Great Meal, you MUST go!

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...

This is the one place I am sure to visit when in Portland. Having lived in Louisiana I can tell you that they have Po'Boy down. I had my favourite, the oyster po'boy and it was great. I also bought a frozen gumbo to go for later. Can't beat this place.

We consistently split the large Peacemaker - half shrimp and half oyster - with a bowl of gumbo, and coconut macaroons for dessert. The food is consistently good - with an authentic Louisiana taste and an atmosphere that transports us to New Orleans.

We went in starving and left so full and happy. The po'boys were great, even so far from New Orleans! I would recommend they switch from vertically cut frickles to horizontally cut frickles, but any place with fried pickles is okay with us!

The restaurant is actually really nice, with a courteous friendly staff and good food. Its uniqueness in the Greater Portland area draws a lot of people here for Cajun sandwiches. However, for $13 for a large sandwich in the Portland area, I wasn't particularly blown away by the quality of the food. Don't get me wrong, it was a very... More
