In my week long visit I tried shrimp po-boys at 3 different locations and Guy's was just behind Parkway as the best. It was recommended by our tour guide. It's small, only a few tables, but mid-afternoon wasn't busy. The people seemed nice and the...More

Was looking for a muffuletta on Magazine street, which I couldn't find, ended up hungry and settling on this place. Tried the hot sausage po-boy. Very good, delicious surprise. Wife had shrimp po-boy. Huge. Order the small and you will still be full. Cash only.

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

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
