This is a great place to get po-boys. Area is not always safe but driving distance from french quarters. Not bad if you walk there during daytime but be careful at night. The po-boys are great as they are a local place to eat. Seating...More

Horrible customer service. Old ladies with no customer service skills. Food was mediocre. Our order was missing items and when we called she said you can come back and get it. No apologies or anything.

It's nothing fancy, but it's an awesome little place for a great, authentic po'boy. Try the hot sausage!

I enjoy the hot sausage and cheese plus your drink is included. The sandwiches are delicious and made to order.

This is my first authentic New Orleans po boy and it was underwhelming. The bread was dry, there was about 4 pickles on it. I just expected more. The fries have to be purchased separately and they cost $5. I would come back but not...More

Easy reach by trolley or walk this is one of the best in the city. Employees were great but there is limited seating area.

Don't waste your time here. Everyone says it's the best, take my word. Go to Melba's down the street. This place is dirty, no one is nice and the food was not good.

Not the best ambiance, but often a good dive is where the best food comes from. Had the catfish po boy and it was great. Tons of fish, flakey, hot with tarter. Great roll, delivered fresh every morning so I witnessed.

Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward,
the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely
residential. Of course, folks around here love to go
out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere
in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the
festivities, well then so much the better! Home to
some of the most revered live music venues in New
Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining
