These sandwiches are huge and they only come in a whole unless you get a combo special. Two people with average appetites can share one. It is hot fresh and wonderful! A must try in New Orleans. The down side is it is very crowded and super hard to get a table. You order at the counter and wait for... More

There is a reason why the Food Network has been here. This was the best muffuletta I have ever had. I couldn't finish it, but I tried. Place was packed and it was cash only.

This place looks like a hole in the wall, but has delicious food!!! Extra seating in the back. Seafood platter for 2 people. Always get that and bring left overs to a homeless person on the street. Why not going to throw it away!

I've been trying to get a PoBoy from this place forever, it was worth the wait, the place itself could definitely use a make over, way to small for the number of people who come there, no organization in the kitchen, which is open and there is no organization with the staff or the order of which the po boys...

We went in on a Friday at 12:30. Place was packed. When we finally got our order, it was good as expected. Place is cash only and a walk up counter. They will call your number when your order is ready. There is some seating in front and in the back, but I'm betting most is takeout. We had two... More

Typical poor boys, good gumbo, but the servings were huge! Two people could have eaten one special and walked away full. Busy place, lots of seating in the back and upstairs, iffy sweet tea. Locals eat there.

So we were told by our tour guide that Johnny's had the best po boys in New Orleans. Since we were staying just one block away at the French Market Inn we decided to try it. It was very busy at the restaurant and space is limited while waiting for your order. Out selections included a shrimp po-boy, a catfish... More

Went here after reading rave reviews looking for the best Poboy in NOLA. Huge line when we walked in which was a good sign we thought. When we finally got to the counter, I looked over at the kitchen - which was filthy! My friend said ignore it, so I did. Ordered the shrimp and chicken tenders poboys and they... More
