The Original New Orleans Po-Boy & Gumbo Shop?

Has anybody tried this place? It's a trailer that popped up recently on South Congress at the Shell Station just north of Live Oak.
It looks pretty legit, and it got some good reviews on Yelp, but I don't really trust that site too much... just curious if anybody has any feedback, because very few things bum me out more than a shrimp Po-Boy with 6 shrimp on it.
Got takeout from them today after realizing that Along Came a Slider was randomly closed for some unknown reason. Summary - the gumbo was pretty watery and bland, and the etouffee was more like tomato soup. The blackened tilapia po'boy was disappointingly bland. The oyster po'boy had a nice amount of oysters on it, and they were quite tasty. I wish the bread were crispier, though. All in all, probably won't come back again.
I wish you'd all go try Mo-Joe's at Lincoln Village and report back...their po-boy was great IMO. Shrimp was perfect. Bread was wonderful. I had never heard of it until last week but it's apparently been there for awhile - I went for lunch and liked it a lot.
