Went to Mahony's based on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives visit. Had the fried shrimp po' boy which was excellent. The cochon sandwich was just okay; I did not like the sauce that the pork was cooked in - a bit sweet and vinegary. Service was good though.

It wasn't until after we left that we learned that Murphy's Po-Boys is listed on Diners Drives & Drive-Ins. But hype is not necessary to appreciate the food here. Fried oyster po-boy with bacon and cheese. The Peacemaker. Need I say more?

Mahony's used to be a great po-boy shop. Now the sandwiches are half the size they used to be and cost ten bucks. They actually charged me extra to dress the sandwich! If you aren't thrilled with the updated presentation, a sullen big-boned girl will tell you where you can get off. Great for the tourists who will eat anything... More

Ok, we were wrapping our week in NOLA on New Year's Day (slightly depressed), and our restaurants options were few. However, we found Mahony's on Magazine just as it opened for service. WOW!!! The staff was so welcoming. We ordered two poboys, fried oyster and fried shrimp, they were phenomenal and decently priced, unlike Domilise's (they're pricey, but good). The... More

After a long day walking up and down Magazine we were starvin' like Marvin. This cute little converted house-now-restaurant was convenient and an extremely good choice. My Peacemaker po boy ($21) was extremely good -- the fried oysters were perfect, the bread crunchy yet soft and chewy all at the same time, and the bacon and cheddar were delish on... More

Venture out of the French Quarter and go to Magazine Street, it will be worth it. Loved the roast beef po-boy, absolutely delicious! I want to go back next trip and try some of their other ones. Waitress was great. Best po-boys we had on the trip.

We visited this restaurant mainly because we take Guy Fieri's recommendations from Diners, Drive-Ins, & Dives when we travel. This place is small, clean, friendly and delicious!! We both got the Peacemaker po-boy, my husband got it with the fried oysters and I got it with fried shrimp!! The best po-boys we had eaten!! Also got loaded debris fries with... More

This place serves the ultimate poboy in the typical sort of New Orleans casual atmosphere. The excellent rating is based on the overall style of the experience, this is not fine dining but authentic New Orleans.

We had dinner at this cute po boy shop on Magazine after driving all day. It was so nice to sit down in the comfortable dining room and have a waiter serve us. The meal was wonderful yet so simple. I had a grilled shrimp with fried green tomatoes po'boy. It hit all the right spots and the romelaude sauce... More

You can't beat their well seasoned duck and sausage gumbo! I topped it off with a regular sized roast beef poboy and unbelievable onion rings. I drove back the next day from Baton Rouge to try their award winning poboy. I'll keep coming back! The service was excellent.
