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

Always one of my favorite stops while visiting the New Orleans area.  Often I'll pick up a couple poboys before my flight to bring home.  

Bread is perfect, staff super friendly, quick (even with long lines), put it all together and you have a great poboy experience.

This is the place that all New Orleans roast beef PoBoys should be judged by. I've been eating here for over 40 years so their time in business is no accident.

Service was good for what it was. It was really busy at 630pm. The shrimp poboy should have more shrimp. It was lumped on the one side of the sandwich. The sausage and chicken gumbo was 95% sausage. The flavor was not good as far as gumbo goes. The potato salad was good. The new zapps flavor of chips "evil eye" is so bad! I wish I ha ... read more

Historical joint - their shredded roast beef poboy is definitely a classic. Then throw in their cheese burger on French... it's an original.

I enjoyed getting poboys here growing up. Now that I live out of state, this is a must go to place anytime I'm back home. Anytime I'm asked for food recommendations by friends heading to New Orleans this is one of the top places I send them to. It is the definition of hole-in-the-wall, mom-and-pop.

I have been to shortstop twice in the last week. Although my sandwich yesterday was delicious and hit the spot, I have got to tell you why I really love short stop. On Saturday, I hosted a parade party at my apartment. I was able to get a half gallon roast beef and it perfectly filled up my medium-size crock pot. With some slider bun ... read more
