Cochon Butcher is worth the wait

This place is delicious - we walked over from our hotel and had to wait inline 15-20 minutes but it was SO worth it! We ordered the Cubano to share as well as sides of potato salad and coleslaw...one of the best meals I've had and my favorite from the trip. Also had an awesome draft beer selection.

Cochin butcher was one of the best finds on my trip to New Orleans. It was filled with people - but it was totally worth every minute fighting for a spot to sit down. I had the muffuletta sandwich and the grilled pimento cheese sandwich to split with my party. The muffuletta was delicious - every type of meat in... More

The pulled pork sandwich was the BEST - we loved this meal...had as a takeaway and ate on the drive to the Air Boat Tour. A MUST!

This place is great. Delicious sandwiches and bar fare around the around the convention center. This is real food. Home made chips, fresh cut charcuterie, great spreads, a fantastic bar, and fast service. I enjoyed my BBQ pork sandwich, a hot dog, the Pig Mac, and the turkey sandwich. Everything looked great. This place is not to be missed.

We ate lunch at The Butcher while visiting the WWII museum. It is located about two blocks down from the museum. It was a great luncheon spot for sandwiches. You place your order at the counter and then your meal is delivered to your table. It is a casual deli atmosphere with a busy bar. Dining is inside and there... More

We've eatten at Cochon and Cochon Butcher is a more relaxed bar type atmosphere. By far food is just as good, sandwiches and salads. I had the mini pulled pork sandwiches, really really good, pared with some chopped pickle. I'm not a pickle person and they balanced out the sandwich nicely. The bacon favorites sandwich there was better than I... More

I have been here twice on my business trips to New Orleans and have never been disapointed. Their sandwiches and sides are fresh and taste delicious.

I've been here about 8 times, and never had a bad meal. It used to be quite cozy and a little claustrophobic at times, but since they've expanded (and added the bar area) it's really a great eating experience. Their muffaletta is one of the best (a little on the small side as one person can eat a whole one),... More

At 2:30 on a Tuesday, I still waited in a line of 10 people to order. As other reviews indicated the wait was short and the food came right away. I tried the Gambino sandwich, Mac & Cheese and homemade potatoe chips. Everything was superb. There is a open style lunch room with several bar height tables inside surrounded by... More
