Did this as part of the Taste of New Orleans Tour. It is on the other side of Canal street from the French Quarter. Serving New Orleans for over 50 years, owners Jack and Mike Serio serve up their generations-old Muffaletta recipe. This NOLA-style Italian sandwich layers Italian meats, cheeses and a special olive salad on Sicilian bread. Their specialty... More

Not a big meat fan, but the roast beef po boy- wow. We had it on our taste bud tour. Their food is inexplicable, just go there and get one.

Went here as part of The Tastebud Tours and had never had a muffaletta before. The muffaletta had a great flavor, but, I felt that there was a little too much bread and that the sandwich could use some more olive spread. Nice casual place and I would definitely come back for a solid, muffaletta.

I went there by chance to experience po boys. It looked like a clean place. I ordered a catfish po boy which was great and I received it quickly. Many others starting coming in. Each got their orders quickly. One man got the wrong order and went to the counter to tell them. The owner turned to the server and... More

We were there for a quick lunch, and service was fast. Food--very good. My husband had the beef & ham , I had to have a fried oyster sandwich. Large potion, we finished the second half on the plane home that night. One suggestion, if ordering the oysters, the plate lunch s probably a better choice. Not as much thick... More

We were looking forward to trying a muffuletta while in New Orleans and this place knocked it out of the park. This was our first stop on our Taste the Town tour and loved every bit of each layer this massive sandwich has to offer. The food, service, and the owners hospitality were all top notch. Definitely recommend!

I really wanted to like the muffaletta! I ordered it with the best of intentions. Unfortunately, I am not a fan. It was a lot of bread and a lot of olive salad... Others with me loved it and it was to their liking. But personally I like the meat to be the star of the sandwich. The atmosphere was... More

We stayed across the street from this place and with rain threatening, looked it up and discovered Bobby Flay did a throwdown here! Excited we went in and waited in line, there was also a food tour that started there so we were even more intrigued. I ordered the fried Oyster poboy and my wife ordered a half a Muffaletta... More

The po-boys were great. I had the catfish and it was awesome! My wife and daughter had turkey and loved it. Even my picky 4 year old are all of his grill cheese.

We stopped in here on an excellent food tour (Tastebud Tours) and had a HUGE muffaletta that was absolutely delicious. So fresh, so delicious and oh my gosh we got so full. Definitely the best muffaletta in NOLA, also the original place that made it! It is so good it beat Bobby Flay in a throw down!
