Could be the best Po-Boy in New Orleans

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... read 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

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
