I love the breakfast burritos! The price is just right as well! Cash only but you won't need a lot. Fried green tomatoes are great too!

My husband and I shared the chicken tenders meal. It was enough for the two of us to share. It came with several tenders, fries, bread, and a small shredded lettuce salad with tomato and pickle. I made a chicken sandwich out of the bread,...a tender, and the salad. The food took a little while, but it was worth it for the price compared to all the expensive places around.More

Wanna try some real Po-Boy selections? Gotta go here! My favorite was the red beans and rice with sausage! Next time I will try it with the pork chops! Great service!

Combo Special is 10$. Gumbo or RBR and PoBoy (Roast Beef or Shrimp). Small Dining Room with seating in the back. Order at the Counter and CASH ONLY. Check hours and the location is easy to find. Grilled Muffuletta is my favorite but I have...eaten Pancakes and Eggs and is great. The food at this location is superior.More

This little, old sandwhich shop was a very pleasant surprise! Just around the corner from the French Market Inn. We were looking for a quick breakfast bite close to our hotel, before heading off for planned tours for the day. I happened to look diwn...St Louis St and see a sing that said breakfast. So Glad I noticed. This place reminds me of the old lunch counters in downtown Chicago. Nothing fancy but really, great, cheap food! Breakfast soecials and breakfast sandwhiches. Then for lunch some of the Best... Muffuletta, Po Boy sammys and burgers EVER! Gotta say right up there with Central Grocery. If youre on a budget, this place is great. A few tables and carry-out avail.More

Food is great and so are the people that work there.Friendly and hard working. This is not a fancy place but a small place close to the French Market Inn to get a great breakfast, lunch or dinner. The meals have a diverse selection. We...have done breakfast and lunch there and have never been disappointed.More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living

around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
