“Grilled Shrimp Po-boy!”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

I don't have much more to say. I ordered the grilled shrimp Po-boy and it was great. The sandwich was large, inexpensive, and had just the right amount of toppings and seasoning.

It's a very casual, walk-in, order-at-the-counter, seat-yourself type place, and the service was fast.

“The true Po-boy”
Reviewed December 14, 2012 via mobile

After 2 messy bites you know you're in the right place. I had the best shrimp po-boy of my life. Fully dressed, loads of shrimp, great bread and huge! A large could feed 2! Definitely a landmark of New Orleans. I will always go back.

“Best po boys EVER!”
Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

Don't leave New Orleans without having one of their po boys. The bread is perfect. It isn't thick, it's soft & has a nice crunchy crust. I had the shrimp & catfish and was very happy.

“Shrimp and catfish po boy - oh my!”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

Friendly, neighborhood feel. We were sitting among lots of locals and few tourist. Guy and his two sons (?) along with another gentleman have the place packed at lunch time. Guy went out of his way to engage us in conversation despite being busy. Many people came in, saw the crowd and left....sad for them, but I guess they live there and can come back any time they want! You have to wait a while for your food to be prepared, but oh, it is so worth the wait! I cannot wait to go back and share another one!

“Best Po-Boys”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

They have the best Po-Boys I've had. The bread isn't thick which is how I like po-boys!! Some places you go have such thick bread that that's all you get in your po-boy. Well Not here!! They only accept cash (and checks). Only about 5 tables for seating, but it's worth it!
