Worth the Trip

Domilise's is not in the French Quarter, but is worth a taxi or streetcar ride to get to. It's a small place, the po boys are delicious.

This place has probably been on every eating channel in the U.S. (and perhaps beyond) but that has had no affect on the food or the culture. Located in a nondescript corner building in the Uptown District, Domilise's has great po-boys made by great ladies. At 3:00 o'clock on a Saturday afternoon the place was packed. A line out the...

Included this stop on our walking tour of Magazine street. The hype is true - the poboys here are fantastic. Had the shrimp and the roast beef - definitely at or near the top in the city. Wait was long around 1:00 pm but well worth it. Very cool little place. Don't miss it if you are in the neighborhood.

Myself and my beautiful wife decided to take in New Orleans during Mardi Gras, and while there, wanted to have the best Po Boy in the city. Everyone has their favorite Po Boy, and favorite Po Boy restaurant to get it, but most answers were Domilise's Po Boy Restaurant. They are not wrong. Although difficult to get there without a...

I had lunch here today. I like the quaintness of the place. Clearly authentic, but let's not get carried away. It is a Po'Boy. The bread was not fresh, the shrimp was miniscule and the sandwich was, at the end of the day, just a simple po'boy. Nothing inspiring. Do not go out of your way to go there. If... More

With the certificates for New Orleans Best Po-Boy hanging on the wall, and a shared sink for the bathroom experience, this is not a four star restaurant. What Domilise's offers is genuine New Orleans style po-boys. And, they are wonderful. Try the roast beef with gravy, two kinds of mustard, and pickle. Make sure you have lots of napkins.

Great food, fun, friendly staff....plus Zapps! We came in for a fun, casual family lunch. Everyone tried different po-boys to share. There were five of us and no one was disappointed!

The best po-boys we've ever had! Ordered oysters and shrimp, very fresh and cooked after you order. Small hole in the wall, but worth it!

Love, love, love Domilise's. Been coming here for decades. May not live there anymore but always a must on any trip to Nola. Great fried shrimp, oyster, and roast beef po-boys. Atmosphere screams local. Big time local joint but also heavily populated by Tulanians. Time it just right or the wait can be a while. Nonetheless worth the wait once... More

My last visit was when I was a student at Tulane. It is still the same in decor. The only thing that has changed are the prices and the staff. Still the best Shrimp Po-boy dressed in the city.
