Stopped by while doing business in Metairie. Arrived before the lunch crowd; 11:00AM. I wanted a quarter but they only do half. Ok. Toasted or Not toasted?? Toasted; always!! Served hot and fresh. Just enough meat, cheese, olive salad and that wonderful crispy bread. Heaven!!

Great place to grab a PO-boy or plate lunch.custom deli which cooks its own roast beef, as well as casseroles. Olive salad is best in Nola, muffalletta is famous. Limited parking, but nothing is perfect.

My trip home is never complete without a Roast Beef Po Boy from World Deli! There are a lot of good po boy spots in Metairie, and this one is at the top!

Local favorite for po boys, muffuletta, and Italian fare. Great take out. Limited parking. Great meatballs, Italian sausage. Get the Seafood po boys when available.

You don't have to stand in line for over an hour to get an over-hyped and over-priced po'boy. Here is as good as you'll probably find in Nola. The roast beef with debris was so much better than I've had anywhere else - it was all meat and no gristle or fat. I had a bite of my friend's muffaletta,... More
