A family member lived in New Orleans for many years and tried evey po-boy place in the area and declared this one to be the best and they are so right. It had been ten years since I had had an oyster po-boy from Frankie and Johnny's and I dreamed about the day I would get to return. This past... More

Took out of town family there to experience a local neighborhood place. My relatives were impressed with everything and enjoyed a great away-from-the Quarter dining experience. My suggestion to venturesome visitors is to ask for neighborhood suggestions rather than the "tried and true" tourist-oriented placed downtown.

We drove through NO on our family trip and was so happy to find Frankie & Johnny's! We were looking for Po' Boys when we did a search and this place was highly recommended - and we were not disappointed! We ordered the shrimp po' boy, fried shrimp plate, roast beef po' boy (husband loved this!) and the rice and... More

We stopped here on our way out to the airport. I am glad we made the detour. Service was fast and friendly. The price was reasonable. I ordered a box for the plan. Ask for plastic utensils.

Horrible service with under seasoned food. A group of 8 of us went to Franky and Johnny's. We were seated within a half hour which was fine given that we wanted to sit together. We ordered a couple half sandwich and gumbo combos, a few bowls of gumbo and their special of the day shrimp étouffée. We waited over an... More

If you want to get away from the French quarter and where all the locals go...this is it!!! Amazing poboys, gumbo and cajun balls! Service was awesome. Highly recommend!

Fresh Oysters, crawfish and beer on a sunny afternoon. The oysters could not have been prepared any better and the crawfish was just perfect. The super friendly staff took good care of us. We enjoyed the outside seating and the afternoon sun. A great place to take a break from your busy day.

This is a neighborhood restaurant/bar that has been a staple in uptown for years. it closed in the Fall of 2012 because the owners had let the place go. They stripped the walls down to the studs, cleared it out, and then sold it to these two friends and business partners. Woody is one of the new owners. Very nice,... More

I went to New Orleans for the Wrestle Mania 30 and visited this restaurant. I ordered a PoBoy Shrimp and was not that impressed with the meal. The meal was lukewarm and not a real satisfying taste. I would not order the sandwich again nor visit the restaurant. The customer service was good and the staff was friendly. I also... More
