If you want a truly delicious roast beef Po-boy, look no further than Short Stop on Transcontinental Drive in Metairie La. The beef is cut into pieces without any fat or gristle which makes for easier digestion and the gravy has a wonderful flavor with...More

Sandwiches are good, prices are fair - service is fast and courteous. I usually get a sandwich here about once or twice a month - always good.

These may not be the absolute best poboys in town but they are darn good and a great value. I picked up several 14"-ers on the way home the other night to share with the family. All (meatball, roast beef, ham & swiss) were great,...More

Local favorite. Lots of menu options - all reasonably priced. Roast beef on French w cheese is a consistent winner. I get a po boy, chips and drink for same price as Subway. Gets busy around lunch, but never chaotic.
