Great Po-Boy shop located in the garden district. Safe location and delicious food. If you are visiting New Orleans you need a shrimp Po-Boy before you leave. Eat outside if it's not too hot. If u want to appear local get a Barq's Root Beer with your shrimp Po-Boy. I also found the staff to be very helpful. Locals and... More

Just finished eating my small po'boy. Catfish crusted with zaaps crawTater potato chips and flash-fried perfectly, topped with pickled jalapenos and caramelized onion dressing. Great experience terrific. Service is great and fast. All of the portions look large and you will eat every bite. Full bar and craft beer top off the highlights. Must eats in NOLA.

My husband and I visited here on our last day and it was just ok. I'm from NOLA but wanted to do the tourist thing with him I've had better po boys. I had hot sausage and cheddar cheese and he had shrimp. The bread was too crunchy and I assume they toasted it, but there's no need to toast... More

We went here expecting to be amazed, and really weren't. Although the facility was interesting, a cute house with seating inside and out, the food was just ok. We liked the onion rings and the blood marys a lot, but the poboys were a bit dry, and lacked something.

Better than average but not at all as good as the PR and hype. The place is clean, the service is good and the food is good. I would say it's not great or exceptional but good. I did have some better tasting PO boys during my time in NOLA. So I would suggest you shop around if you want... More

Fun and informal in an old house on Magazine Street. I had the dressed roast beef poboy on Leidenheimer French bread. Simply the best.

Visited them on the recommendation of a local. Wasn't disappointed at all! Tried their catfish , shrimp and eggplant po'boys and they were all amazing! The 6 inch po'boys were good enough for lunch. The place has good cozy indoor and outdoor seating with a bar and really friendly staff.

Thank Syed Y

Staying in Garden District

Neighborhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
