Ordered the spicy chicken poboy. It takes about 10 minutes to fry the chicken. The lady behind the counter immediately informed me of this. Most places don't tell you and would just let you get upset that it's taking some time. If you want a good sandwich with excellent service, this place is always top of my list.

There's a reason a restaurant stays around for decades and is always busy. Shortstop has perfected that reason! The food is always fresh. The service is always delivered with a smile. It's just a true New Orleans kind of experience.

I ordered shrimp poboy with sweet potato fries. It was good. Just wish the shrimps were fried just a little harder. Great food and welcoming staff.

Quintesssntial New Orleans po-boys. Been coming here for twenty years and it's still the same, delicious, amazing product. Don't believe the 1 star reviews. There is a reason this place just had a 55th anniversary; it's because it's delicious. As a bonus, if you are headed to the airport for a flight out, they will deconstruct a roas ... read more

I've been eating roast beef here since it started off in back of grocery store.. me myself think they were better years ago. But I LOVE ROAST BEEF ON FRENCH. They don't have a gravy it's just brown water. Lol really no beef flavor. I know they put pieces of onion in the meat. Buy at least it's not store bought roast like many rest ... read more

My first experience was ok. I ordered by phone, a half in half shrimp/oyster with small fries. They took my number down and said when my order was ready they would call me to pick up at drive thru. Well it was over 30mins I waited, so my Mom told me to call them. I called and my food had been ready but no one called to inform me. I ... read more

A staple in Metairie for poboys. Fast service. Good roast beef. A little hard to park. Overall reliably good!

We absolutely love this place! Im so happy they are available through delivery. We ordered a side of the jambalaya with our normal favorites to try it and it was so good we immediately ordered two more large sides of it.

Their classic pulled roast beef loaded was excellent! Their BBQ pulled beef was a little soggy in the bottom bun but still very good.

Excellent sandwich joint. Priced a little high and service is not fast. It's worth the wait just plan on a quick stop.

3 people, 2 sandwiches, 3 drinks, a couple souvenir candies. $50!!!? It was dang good. But that was a little much.

Delicious food. I will dine here again. New customers need help for confusing ordering process. They accidentally put mustard on my shrimp sandwich but it was still yummy. Prices are reasonable.

Loved it and will be back. I'd only seen the commercials before this visit. I knew they were a long standing staple for poboys but now I know why. The size, the price, the fun guy behind the counter and the sheer options for poboys are all contributors to this 5 star experience. There was a line outside to get in but it was handled w ... read more

First-time patron. It felt kind of chaotic. Please put up some signs for new customers about where to order, where to pay, and where to wait.
