    As someone who visits New Orleans fairly often (at least once a year) and it being where my wife was born & raised I am often craving “real” po boys here. Well, that wait is over. B’s is the real deal from the fry recipe they use for their shrimp & oysters to the bread (Leidenheimer french bread, flown up fresh. Accept no substitutes!) to the butcher paper wrapping.

    Nothing against my other favorites Jemil’s or Where Yatt Matt’s but having a dedicated restaurant here in the neighborhood that makes them as good as I’m used to having at The Jimani or Domilise’s if just fantastic.

    Do yourself a favor and go get a Po Boy, dressed with an Abita or Saz. You won’t be disappointed if you’re looking for the real deal. :)

    Thanks for the review. I’m really looking forward to trying it!

    I know the prices for the seafood po boys are “market price,” but do you happen to know what they were (ballpark estimate) when you were there?

    Hi Sue,

    If I remember correctly the fried oyster “full” came out at $15 and the full size fried shrimp was $12 or $13. I’m sure you could ask your server and they’d be able to let you know. :) Next time I’m really looking forward to getting down on the roast beef Po Boy. My father in law had one and it looked perfect. Nice and messy!

    That’s – that’s helpful! The reason I asked is that I read a review somewhere where there was a complaint that half a shrimp sandwich was $12 and I was wondering if the whole sandwich was seriously $24. Perhaps they were unhappy with the size and assumed it was a half at that price. Who knows. I find $12 reasonable; $24, not so much. :) Will definitely check it out!

    Happy to help Sue! The seafood is always “Market Price” so fluctuations in that price will inevitably have an effect but $24? No way. Also, I’m not sure how anyone could assume the full was a 1/2. B's Po Boys

    So odd, it’s a link to a public dropbox file. Here’s a link to it on my Flikr page: https://flic.kr/p/W5nxVv

    So, we just went back this weekend and the full size Oyster Po Boy was $18, $12 for a 1/2. Considering the freshness of the oysters & bread that seems “right” in pricing. Down in NOLA the same might be $13 but they don’t have to ship everything and there’s a lot more competition of course. ;)

    Looks like $18 down on Annunciation & Bellecastle as well. :)

    Nice! You can’t mess w/ Domilise’s! The family & I are heading back down to NOLA in December and my 1st stop is always the Jimani (corner of Chartres & Iberville) and this time we’re getting reservations to Commander’s Palace for brunch but I need to hit up D’s again. Hopefully we’ll be able to this trip!

    Sounds great! I don’t know that place(Jimani) — I’ll have to give it a shot next time we’re down. There’s also Parkway out by City Park – the bread is a little different, but some really excellent poboys there as well. Enjoy your trip!

    Hi Tom,

    Long story but the first Mardi Gras I spent in NOLA, I was staying at the Chartres House (A friend had a time share unit) and The Jimani is just next door so it was really convenient at first but it became my “go to” spot for late night grub. It’s definitely not classy like Court of Two Sisters or even family style like Domilise’s, it’s a dark, grungy little hole in the wall kind of place but it’s a local fav among a lot of the service industry as a place you can go for a good meal & drink for $10 or so.

    We actually had them cater our wedding rehearsal dinner a few years back, we like them THAT much. No muss, no fuss, no frills. Just a great working person’s bar with traditional food that won’t break the bank. :)
