Yummy!

This little corner restaurant has only a few tables but we got our Po-Boys to go. We ordered the grilled shrimp Po-Boys and they were delicious! The 6-inch sandwiches are big :) and filling! There was a bit of a wait for our sandwiches but it was worth the wait!

This is what po boys are supposed to be. Let the tourists eat in the quarter. Guy's is on point! This was my first time here, but not my last.

Excellent po boy lunch. Try the fried chicken. They serve 6 or 11 inch sandwiches, and a 6 inch could probably feed two, unless you're really hungry.

We heard about this place through some nice folks at a recent visit to Tipitina's, who said it was the place they went when craving a "real po-boy", so we went. As we arrived we overheard someone say "I'm so sorry about this, but if you want a REAL NOLA po-boy..."so we learned a valuable lesson. Everyone has their own... More

We stumbled upon this gem through reading reviews of another Po-Boy shop. This one was recommended. The Po-boy was so delicious and tasty just like I remember. It's also good when eaten cold. I ordered the Shrimp Po-Boy and a praline. The Po-Boy was a little pricey, but it is definitely worth it. You won't regret it!!!

We got "the bomb" and it was THE BOMB! Best comfort food we've had in New Orleans! Bread was soft and thin, which I prefer to the thicker toasted French bread you find. Loved the grilled shrimp and catfish. Wonderful hole-in-the-wall place.

Returned here after being away 4 years to find Marvin still offering great PoBoys with a smile. His fiancé who took our orders is a sweetie with a smile to match Marvin's. Don't expect a lot of ambiance. Huge lunches and friendly patrons keep this place rockin. As you can see from other reviews, the Bomb is da bomb. Got... More

Don't let the outside, or smallish plain inside of this place fool you. The Po-Boys are incredible. Has to be one of the best I've ever eaten. We had grilled shrimp and fried catfish, and they were perfect. The shrimp was seasoned great, and the catfish was battered/fried perfectly. Bread was extremely fresh. The sandwiches were very large as well.... More

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighborhood Profile
Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the students living in the area ensure that Uptown and Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
