It's just a quick trip from the airport and sooooo worth the stop. Your first oyster po' boy be sure to get extra mayo and pickles and fully dressed, and if they have soft shell crab, go for it! Yum yum yum yum on french bread. Eat in or take out. Delicious and I am a native of this city... More

This place was packed at lunch. My sandwich was pretty good, but lacked a bit of seasoning. I had it to-go and wished later on that I some hot sauce or something.

Just do yourself a favor and come here for all your po' boy needs. Seriously, no other po' boy compares to these amazing sandwiches. I had the shrimp, my husband had crawfish tails and my sister had the chicken salad and they were ALL AMAZING. It isn't even that expensive!!

For as many years as I can remember, every trip we made to New Orleans included a stop at the Parkway Bakery for a po'boy. During a recent visit, a friend took me to the Short Stop Po-Boys and I was impressed. I had the dressed roast beef and it was superb. Even though I also had one at the... More

Every time I visit home I have to stop if not once but twice at Short Stop! This is the best, messiest (and that is a good thing!) roast beef po-boy!

Do yourself a favor and eat here! Seriously, Short Stop has the BEST roast beef po-boys. I live out of state but have family in Metairie and Short Stop is a required stop every time I come back to town. Nobody does it better.

We ordered the King size Soft Shell Crab Poboy it was huge and loaded with crabs. It was very busy because it was lunch hour so there was no place to sit so we brought it home to eat . It was a bit pricy but worth it !

I had the roast beef one night and the shrimp the next. Both were perfect. Also had the jambalaya side once and enjoyed it. Great Po Boys.

If you like messy delicious Po-Boys you should go here. We typically get the 18" and split it 3 ways. It's located in a strange place Airline and Transcontinental but it's worth the time. The restaurant is VERY casual and always crowded. Great for lunch or dinner.
