I've been a couple times and it's a treat each time I've gone. I've tried both the fried shrimp and hot sausage po-boy and both are excellent. My only complaint is that I wish they were open longer during the week or weekend so that...More

Small place. Guy makes the po boys himself and they are delicious. Walk to Audabon park afterwards to see the tree of life and the labyrinth

Allow me to begin with the cons: 1) long wait to get the food ( I was there at 2 and I still waited for about 10-15 minutes); 2) lack of seating and they don't clean the tables, I had to do the latter; 3)...More

This place charges $11 for a 'small' shrimp sandwich the size of my arm. I would have happily paid $6 for a sandwich half the size. The bread was fresh, as was the lettuce. The shrimp was pretty average and tasted kind of low quality...More

Each visit to New Orleans always includes a visit to Guy's. We usually order 2 Po boys to go. Each one is large enough to share! The shrimp Po boy (fully dressed) is our favorite--overflowing with perfectly fried shrimp. There are a few tables inside...More

I have been going to Guy’s for 18 years and they have never disappointed. I keep trying shrimp po boys around the globe. Nothing has ever come close to Guy’s. The shrimp are large, perfectly seasoned and fried to a golden crust of thin cornflour....More

We highly recommend this place. The food is delicious and portions are very generous. The chicken po boy with Canadian bacon was excellent! Prices are very reasonable and the place is immaculate. Servers very friendly. Be advised - cash only.

Guy's was great - good food, fast, and a neighborhood spot. I only wish they took credit cards and it wasn't cash only!

If you are looking for a great sandwich and takeout place I strongly recommend Verti Marte on Royal street. But, if you want the best PoBoy in New Orleans you need to travel out to Magazine street for Guy's Poboys. The bread is Leidenmeister of...More

Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the
students living in the area ensure that Uptown and
Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly
fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife
and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s
