Magazine St. vs. Guy's

Aside from the discussion of why I've confined tomorrow's po-boy choices to these 2, anyone have strong feelings one way or the other between Magazine Street Po-Boys vs. Guy's Po-Boys? I've been to neither, which shows how much of a rut I'm in with the more talked-about joints here and in other forums. Thanks!

  1. I'm one who believes it is harder to find a bad poboy than a good one. There are usually good and better. Best is a subjective view.

    Myself and family make many trips to Guy's and I've been to Magazine Street twice. Consistancy among many types of poboys is the plus for Guy's.

      We opted for Magazine St. Po-Boys. Nice place, much bigger than I thought. Had oyster, brother had roast beef. The roast beef was better, not that the oyster wasn't good, just nothing to make you say "Wow!" I'd go back. Need to try Guy's next.

        Tracy's isn't far away either. also very big, and they have their operation down.

          Eh, I'm not a fan of Tracey's since they moved there.
