Just a bit down Jefferson Highway from the city limit, this 'hole-in-the-wall joint' is well worth the short drive for the famed oversized Poboy sandwiches and seafood platters. I loved my platter of fried oysters, skinny french fries and salad. I'm told the slow cooked...More

Coworkers rave about this place, so I thought I'd give it a try. Fairly small, which doesn't bother me, and usually means good service and better food. Sadly, I don't think this was the case. I had fried catfish, and the catfish came out soggy,...More

Not much on ambiance but the best sandwich I can ever remember. Only open for lunch and very limited seating. It will be my first stop next time I am in New Orleans.

After a grueling 8 hr. long drive to get to New Orleans, this was our first stop for a late lunch/early dinner. We were starved & I couldn't wait to try out the shrimp roumelade w/fried green tomato po boy. Okay, I was expecting the...More
