Johnny's Po-boys Review

Strangely enough, good po' boys are hard to find in the French Quarter. Johnny's compensates for that scarcity with a cornucopia of overstuffed options, even though the quality can be inconsistent and the prices are somewhat inflated for the tourist trade. Inside the soft-crust French bread come the classic fillings, including lean boiled ham, well-done roast beef in garlicky gravy, and crisply fried oysters or shrimp. The chili may not cut it in San Antonio, but the red beans and rice are the real deal. The surroundings are rudimentary. Johnny's closes at 4:30 pm.

    Great sandwiches

    Eaten here before. The sandwiches at this place are awesome. However, my wife pointed out that if they received letter grades like here in NYC, place would be shut down. Servers were unkempt, place is small and dirty. Just be aware that this is not the Ritz.

    Johnny's Po-boys Review

    I stopped here to grab a quick bite before heading off to the airport. The service was incredibly quick.

    I ordered the shrimp po'boy, per an employee's recommendation. Glad I did. It was very good. Simple, tasty and satisfying. I would definitely go back to try a few different po'boys, as there are dozens to choose from!

    Johnny's Po-boys Review

    I ate an sausage, egg and cheese biscuit for breakfast here and I must say it was every bit as good as most more expensive places. It was cheap, fast and very good.

    Best in Town.

    My husband and I made it our mission to find the best Po'Boys in New Orleans, and after sampling MANY of them realized that Johnny's is simply the best. I will be back in May and eating there as often as possible. Keep in mind, it's only open from 9-3.
