The service was fast even though the line was long. We had about 15 people in front of us and still had our meal within 10 minutes. The food was so fresh and the flavor was amazing.

Great atmosphere, very courteous staff! My muffuletta was so good! The meat was so tender it was almost like butter! The Mac and cheese was also delicious! Tried the boudin and could have made a second order! Crave this place and will be back on my next trip to NOLA!

This is one of those places that both tourists and locals alike line up to get into. It lives up to the hype. It all starts when you walk in the door and take in the amazing smells from the house smoked and cured meats. You can be certain that everything on the board is delicious. Go soon after they...

I had gone to Cochon Restaurant a year earlier and had a top notch experience, so was eager to make it back to their deli/pub side called Butcher. I had the Buckboard Bacon Melt with a nice draught of Jack the Sipper ESB. What a great combo. The bacon was moist, flavorful, and plentiful sandwiched between nicely toasted slices of... More

I was facilitating a workshop near by and only had a little time for lunch. I had the pull pork bbq sliders and my wife had the Cuban sandwich. Both were good. I wanted to go back and try more options. I did have a side of macaroni and cheese. It wasn't as good as mine but it was nice.... More

I love a great muffuletta, and Cochon Butcher delivers! After years of Central Grocery, I may have a new muffuletta allegiance. This one is heated through, giving the bun just a little crunch on the outside. It's made with house made meats (after all this is a butcher) and olive spread and big enough to feed two. I don't know... More

I love me a good sandwich. And they deliver a DAMN good sandwich. So good, that I ate there twice during my recent visit. The first time I went in the evening and got a cubano for take out back to my hotel room. Sigh.... it was magnificent. So delicious... flavorful and moist without being soggy. The meat was clearly...

I visited Cochon Butcher twice during my week-long stay in New Orleans last fall. The Cuban was amazing, but the BLT was the best I've ever had. This is a great, quick, casual lunch spot.

First and foremost, these are TWO different places: a deli/pub on Andrew Higgins (Butcher) and a sit-down restaurant on Tchoupitoulas (Cochon). They are situated on two sides of the same street corner, but aside from common ownership and overall awesomeness, they have little in common. Butcher: this is the place you get your lunch from when you're stuck at the... More
