Don't get me wrong Johnny's had a pretty good Po-Boy. I waited in line for one the day before I had one at Guy's. It's just that Guys was even better. He gives the option of grilled shrimp or catfish instead of fried and the shrimp kept falling off the bread, there were so many of them! The alligator sausage... More

Friendly staff, great food and right off the St charles streetcar line. Tiny little corner place with neighborhood character! We would go back again!

This is the first place we ate during our vacation and it really gave us a taste of what New Orleans is all about. We didn't test out a lot of Po' Boy places but this was the best one. I got the chicken special because I'm really picky about my seafood. It was really good but my wife got... More

If you are in New orleans NO ONE has a po-boy that is anywhere close to Guy's! It is worth a trek (take a cab, streetcar, or drive) if you are in the French Quarter. You have to venture out to Magazine Street for this to die for experience. Trust me. No one can match it! Guy's is a dive.... More

We've eaten here several times and have not been disappointed. They have daily specials as well as several varieties of po' boys. Their shrimp po' boys are delicious and loaded with shrimp. Good value. The surroundings are very spare; after all it's a neighborhood diner so...It's 8 blocks off the St Charles streetcar line (and 8 blocks back!) so you... More

Walking down Magazine Street in the Garden District, we happened to go by Guy's on the back end of lunchtime. Looked good from the outside, so we went in. Only a half a dozen tables, lots of people lined up at the counter in this little space. The menu had a lot of options to offer, and we decided on... More

The best Po-boy we had all week. Definitely off the beaten path...and we stuck out like a sore thumb (everybody knows a tourist, I guess),...but it was worth the trip.

Recommended by locals, this tiny restaurant is serving some true NOLA Po-Boys. Everyone is friendly and the service is fast. They are just open during the day (11am-4pm) but you won't be disappointed! Great locals stop when you are visiting the uptown.

We were sitting in the Camellia Saturday morning about 2:30, talking to our counter neighbor and they suggested Guy's. So Saturday lunch they we were. On advice we went to get a "Hangover Special" but couldn't find it on the menu. We asked the guy at the counter and he asked the cook who couldn't quite remember. But we were... More

Went here with my nephew who is a college student in NO. He was excited to offer an authentic taste of the city at Guy's. What a great call. I had a grilled shrimp po boy dressed with the works. When I picked up the sandwich, tasty grilled shrimp tumbled out like the progressive payout of the quarter slots at... More
