December 11, 2020
By: Abbey Hebert

We all know how intense game-day can be, especially when it's between the Saints and the Eagles. Grab your family and friends and escape to one of these restaurants, to be surrounded by other Saints-lovers. Indulge in delicious dishes to help take your focus off those nail-biting moments that are a part of any good Saints game.

MoPho

MoPho's patio is a perfect place to watch the game: It's outside, so you can yell at the Eagles, and it's surrounded by calming greenery to help you recover from any upsetting plays. Because it's finally starting to cool down in the Big Easy, MoPho's delicious and hot pho will help keep you warm (as will all the standing and jumping whenever the Saints score). Indulge in the chicken pho, the veggie pho, or the beef pho, as these are customer favorites. You won't be disappointed in your game-day experience at MoPho. 514 City Park Ave., (504) 482-6845, mophonola.com

Rivershack Tavern

Rivershack Tavern has an expansive list of domestic, local, and imported beers for you to sip on while watching the game. Ease your anxiety with a Bud Light Lime, a Covington Strawberry, or a Heineken. This restaurant also has delicious appetizers for you to snack on, such as buffalo wings, crab cakes, and fried green tomatoes. Rivershack Tavern also has TVs throughout the place, so you'll be able to watch the game from your table and while walking up to the bar. 3449 River Rd., (504) 834-4938, rivershacktavern.com

Neyow's Creole Cafe

Neyow's Creole Cafe has many authentic New Orleans dishes to indulge in while watching the Saints game. No better way to show pride for the place you're from than watching the game while eating some red beans. Neyow's has TVs sprinkled throughout, so you can watch the Saints score from the bar or from your table. Order Neyow's Extravaganza Dinner for two, which comes with gumbo, house salads, fish, shrimp, oysters, stuffed crab, stuffed shrimp, a steak, two sides, and two desserts. It'll help you get through the game. 3332 Bienville St., (504) 827-5474, neyows.com

Wrong Iron

Wrong Iron, described on their website as "a New Orleans-style beer garden with food trucks," is 21-and-up only, so come here to watch the Saints game with your friends. Click here to reserve either an inside table or a spot on the patio for your group. Wrong Iron offers five cocktails on tap, frozen cocktails, four daiquiri machines, over 50 beers on tap, and wine. This restaurant's appetizers will be a great distraction from the intensity of the game; once you start gnawing on the nachos with pulled pork or the cheese plate, you'll feel your worries drift away. 3532 Toulouse St., (504) 302-0528, wrongiron.com

Lakeview Harbor
Lakeview Harbor serves the tasty and filling sandwiches and burgers we all want in our hands on game day. This restaurant offers Lakeview's Original Burger, the Spicy Burger, and a turkey burger.
