While I'm not an actual fan of Po'boys, I really enjoyed the shrimp poboy I had at guy's. Bring cash as it's cash-only. Order the half sandwich because it's huge huge huge. The lady at the counter is amazing! It was fascinating watching her take customer orders, work with the chefs, answer phone calls and deliver food ( and I'm... More

The roast beef was excellent. Very juicy and messy, as a po-boy should be. My husband is from New Orleans and we can't wait to get a po-boy every time we come to visit. This is our new favorite and we will be back.

So good. The place is definitely a local dive type restaurant. But the po boys are to die for. You must go check it out when in Nola. We tried 3 different ones and they were all amazing.

One of my favorite po-boy in NOLA. I love their shrimp po-boy where they use fresh shrimps, lightly breaded and fried just enough to stay tender and juicy. The sandwiches are seriously loaded with shrimp and the shrimps are amazing! Don't go there for the decor, go there to pick a po-boy to go!

This little corner restaurant has only a few tables but we got our Po-Boys to go. We ordered the grilled shrimp Po-Boys and they were delicious! The 6-inch sandwiches are big :) and filling! There was a bit of a wait for our sandwiches but it was worth the wait!

This is what po boys are supposed to be. Let the tourists eat in the quarter. Guy's is on point! This was my first time here, but not my last.

Excellent po boy lunch. Try the fried chicken. They serve 6 or 11 inch sandwiches, and a 6 inch could probably feed two, unless you're really hungry.

We heard about this place through some nice folks at a recent visit to Tipitina's, who said it was the place they went when craving a "real po-boy", so we went. As we arrived we overheard someone say "I'm so sorry about this, but if you want a REAL NOLA po-boy..."so we learned a valuable lesson. Everyone has their own... More

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.
