An unpretentious restaurant, serving some of the best po-boys around, and they are huge. Two will easily feed three people for lunch. A massive menu of every type of filling and friendly staff. It is very popular but don't give up if the queue is big, the service is quick. Cash only here, no cards.

Had the shrimp po boy and it was good. The place accepts cash only. Place is always busy, but more seating in the back and they call your number order when your food is ready. Bathrooms are easy accessible. My fiance had the chicken parmigiana po boy and he enjoyed it. A place to go for lunch. Nearby some great shopping places.

We had a shrimp po-boy, an aligator po-boy and the gumbo bowl. Everything was really tasty and full-filling, I definitely recomended. They have really good portions.
It gets really busy and the lines can be big but it's worth waiting, and they are also really fast.
The only negative part is that it's hard to find places to seat.

Visited this place many times over a two week period (around the corner from our hotel). Although it gets very busy (as it is so popular) the staff were always cheery and friendly and the food was great - would highly recommend it.

If you’re in the French Quarter and looking for a po boy, go to Johnny’s. You will not be disappointed. Subs are HUGE, if you’re hungry eat one all by yourself. If not, get one to share. We had the catfish and the roast beef one. Both were excellent, but I think the roast beef one has more flavor. If you’re trying it for the first time, order the roast beef.
Accepts cash only.
