This place is small but well worth the wait. There are tables in the back so check it out before waiting on front table. We had Johnny's Special and Shrimp Po-boy. Both were great. They are huge! I shared one with my 12 year old...More

Wow! We just got to town and looking for a place to eat...too early for burger, too late for breakfast? We came across Johnny’s and after spending 10 minutes deciding (the menu includes an eclectic mix and is very large), I decided on the Bayou...More

The shrimp and oyster po boys were decent. The seafood was good but sandwiches could have used more dressing. The air conditioner leaked on our table. No atmosphere but it’s just a lunch place. Getting a table is hit or miss.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
