squeeze in. I'm also at the conference center during the day. I noticed there is the Ugly Dog Saloon and BBQ just two blocks away. Is this ok for a quick lunch?
Yes, go to The Ugly Dog Saloon. The locals go there for lunch and the BBQ is decent. Cochon is across the street. If you go to Cochon, get the fried alligator with chili garlic mayonnaise. I would eat my shoe if it was covered in that chili garlic mayonnaise . Cochon is Donald Link's restaurant and he is a legend down there.

Fried chicken in New Orleans. Willie Mae's Scotch House by all accounts or Dooky Chase Restaurant.

Brother's Fried Chicken... yes, the fried chicken from the gas station. Way better than Popeye's if you are going for that spicy type.
