I haven't been here in years, but it hadn't changed a bit over time. Even though it has been rebuilt several times (after Katrina & 2 fires), the food is exactly the same quality (& quantity) as always. My group enjoyed the Italian offerings - all with red gravy! This even included the baked mac & cheese!! I left with... More

Always a welcoming place to stop for po-boys and more. We come every year to visit family and always make multiple stops here for lunch. The atmosphere is great for families and the service is always pleasant. There is always a line but it moves quickly. We always order the same, shrimp po-boy sandwiches and are never disappointed, fully dressed... More

I grew up in St. Bernard and frequented Rocky & Carlo’s for many years. On a recent visit with family in New Orleans, we decided to make the trek down to “da parish” for a blast from the past. The place has definitely been cleaned up since the storm and the fire. It’s actually really nice and clean inside. I... More

My Dad owned a business in the Lower 9th ward and used to take us here when I was a kid---about 50 years ago, I have since moved away, but try to come here every time I return to New Orleans. It is located in Chalmette, maybe a 20 minute drive from the French Quarter. It is a bit out... More

This is real St. Bernard cooking! Good po boys and the macaroni and gravy is very yummy. A little pricing.

I have been in line for almost a half hour with only 20 people in front of me. This service, for what looks to be ready served food, is slower than ANY place I have been to around the NOLA areas. Perhaps next week I will post how the actual food tastes ... IF I have my food by then!... More

It doesn't get a whole lot better! You walk in and the place is humming. The patrons are all happy to be there and the staff are great and attentive. It is like going to a great reunion with all your best friends. The food is ready and good. The portions are very large and despite all that the price... More

If you are ever in Chalmette, La stop at this place, you will not be sorry. There roast beef po-boy is the best you will ever eat. also ther mac and cheese is fantastic also. Its a hole in the wall, but well worth it. It's about a 20 min drive from New Orleans.

Today, I had lunch at that restaurant with several other senior citizens, and I enjoyed every bit of it. The restaurant is very clean and hygienic, and was well rebuilt after Katrina as well as a recent fire. The food was excellent. I hope I can go there again soon.

Yesterday, while in line at Rocky & Carlo's in Chalmette, I heard some playful bantering going on per a couple nearby at the bar which all of our "better-halves" would love to use on us: "Why are husbands like lawn mowers? They are difficult to get started, and then they don't work half the time!" On that note, I had... More
