Great po-boy!

First trip here and totally impressed! Roast beef po-boy was excellent. Atmosphere is typical of a po-boy joint.....open atmosphere with close sitting. Beer was cold as added bonus. Will definitely visit again. Note....plan to stand in line to order but wait for food is not bad.

Love their roast beef- extra messy please! My son has a shrimp poboy and said it was "the best ever!" We will be back! One of my long time faves.

I am from NOLA and love getting short stop everytime I am in town. It's a MUST and I can't leave without it. Very quick service (we always pick up) and some of the best French bread. So glad my parents live close to it!

Get ready to stand in line. Seating is adequate, but the demand is greater, and the locals know it. Po-boys were good (and I assume the rest of the menu is as well). Drink refills are a quarter ($.25), and if you're tuned into local culture, be prepared to see local celebrities; Vince Vance was there the night we stopped... More

My favorite thing to get here is the Shrimp Po Boy. They use small shrimp, which, in my opinion, is the best way to go. You feel like you get more "bang for your buck." it's definitely a local place, and not close to downtown, but the food is awesome.

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.
