Good food, Good Prices, Long Lines

Very popular. Long lines at lunch time. The sandwiches are very good, especially the Shrimp Po-Boy. The Onion rings were hot and tasty. Not as fond of the dressed roast beef but still good.

I ordered 3 sandwiches on line. Got there 15 minutes later to be told my order would not be ready for 30 minutes. So I said well can I cancel that and just order here because it takes about 5 minutes to get an order and there was no line. They said no your put in place with the phone... More

Went there about 3 weeks ago on Friday night and purchased 2 roast beef sandwiches. The meat was tasteless; I both these 2 sandwiches few times before and hey were really good. The meat & gravy ucually has a slight garlic flavor with a hint of salt. These 2 sandwiches were terrible. What happened???

They offer all the standard po-boy fare in the New Orleans area as well as staples like red beans and rice and gumbo. Had the hot sausage and tried the fried shrimp and the roast beef. These were not the worst but they were not the best around either. A lot of locals eat here. I would recommend them.

This place has the best PoBoys I have ever had. Every time I am in NewOrleans I make a special trip out here for the most mouth watering Roast Beef PoBoy. Even though the line is often out the door at lunchtime they are very fast. Our favorites are Roast Beef with mayo & Swisd, Fried Oyster, & Shrimp.

This is about 7 miles from downtown but always worth the trip. Po Boys are like hamburgers, it's not a matter of if its good but your preference at the time. The roast beef here is like no other, they chop the meats opposed to slices and the flavor and unique bread make it an original, in a town where... More

The best shrimp po boy around! Always busy and a little hectic so be prepared for a possible wait. It will be worth it. Husband gets the oyster and others in our party have gotten the crayfish and meatball poboys. No one was disappointed!

I had to wait for a while to place my order in a place where lines are expected. Except for the fact that the employees taking the orders were playing around and joking amoung themselves. My roast beef po boy was at best ok and I was very disappointed. I normally enjoy going here. They must have had a off... More

As we left my favorite city to eat, we followed the Jefferson Parish oyster trail to this shop. Had the oyster, but roast beef appeared to be the preferred order, and was told by a regular that once you try the BBQ you'll never order anything else.

Thank you for stopping in on your way out of town Janet. We're always happy to see a new face come in the door and a smile leave afterwards!
