Many people in New Orleans will tell you this is the best po-boy place in town. It is very crowded (we were lucky to get a place at the bar for lunch on Good Friday), very casual. Considering how busy they were, our service was prompt. The shrimp po-boy was tasty and loaded with shrimp. Was it the best in town? I dunno. I've been eating po-boys all my life, and in my experience if the bread is good (and it is here) and the filling is generous then it's hard to screw up a po-boy. Honestly, you can get a po-boy just as good at many, many other places in town. That said, these are very good.

Very casual place that is super popular. Any kind of poor boy sandwich is available. Food plentiful. Prices reasonable. I tried the fried shrimp poor boy, my very first & it was loaded with shrimp. For you Northerners, kind of like a grinder/sub sandwich. On weekends, lines can be ling, but moves quickly.

The po-boys here are some of the best in the city. They are over stuffed on crispy french bread. We were there Sunday afternoon and they only offer oyster po-boys one day during the week. The roast beef and shrimp po-boys were delicious!! We got the bread pudding and banana pudding for dessert. The bread pudding was wonderful! The banana pudding was good but a little too sweet for me.

A very old restaurant & bar located in a "mid-city" neighborhood. On street parking. Just a short hop from downtown N.O. Could take the Canal streetcar & walk app.4-6 blocks. Orleanians have eaten here for 70 or more years. Let's say "It's where the YATS are at." :-)) (I'm one!)
The poboys are exactly what New Orleans poboys should be...esp.the roast beef. The bread is perfection, the roast beef & gravy are delicious, the portions are enormous. My family started going here in the 50's & the bread & the roast beef were wonderful back then. Beers, spirits are available but you should try a Barq's rootbeer. After dining here, you don't need to eat the remainder of the week--but then you're in N.O.where cuisine is too good to miss even one meal!

Go to the parkway for the best poor boys. We had the corned beef with Swiss cheese, alligator sausage, and the banana pudding. All were very good
