Huge sandwiches. Don't believe it when the menu says "small". It is, though, a small space with only a couple of tables so don't expect to linger. It's a take out joint. As mentioned by others, it's cash only and they close at 4PM. We...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!

I live next door and probably eat Guys @ least 1x/week. Food is delicious and kitchen staff are genuine as it gets. Obviously famous for Po boys but it's the pralines that get me every time! Cash only spot but there is an ATM inside.

My family all met in New Orleans from different parts of the US and found this place through online search as driving through garden district. This place makes your heart hurt when you live out of state and can't eat here often. They give you...More

Guy's is a 5 table with superior food. Roast Beef or Shrimp po-boy or maybe a sausage and crawfish po-boy which was the special the day my family ate. Service was quick and the half or whole po-boy was generous portions. This is a very...More

There is nothing pretentious about Guy's. It is what it is. A poboy dive with a menu dedicated to the usual offerings. Even though it looks a bit fancier since the remodel after a car crashed through the front it still has that neighborhood charm....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
