I love po-boys and wanted to try this place despite the mixed reviews. I wish I had a more positive review but the sandwich we had was lacking. The one good thing I can say is that the sandwiches are large, my boyfriend and I...More

Stumbled in to this place by accident. Sure glad we did! It was the best po-boy we ate our entire trip... And, trust me, I OD'ed on po-boys in NOLA. Order the shrimp for sure. I asked the girl working the counter and it seemed...More

Johnny's po-boys is definitely a New Orleans gem. I went twice during my recent trip - first for a crawfish poboy and second for the muffuletta. What's great about Johnny's is that they're not trying to be anything special, they know exactly what they are....More

If the lines at Cafe du Monde are blocks long, check out this place for breakfast. Great coffee. Grilled biscuits (yum). Really low prices with nice-sized portions. Good, basic food. We found it based on the recommendation of a local. It's a hole-in-the-wall, and seating...More

Visited Johnny's May 9 due to a recommendation from a carriage driver. He said the place had the best Po-boys. Not sure what planet he is living on. The sandwiches were a huge disappointment as was the atmosphere of the small restaurant. The man taking...More

We ordered one shrimp po-boy and a combination seafood platter. The portion size and taste was quite good. But the place was packed for a weekday lunch time.

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
