Great Shrimp and Oyster PoBoys

I had a six inch oyster poboy and a six inch shrimp poboy. Got both of them dressed and they were great! The gumbo was good with a little local flavor. It's different than the dark brown gumbo you get in LA. Wait staff were very attentive and friendly. It was well worth the drive.

A true Mississippi seafood joint worthy of a stop for Diners, Drive-ins and Dives! Make sure you stop here -- we so enjoyed our visit! Food was delicious! Staff were friendly and attentive. Highly recommend the rib-eye poboy special on Fridays! Catfish poboy, cheese burger poboy, onion rings, new potatoes and oysters were all delicious. Bread pudding was a great... More

We decided to visit Tarantos after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. BEST restaurant decision so far on this trip. I had snowcrabs. Hubby had surf and turf. Kids had shrimp and fish. All 4 of us were satisfied and full by the time we left. Also must try the bread pudding.

We went on a Saturday for lunch, it was busy but the orders came out slit faster than we thought and freshly made. My husband and I got the crawfish platters... 3lbs of crawfish with corn and potatoes, just the right amount. Service was very good!!

We split a pound of crawfish followed by boiled shrimp. Very fresh and well seasoned. Husband had a bacon cheeseburger Po-Boy. He liked that too and finished the shrimp that the other two of us couldn't. Be sure to ring the bell when you leave to let the staff know if you loved it.

We decided to come here since we were heading back home and had gotten turned down by a place in NOLA simply because we didn't want to leave our dog in the hot car, even though she would have been in a completely covered carrier. This place was on our route home, and allowed our dog so long as we... More

We were traveling from Florida to New Orleans and stopped for lunch at Taranto's because of previous reviews from tripadvisor. It was such an amazing food experience that on our way back to Florida we decided to stop there again. The crawfish is as fresh and tasty as it can be, the shrimp and crawfish bisque is to dye for...

Boiled crawfish were in season and were cooked to perfection! The wife had Po Boy with crawfish that was excellent as well. Good service, good food. Well done
