Came into town for business and always venture out to local places that weren’t around before we moved. This is a neighborhood gem and a must. The service was excellent and the food was amazing. I’m very picky with my roast beef poboy and this...place nailed it. I liked it better than Parkway. Just an overall great experienceMore

Wow! What a gem of a restaurant! Avery’s of Tulane arguably serves the best food in New Orleans and serves up the best gumbo and po-boys that I have tried. My wife and I recently visited for lunch and started our meal with a Peachy...Bourbon Lemonade. This mixed drink was nicely sweet, refreshing, and boozy. Next we shared the phenomenal and addictive Seafood Gumbo: the best I have ever tried. The gumbo was rich, flavorful, and briny with a lightly spicy kick, filled with tender shrimp and oysters, and topped with savory rice. Afterwards we had a pair of the best Po-Boys we have ever tried: the Buffalo Shrimp Po-Boy and The Sandbag Po-Boy. Both po-boys had perfectly soft toasted bread. The Buffalo Shrimp was filled with a mountain of tender shrimp marinated in flavorful buffalo sauce and mixed with rich creamy blue cheese crumbles and topped with crisp shredded lettuce and juicy sliced tomato. The Sandbag Po-Boy was filled with rich, tender and juicy roast beef, crisp and tangy fried pickles, melty provolone cheese, and topped with a creamy horseradish sauce. Avery’s on Tulane is now one of those places I will need to visit every time I go to New Orleans. Do not miss out on this phenomenal spot.More

Got there the first time for (our) breakfast though it was lunchtime. Got guided through their menue and settles for the Poo Boy "The Sandbag". Just loved the deep fried pickled gurkins. Great choice for my breakfast. The other side of the table had Blackened...Shrimp Alfredo wand was happy but not overwhelmed with the flavours. I personally don't think that the presentation was to its favour. Came back for proper lunch a day or two later and dug into the seafood platter and some Gumbo. The garlic bread was one of the best we've ever had. It was all very nice. The oysters, prawns and the catfish had a lovely thin and crispy batter. Yum, yum, yum. The staff made the visit complete. So very sweet and helpful. Really nice to be away from all the noice in the city center.More

First time visiting NOLA so watched Triple D’s episode on New Orleans. Unfortunately, they were out of the oysters when I got there late in the afternoon. However, the deep fried potato salad didn’t disappoint and the buffalo shrimp po boy was delicious. Just the...right amount of heat balanced by the bleu cheese. Staff there are great!More

Good lunch food or quick grab. We tried the oysters Rockefeller po’ boy which was delicious and creamy. The BBQ shrimp po’ boy left a little to be desired. It was good, but the shrimp was a little strong tasting. The fried potato salad is...a unique spin on the original. We did enjoy our meal however and would visit again to try maybe the buffalo shrimp instead.More

Unfortunately for me, my first time here was after my 30th birthday night, when I could barely walk and nearly vomited several times just looking and smelling the food of this place. Don't let that dissuade you though, Im a dangman wreck of a human....I took my food home once it was clear I couldn't eat it. I had a spicy sausage po'boy which was dynamite, full of flavor and really hit the spot. In addition, we shared the gumbo which I managed to get down despite myself. The gumbo was excellent, I really wish I could import it abroad to Europe. The staff was super friendly and very understanding of my condition. A lovely place, mostly local with fair prices. I would recommend it to anyone.More

The food is what I complimentary call junk food, plenty of well seasoned perfectly fried seafood and PoBoy sandwiches. The fried potato salad and Honey Biscuit dessert are worth the trip. The fried oyster Poboy with roast beef gravy is unusual and really good. Next...time I am in NOLA I will try againMore

My Husband and were in search this Saturday afternoon for a good Poboy Sandwich. As we rode around 8th Ward New Orleans, I remembered to search Trip Advisor. The name Avery's on Tulane presented with high ratings and I had passed name Avery's on the...street several times, but never seen the actual building. My Husband ordered the Red Beans and Pork Chop. He says the beans has their own flavor prepared with ham an sausage. The Breaded Pork Chop was tender center cut with a certain seasoning that I could not say what it is. Not the usual flavor of Creole, Italian or French, but it was tasty. The Hamburger on Poboy prepared medium well, Dressed with Lettuce and Tomatoes with mayonnaise on both sides of bread with Sweet Potato fries was good. The Hamburger is really handmade and charcoal grilled to perfection. Well, although the style of seasonings were not Creole, Italian, or French, it was truly American, and it did taste good enough to return to Avery's. The Gumbo is prepared with a very dark roux, with ingredients of shrimps, oysters, crab claws, and sausage. Not the Creole gumbo flavor of New Orleans, but it was tasty. It had the flavor of maybe crawfish bisque roux. It was tasty enough to order again. So you all trek into Tulane Avenue to try this twist in American delicacies!More

Went here on a rainy Thursday afternoon. It is a bit out of the way, but worth finding. I had the Oysters Rockefeller poboy. Fried oysters covered with creamed spinach, on french bread. Awesome. Fried potato salad was a fun appetizer. My friend got the...debris poboy with provolone, fried pickles and horseradish sauce. Service was good as well. I will be back on a future rip to New Orleans.More
