The best po-boys.
Jacques Abadie via - Aug 7, 2020
There are MANY poboy restaurants between Kenner, Metaire, and New Orleans, but Russell's is in my top 5. The bread is fresh, the shrimp are cooked perfectly, staff was very nice and they are fast. Be aware, since Covid-19 you will wait outside due to only 6 people allowed in the restaurant. Call ahead.....

Still one of the best since 1966!
Russell's Short Stop has been around since I was a kid. From my standpoint, they have not fallen off. Still one of the best PoBoy shops in the New Orleans Metro Area. Fresh bread, tasty AND plentiful shrimp, and friendly service. You will NOT be...More ... read more

I have eaten here since I was old enough to eat this kind of food, it has always been amazing, and I highly recommend the roast beef fully dressed with a Boylan root beer or a hot sausage patty also fully dressed. Whenever I'm back in town I always get the biggest craving to stop by! I have many fond memories here and always recommen ... read more

I've never been disappointed by the menu. My fav is their terrific hot roast beef debris poboy. Get a punch card, become a regular customer & receive a free sandwich after so many purchases. If you're traveling a ways & don't want a soggy debris poboy, ask to have the ingredients separate & make the poboy @ your destination.

Jambalaya! First time I tried that at Short Stop. Won’t be the last. So good. I found it to be more like what I think of as Dirty Rice. After all we’ve been through over the past 3 months it was good to be standing inside Short Stop again watching people ordering and waiting with anticipation for their good Louisiana food. And the r ... read more

One of the best poboy spots in the New Orleans metro area. Good price and the sandwiches always have a good amount of meat on them(which there's A LOT of poboy shops that skimp on the meats but this place does not).

The best roast beef po boys I have ever tasted !!!
reba tullier via - May 5, 2020
Never had a bad po boy or anything there until last Friday. Mushy bread, terrible onion rings. I am chalking it up to the pandemic going on and will give them another chance after this is over. That's why I am giving them 3 stars. They were 5 before this.

This might be an unpopular opinion but I have eaten at shortstop for years since I was a little kid. Excellent food but when they get busy the just hang the phone up on you. And for some reason they dont have call waiting or atleast they dont have multiple lines. You will get continuously hung up on over and over until you just go so ... read more
