I had the creole sausage and loved it (though some cheese wouldve finished it perfectly). She had the pulled pork which I think was even better, the slaw, pickles and bbq sauce were awesome on top of very nicely cooked pork. The guy who made the subway reference should not be taken seriously, this bun was very good and nothing... More

Stopped here on a lark. Glad we did. Lots of good sandwich options with a nod to the Louisiana po-boy tradition. Good pickles. BLT with fried egg looked good. Peacemaker was tasty.

My husband had been wanting to eat here for months and we finally did. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the food was great. We had awesome fried pickles and their donuts were great too.

First time eating there, the food and service were both excellent! Will go back in the very near future for sure! Ordered the fried shrimp sandwich, cooked perfectly and the gravy fries were out of this world! Do yourself a favor and check this place out!

We try to go when ever we are passing by and there is a parking spot. Everything is so good and made to order. It is a must try!

The place has about 8 small tables with bar stools, along with 2 tables for outdoor eating. You order and pay at the front counter and if you're dining in, a staff member will bring you the food. I ordered the large pulled pork. It was Extra Large. Presentation was good: pork was nicely smoked, not over seasoned. Sandwich comes... More

First visit for us and we will be back. The food was very good. I had the uptown. Falafel sandwich, wonderful! We like to try new places, other than chains. The staff was also very friendly. Thanks 😁

who thought sandwiches would evoke the spirit of new Orleans. here we have it. my only complaint is the bread that would remind you of the subway franchise, complete with the little dots on the underside. one more gripe would be the shredded iceberg lettuce: similar to what we all remember from the cafeteria at school. po boys owners; please...
