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.

Pages and pages are written about food in New Orleans. Most places that tourists hear about and go to are tourist traps, that are about as authentic as a Cajun restaurant in Topeka. Short Stop is a genuine New Orleans style restaurant. It has most of the New Orleans classics, at great prices. It is the real deal, and I've... More

I have been coming here since I was a child! Great food run by a fantastic family. My favorites are the shrimp poboy and the roast beef, but their catfish plate is wonderful!

While our daughter and her family were in town earlier this week from Kansas, we got some poboys from Short Stop Poboys on Transcontinental (a block from Airline Hwy.). I got my usual Oyster Poboy and Maria, my wife, got her Shrimp Poboy (which both were great), but our Son-in-Law and Daughter split a Roast Beef Poboy. How surprised we... More

I've been wanting to try a poboy from Russels for about 4 years. I finally got a chance today. I ordered a king (14 inches) shrimp with all the fixins. Fries with a side of roast beef debris. You gotta get that and put on the fries. Hell, I even put the debris on my shrimp! It was tasty to... More

Russell's Short Stop Poboys at 119 Transcontinental, Metairie, LA is and has been a very popular source of good poboys. Having not been there for a year or two, we stopped in yesterday for a good old roast beef and a shrimp poboy. We were surprised that there wasn't the usual long line waiting to order, at around 1:00 p.m.... More

I was in the area and wanted a shrimp po-boy, this place was highly recommended. I ordered jambalaya and gumbo with my sandwich. I wasn't blown away, the bread was a little tough for a po-boy, but overall the food was good and my craving for a po-boy was quenched.

I used to live in New Orleans and this was one of my favorite places to go for lunch so just had to stop in and bring my sister for her first PoBoy. Love their roast beef, crunchy French bread, well seasoned tender and just enough gravy to soften the bread, yumm!
