It was my daughter's 1st visit to New Orleans and she wanted to try a true po'boy sandwich. So like any millennial she plugged in a search & find into her android and came up with "Guy's as fav place to visit on the far end of wonderful Magazine St. This tiny little street corner of a box treasure looks...

My family ate lunch here when we took our daughter to Loyola. Expected a wait, but there was none. The employees welcomed us and seemed genuinely eager to please us. The food lives up to its reputation - we loved the shrimp po boy and rice beans and rice, but pralines were best of all! I paid $50 for lunch... More

Amazon poboys! Cash only tasted to fresh and tasty, it takes a minute so either call ahead or sit back and relax and enjoy the free smells. Cool staff, don't give them any sass!

We dined on fried shrimp po boys and roast beef po boys. The meat was freshly prepared and the po boys were very good. This is a small place, seats about 22 folks, and is on Magazine Street in NOLA. It has good atmosphere and you can grab your cold drink out of the case right there by the order... More

We had heard amazing things about Guy’s and purposely made our way to Magazine St. on the trolley to eat here. We knew the wait would be long, but we waited for over an hour. We tried to go in once, but the line was out the door so we walked around and came back about an hour later. We... More

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
