Needed a place close to Zephyr Park. Perfect location. And oh so good. Very reasonably priced. Quick service. Yummy. Very informal. Comfortable in shorts.

Best roast beef poboy in Metairie and competes with the best in New Orleans. It's a local favorite. The seafood poboys have begun to go downhill. Hopefully this local icon can remedy that.

"Dressed" means lettuce, tomatoes and mayo. The person who takes your order will be the person who gives you your order - so stand back and wait. You order your drinks at the cashier.

I consider myself a roast beef po-boy connoisseur. They have by far the best roast beef Po-Boys around. In fact this is the only place I will get a roast beef po-boy. I live in Florida, but whenever I an close by, I will drive out of my way for this po-boy.

Poboy was good, but nothing I hadn't had before. Awesome service, awesome sides, fast and hot, but the wow factor was just slightly gone for me. Not horrible at all, was actually good, but not a wow like I was hoping it would have been.

Had a large chicken gumbo and a diet coke. Best gumbo I had in Louisiana. Filling and good value. Lots of Po boy selection.

Can't go wrong with any poboys. My favorite is the roast beef dressed. They use the best bread. My husband loves the meatball with provolone. The poboys are even good heated up in the oven late at night. Play some video poker whole you wait. Friendly service..

A good po-boy can only be found in New Orleans. Trust me, I've looked. No frills here just a great sandwich...CUDOs!

I grew up going to Short Stop at least once a week. By far my favorite place to grab a roast beef Po-boy. King size is the way to go. Fond memories of my grandma and I talking over a Roast beef Po-boy and a cold barqs.

Thank andrew r
