Definately, not upscale!

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... read more

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

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.

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!
