The food is OK, but too expensive for what you get. And they only take cash. There was not a long line, but there was another time that we walked by. Not much seating either.

We came down to New Orleans for a long fun weekend and had to stop by Johnny's for lunch on Saturday. The line was a little long but it was worth the wait. I had the chicken parm and my buddy Chris has the shrimp...More

If you're in the French Quarter you've got to stop at Johnny's po-boys..they have a huge variety of sandwiches and muffalettas..there is an extra seating area in the back. Restaurant can easily get crowded which is a sure sign that the food is great.

People raved about these po boys and they weren't bad but certainly not legendary. We waited in line for 30 minutes and then got 2 sandwiches and a bowl of gumbo for lunch and paid $40! Then we waited for another 30 minutes for our...More

I came here on a recommendation and I'm glad I did. It's worth the try for a what I would say is a traditional, nothing fancy po-boy. I had the catfish po-boy. It was fresh, hot and fried perfectly with mayo, lettuce and pickle.....traditional fixings...More

Not worth the wait. Very slow and making the sandwiches in the seating is terrible. You certainly don't want to have to fight for a seat.. if you're going to get one get only a half a po boy.

Grabbed lunch here today and couldn’t have been happier. My husband had a toasted muffuletta and said it was great and I had the judge bosetta which was so flavorful. Loved it, and will definitely return.

A busy spot, we went late afternoon mid week and the place was still packed, though we did get a table. I went in knowing I wasn't a huge fan of poboys, but wanted to try an authentic one. It was good, but again it's...More

super crowded and noisy, but the food was good, we had catfish po'boys and the seafood gumbo.......reasonable prices if you can take the mayhem, the place is quite small

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

Ugg. They need to get rid of the styrofoam in their restaurant. Not environmentally friendly. 😟
