Hoodline crunched the numbers to find the best affordable bars in New Orleans, using both Yelp data and our own secret sauce to produce a ranked list of where to satisfy your cravings.

Three Legged Dog, a bar and traditional American spot in the French Quarter, is another cheap go-to, with four stars out of 212 Yelp reviews. Head over to 400 Burgundy St. to see for yourself. 

The site can tell you a thing or two more about Three Legged Dog.

"We opened January 1, 2000, and it's been a wild and crazy ride," according to the history section of the business's Yelp profile. "Let's keep it going."

As to what the business is known for, "The Bar is a real family-run place," it states on Yelp in the section highlighting specialties. "Stop in and be a part of our lives. We have great food, drink specials and a laundromat."

2. Tropical Isle Original

Over in the French Quarter, check out this location of the New Orleans-based chain Tropical Isle Original, which has earned four stars out of 210 reviews on Yelp. Dig in at the bar by heading over to 600 Bourbon St. Grab a famous hand grenade from the bar.

Yelper Alan V., who reviewed Tropical Isle Original on Jan. 5 wrote, "Based on the number of people I seen with the iconic green cups, grabbing a Hand Grenade from Tropical Isle seems to be a staple of the Bourbon Street experience"

AndYelper Steve R. wrote, "Nothing special about the place, but you should definitely stop in for a Hand Grenade to enjoy as you walk around Bourbon Street."

3. Corporation Bar & Grill

And then there's Corporation Bar & Grill, a Lower Garden District favorite with four stars out of 175 reviews. Stop by 931 S. Peters St. to hit up the bar and Cajun/Creole spot next time you're looking to satisfy your cravings on a budget.

A variety of alcoholic beverages are on offer here. Everything from tap beers to spirits to cocktails can be ordered. Hungry? Score a bowl of chili or a burger.
