What a great place. I had the half shrimp, half oyster po-boy. It was delicious. I preferred the shrimp but only slightly. The location is a ride from the French Quarter, but so worth the trip. I could type on, but you should just go!

The casual visitor to New Orleans will not stumble upon Domilise's while taking in the sights. You have to make an effort to get there. We took the St. Charles Avenue streetcar and still had to walk several blocks, although once there you're well placed for Magazine Street and the Garden District.

The roast beef PO-boy is to die for. I had read about it but hadn't visited on numerous culinary trips to New Orleans. Best in the city!

Although it is a little bit of a haul from downtown and the French Quarter, this is well worth the extra effort to get there. By far the best shrimp Po Boy I've ever had! The fries were also really good as well!

Best place in New Orleans for po-boys. Little hole in the wall, in uptown, but very worth the trip! Best!

Super cool and super small but totally worth it. If you can get a table before a crowd gets in even better. Bread is fresh, and the seafood is awesome. VERY friendly service. Nice local flair as well. Beer comes in these really cool "goblets". Miller high life - Champagne of beers. Totally worth it!! Highly recommend!!!

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighborhood Profile
Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the students living in the area ensure that Uptown and Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
