The Triple Nickel's greatest usefulness is that it's the closest real restaurant to Pelican Park, where most North Shore youth athletic teams play their games. After the game, the kids and the coaches are hungry for the likes of burgers, sandwiches, fried seafood, and salads. Which is what they have here, along with some daily specials.
It opened in 2003 with a hamburger that cost $5.55, hence the name. (It's now about $7.) The original owner of the place now runs the Rusty Pelican in Mandeville.
It's a utilitarian space in a strip mall, with paraphernalia from local sports teams dominating the decor.
The seafood is the best specialty. The ham and turkey sandwiches are to be avoided.
