  1. what is it? green what?

    1. It's the best. I haven't been back since Katrina, but this convenience store makes some great food to take back when you don't really want to go out for dinner. Their creamed spinach still brings a smile to my face. It's truly a place for the locals, but don't let that stop you!

      On the corner of Royal and Gov. Nicholls.

      1. right,
        they have great poboys, especially of the fried seafood variety, if you get a dinner with 2 sides you pay 7 or so dollars, and your to go box will weigh 2 and a half pounds.

          1. Me! Best ribs i've ever had in my life!

              Cheap but nasty. You can keep the "dirty"marte.

                I second the "dirty marte" comment. Too, too, gross. Even when I lived a block away it was a no-go. And, I am a broke college student who will eat anything. I prefer Quarter Master.

                  interesting. im as comfortable in Parasol's as i am Commander's, and havent seen anything particularly unusual about VM. cramped, to be sure, but just seemed pretty much identical to Quarter Master, Frady's, or any other convenience store deli counter.

                  1. re: kibbles

                    In my opinion it's just dirtier and one is much more likely to get a stomachache eating their greasy poboys with "special" sauces. I don't know why I feel that Quarter Master is better. Just a better track record with it I guess.
