I downloaded a walking tour of the garden district and this was one of the stops. We were disappointed to find that it was out of business. It is looked up tight with paper covering the windows and a for lease sign out from.

I love the atmosphere, love the people and enjoy every PoBoy I've ever had at this place. I will go back.....again and again. Do not miss this place, but don;t expect anything more than a "joint."

We stopped here on previous research done from another visit. We had just finished a walking tour of the garden district and this place was the closest and I knew it had pretty good reviews. We were in a little rush so I didn't look over the menu as well as I should have but I wasn't disappointed. The sandwiches... More

We came here for lunch after our tour of the Garden District based on reviews on Yelp. We were not disappointed. The roast beef with gravy po'boy, muffaletta, and Cuban were delicious lunch options.

Very upset they messed up my sandwich which was also very messy to eat. I give this a 3 because despite the... More

This is a great little spot to grab a good lunch. You can't go wrong with any of their sandwiches. If you're strolling around the Garden District, you can't miss it!

The exterior is a one of a kind. It has the appearance of a funky, local, weathered, old, artsy place that gets you wondering if its a place that should be torn down or just funky New Orleans. End up its a local deli with a few tables. You won't visit a place like this again. They have great lunches... More

We stopped here for lunch after waking through the garden district. It's a cute spot with a variety of sandwiches. We were easily able to share because they were all pretty big. They had a variety of bottled sodas that made it fun for the kids! The staff was very friendly. I would definitely recommend it!

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.
