Best Po-Boys in New Orleans

Acme Peacemaker Po Boy
According to, po-boy sandwiches are “the shotgun house of New Orleans cuisine.” All we know is you can't visit New Orleans without splitting one with your BFF. Oyster, shrimp, soft-shell crab, roast beef with debris, meatball. Here'''s who made our best "dressed" list.

Fried Shrimp Po-Boy Gumbo Shop Sauteed Shrimp Po-Boy

Gumbo Shop
This messy-but-worth-it po-boy from the Gumbo Shop is kind of like Shrimp Etouffee on French bread. Order yourself a cup of gumbo and maybe some Smothered Turnip Greens on the side and you're all set.

Fried Shrimp Po-Boy The Iberville Cuisine Fried Shrimp Po-Boy

Iberville Cuisine
We loved this po-boy! The shrimp couldn't have been fresher and the breading wasn't too much - just enough! Proof you don't have to go to an awards ceremony to win a Best "Dressed" award.

The Felix Special thumb The Felix Special

Felix's Restaurant & Oyster Bar
At Felix's, you don't have to choose between a fried shrimp or a fried oyster po-boy. The Felix Special gives you both. We recommend ordering it with cup of gumbo, which also earned a place in one of our Best of Guides.

Fried Shrimp Po-Boy thumb Fried Shrimp Po-Boy

Oceana Grill
This huge po boy is sure to satisfy your hunger. We especially love how the bread is always soft and fresh. It's served with french fries and dressed with coleslaw, tomatoes, pickles, onions and remoulade just the way we like it.

Fried Softshell Crab Po-Boy thumb Fried Softshell Crab Po-Boy

Acme Oyster House
Acme doesn't just serve up crab meat in their po boy, they give you an entire crab! This dish is just as good as it looks and as usual it's dressed with lettuce, tomato and pickle. We recommend trying it with the TABASCO infused mayo too.

Shrimp Caminada Po-Boy thumb Shrimp Caminada Po-Boy

Grand Isle Restaurant
The Shrimp Caminada is named after Cheniere Caminada, a small fishing town west of Grand Isle that was destroyed by an 1893 hurricane. The shrimp is sautéed in a spicy citrus butter and served on two slices of Leidenheimer French bread alongside an herb slaw of cabbage, carrots, red bell pepper and fresh herbs.

Shrimp Remoulade Po-Boy thumb Shrimp Remoulade Po-Boy

Court Tavern PoBoys
Po Boy is in their name so it must be good. Our favorite is the shrimp remoulade with cold, boiled shrimp tossed in a secret Creole remoulade sauce. We recommend getting it dressed with lettuce, tomatoes and pickles.
