While sampling all the offerings of the unique culinary experience of New Orleans, you have to have a po- boy. But be brave- it's not for the delicate of appetite. We ordered an assortment from the specials and my "seafood Special" was a massive pile of perfectly fried shrimp and catfish on a soft white roll with chunky tartare sauce... More

I don't really like seafood, but this is the one place I will eat anything on the menu. Do not be discouraged by the smallness of the restaurant. A favorite by many true New Orleanians.

We had the famous po' boy in several different places in New Orleans. Guy's sandwiches definitely rank number one. Service was great. The shop is very small and they get quite busy at lunch. So beware and try to come before or after. But definitely do come. It is a must when visiting this City. And it is cash only.... More

We came to Guy's with our two kids. We were deciding between Mahony's and Guy's (hadn't been to either), and we chose Guy's based on Trip Advisor recs. Not sure it was worth the long taxi ride (which then had us walking a long way to get to the shopping we wanted to do on Magazine). The restaurant is small,... More

When I think of a poboy... This is what I have in mind. We shared a fried shrimp and a roast beef... Both delicious!

The grilled shrimp Po-Boy was absolutely out of this world. Perfectly seasoned, paired with delicious pickles and mayo. The bread was copious, but just the right balance to the salad. Overall, deliciously simple yet sophisticated. Location is simple, but definitely has character. Well worth the trip from the French Quarter. Come one, you can even take the street car!

Tried Guy's based on some reviews and lists. It's quite far from the French Quarter if you are staying there. Not a bad thing - but the po-boys were not worth a $25 cab ride. We should have been tipped off when our cab driver thought we were crazy (he did recommend Jacques Imo's and i do want to try... More
