A "dive" that serves great local food at a very reasonable price. Most of the people eating here are local. We had po-boy sandwiches that were absolutely superb. Both the fried oyster and shrimp sandwiches were filling. We ordered 8" sandwiches but there is a...More

This is where the locals eat and so glad I found it on my trip to N.O. I had the fried platter with catfish, shrimp and oysters which was delicious. The side of red beans and rice was tasty too!

Although I’ve going to Nola for many years, this place was new to me. So glad my friend suggested it. It is away from tourist scene but locals love the fried seafood and various other poboys and platter. Come hungry.

Busy dining room with family style seating. Plenty of room and friendly clientele to enjoy overstuffed po-boys. Onion rings and the calamari po-boy are a must. Need to try the duck next time I go!

This place has the best onion rings I’ve ever had!! The fried catfish was fresh and tasty. And the cochon de lait tasted just like BBQ from home! It’s a nice little hole in the wall, friendly staff and decently priced.

We had a local recommend this place. It was very good. The fried chicken and shrimp po-boy were great! Portions were huge. You could definitely share the half fried chicken with someone!

Pretty good food, but a little pricy for the value. The duck po-boy was a little on the cold side because they waited until the wings were finished cooking (about 30 minutes after ordering) to bring it out.
