Mahoney's Po-Boys on Magazine

I had a delicious roast beef po-boy there today and wanted to spread the word. They've only been open a few weeks. Has anyone else been there? I thought the physical space was very comfortable and well-done, and the service was very friendly. You can tell they care a lot about their new place, and I was happy to reward them with my money. I will absolutely be back.

Oh, and they have Abita on tap, which is always a plus.

  1. Oh yeah, this place is amazing. The chef used to be the sous chef at Rio Mar. He's serious about the quality of his po-boys. Everything from scratch. No corners cut.

    1. Do you have a more specific address? Thanks!

          It also stays open until 8pm. Not too many evening po-boy options in Uptown.

        2. man i've been meaning to post about this place. i've only been once, but i had the best meatball sandwich i've ever had. they also have the standards as well as others like fried chicken livers and coleslaw, and grilled shrimp with fried green tomatoes and remoulade. the meatball poboy was sublime. a lot of thought was put into the meatballs. obviously made by hand and not over worked. some kind of interesting spices in there, too, like allspice or something of that ilk. also, a very solid red gravy with a little spice that lingers on the palate. and sliced buffalo mozzarella, which was unusual. a great, great sandwich. my table also got an order of fries and an order of onion rings. the fries were hand cut and perfect. the onion rings were the thin, shoestring variety and very tasty. these people know what they're doing. i recommend without reservation.

          1. I just went there for lunch today and had an excellent Patton's hot sausage. The table next to us got a basket of amazing looking onion rings - super thin, like shaved fried onions. Top notch place.

            1. I went recently and it was delicious! The onion rings and fries are enough to feed a table of four. My boyfriend got onion rings and I got fries and it was way too much. Yummy roast beef and fried shrimp poboys. I'm trying the meatball next!

                I had then shrimp remoulade po'boy with fried green tomatoes - best sandwich I've eaten in New Orleans

                The Fried Chicken Liver po'boy, served with coleslaw on the sandwich, while clearly not traditional, is also delish.

                  Hate to just pile on here, but we went the other day and both the mufaletta and the shrimp/remoulade/green tomato were fantastic.
