Margaritaville* (#20, 6/1/2001)
A typical tourist type place in the Quarter, but the beauty of this tourist trap is that you have great New Orleans music. The first time I went here, I saw Jeremy Lyon’s and the Delta Billy Boys. They were excellent. The food is pretty basic stuff, but one thing that is appealing, especially to the out-of-towners, is that they serve fried gator as an appetizer.
