We went about 10. Several in our party had bayou breakfast and others had poboys. They were all fantastic. Crisp seafood, fantastic bread, great sausage and all very friendly. Thanks Johnny's!

We had a catfish and a shrimp po-boy. The sandwiches are large (one is big enough for 2 people). Each was around $15. Also, be prepared with cash since credit cards are not accepted (as in several places in the area). ATM machines are scattered...More

Went for lunch and the place was packed. The line moves quickly. Limited seating in the front but extra seating offered behind the kitchen. Upstairs seating is open at sometimes but not others, it is accessed by stairs just to the right as you walk...More

The Shrimp Poboy was delicious. I️ would rate this a 4 star. The gumbo was cold and not very tasteful. My husband had the alligator Poboy and it was good. I️ definitely would recommend the Shrimp Poboy!

We should have gotten a half sandwich. They are huge! Good flavor, bread is nice and chewy and the shrimp had great flavor. Good spot for lunch. Leave some room for coffee and a beignet down the street at Cafe Beignet on Decatur Street.

This is the only Poboy I have ever tried so I probably can’t give it a defining review but as a big foodie, I thought this place did what it said on the tin. It’s basically like a greasy spoon. You don’t expect the friendliest...More

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
