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.

This is my standard go to for Po Boys in New Orleans. I have had them all: Shrimp, Debris, Oyster, etc. You can not go wrong with this hole in the wall joint. From the ultra friendly cook staff to the ever grouchy bartender, I could not love this place more. Hint: get there as soon as it opens. Small... More

Perfect. Authentic. Grimey and divey. Highlife served happily. Goddam this is why I woke up at 4 am and flew to New Orleans for 2 days in March - such a needed escape from hellish nyc neverending winter!!! I rode a bike straight to Domilise's and thanked the sweet lord that it existed. The shrimp poboy, with beef gravy, sounded... More

Perfect dive bar, which serves expensive, but filling po' boys. Got the large shrimp po 'boy and the bread, the shrimp, everything was perfect. Yeah, I get that the place is expensive, but you're in New Orleans, to eat a po' boy. Live a little. Ray tending bar was also neat. Luckily we got there right when they were about... More

I'm so glad we finally got a chance to go to Domilise's, the poboys were definitely fantastic, as is the ambiance. However, for a fried oyster & fried shrimp poboy (6 in.), we paid $29. No regrets, just shocked at the price. Get there early, the line goes out the door and seating is quite limited!

I was in New Orleans for a week and ate at every Po Boy place I could. Johnny's, Parkway, Mother's, etc. and I must say I went to Domilise's twice in that week. There is just something about their Po Boy. A complex flavor in a shrimp Po Boy I haven't experienced elsewhere. It's a nice, quaint little place. not... More

Perfect dive bar with astounding Po-Boys. A little difficult to find parking nearby. The bread was perfect, the shrimp was freshly fried, the po-boy was wonderful. We will definitely go again the next time we are in NOLA.

What can I say...the BEST fried shrimp po-boy I've ever had. It's out of the way and a total hole in the wall place, but I would eat there daily if I could!! As a Verti Marte devotee, this was amazing in comparison. The wait can be long at lunchtime, but completely worth it!! Each sandwich is made up fresh... More

It's a way from downtown or French Quarter, but definitely worth it for a great po boy of fried seafood but also for their roast beef and a bottle of Barqs root beer. The parking is pretty limited in the neighborhood right next to the building. When you go through the front door, the menu is on the wall opposite... More
