This is a suprising good place to eat. We had the1/2 shrimp and Seafood Gumbo Combo. Both were very good.

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

My husband and I had the crab po boys Okay but nothing special. Others at our table commented grits were tasteless and fried green tomatoes all batter. Wish we’d gone elsewhere

It's all in the name... We tried a vast amount of po-boys that week and none matched this restaurant. It's small and fairly cheap but the best part for me was the bread..I loved them here.

This was the best po boy I have ever eaten. There were so many options your could get and they also offered many other local specialties.
