Wanted a late lunch close to our hotel on the afternoon we arrived in NOLA and managed to make it to Johnny’s before they closed at 3:30. Great roast beef po’boy and muffuletta, albeit a bit messy to eat. Super friendly staff.

I debated giving this 3 or 4 stars. I have been in Memphis and New Orleans for 5 days and now had 3 Po Boys and the ones at Jonny’s are the best I have had. I though keep trying them as a local dish...and honestly I still do not get them. Are they a nice sandwich? Yes! Does that justify the 15+ dollars price tags? No! I have decided I must be missing something but I m unlikely to try any more. What I would say though is the Alligator Sausage is beautifully seasoned and really good, so if you are coming to this place definitely get some sausage.More

We have been wanting to spot here for our last few visits. Finally did, and it was worth it. Great po boys. The debris fries are outstanding. Everyone was friendly, and the service was great. I highly recommend it.

There isn't alot of seating, but my husband picked up breakfast and brought it to our hotel which was just around the corner. It is closed a couple of days mid week so check their web site first. Also one of the few reasonable priced...places in the french quarterMore

Fun fact: No where, ANYWHERE, except the front door of this place does it say they are closed Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. Made the trip all the way out because people were raving about this joint… 😖

Agree 100% with Montanapescado review. Classic but average at best. Super crowded. Tables not clean if you can even find one. Long line. Way too much bread, not enough flavor. Pricey for greasy counter style food. Wanted to love it because its iconic.

This is a very New Orleans po boy experience, so a decent stop to try the local signature sandwich. Holding back the rating is that there was too much bread in the roll and too much breading on the seafood. It just tasted like lots...of starch, which is why I doused mine in hot sauce.More

The staff that took our order was really kind. The wait was not long. Two things that knocked the rating down to 2/5 stars. First, the air conditioner spits water, so sit far away from it. Otherwise you’ll have AC water on you and on...your food. Second, if you like your shrimp deveined… this is not the place for you. Your shrimp will be fried with vein and all.More

Stopped here twice for breakfast. Had a breakfast sandwich and an omelet, both were excellent. Very informal place with counter service and cash only. A little piece of the old New Orleans before restaurant chains

We tried the shrimp and oyster poboys fully dressed. We also had the jambalaya. The poboys were not as good as some of the other places we tried. The sandwiches were very doughy. Overall, it’s a decent place for poboys. Jambalaya was very good though....Be prepared to wait.More

I had the half and half shrimp / oyster po boy. Service was pretty quick even though the place was very crowded. I’ve had many sandwiches in my day and this was the best! Perfectly cooked seafood. Tons of lettuce tomatoes pickles and mayo. I...would travel to NOLA just for this sandwich. By the way it’s huge !More
