PO-BOY HEAVEN!!!

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

Family lunch for four during a walk along Magazine Street. Loved the Po'Boys. Place was crowded and took a little while to get our sandwiches, but it was worth it.

Everything recent reviews have said is true. It is just that a po-boy is nothing but a sandwich on a half baguette with mayo, lettuce, tomato, and stuffed with whatever meat or fish you order and hot sauce if you want it. OK, Guy's are very, very fresh---made to order right in front of you. But it still just a... More

Ok, we only had po'boys 3 times, and they were all good, but Guy's was the best. The decor is lacking, and there aren't very many seats, but the food comes fast and it's very tasty.

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
