I moved to Atlanta from New Orleans in 2015. Long as Iโ€™ve been here, Iโ€™ve been searching & trying different places that say theyโ€™re New Orleans (nope) but I stopped by The Poโ€™bot Shop today (Praise Dance ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿฝ) Iโ€™VE FOUND THE REAL AUTHENTIC NEW ORLEANS FOOD IN DECATUR ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ.

Best place in town to get authentic New Orleans style poor-boys made with real Liedenheimer bread, served dressed, with your choice of Barq's in a glass bottle, a Hurricane in a plastic go-cup, or a variety of Louisiana and GA beers.

After driving by this place for 7 months, I decided to call in an order. All I can say is Mmmmmmmmm!! So good I ordered the Surf and Turf po boy, boudin balls, and Mango Margarita to go. (They politely corrected my annunciation of boudin ๐Ÿ™ƒ) Surf and Turf was AMAZING!! I dont eat pork so I gave the boudin balls away but the recipi ... read more

Had takeout three times and they were all excellent. Catfish, shrimp, debris, and hamburger po boys were perfect and good size with fresh ingredients. It's now my son's favorite restaurant. Submarine sandwich bread is not easy to find in Atlanta, but they have the real thing here. Hush puppies, meat pies, and fries were all good e ... read more

HIGHLY RECOMMEND OMG!!!! We ordered two shrimp po'boys and one hot sausage. We couldn't leave out the parking lot. The poboys smelled and tasted so good we went back for another one. Fresh bread and shrimp seasoned to perfection. We will be back.

Went today and was a pretty darn good experience. Manager was very charismatic and handled everything effectively and with a smile. Food came really fast which was nice because we needed to be somewhere. I had a crawfish Poโ€™boy to go and enjoyed it thoroughly. Enjoyed some of the mango margarita, highly recommend. I definitely need t ... read more

The food was amazing, my mother is from Louisiana so I love Cajun food. We ordered 3 poboys, boudin balls, friend pickles, and a mango marg. They were all sooooo good. I just moved to this neighborhood and Iโ€™m excited that I only live 1 mile from there. I canโ€™t wait to come try their Thursday night 21+ seafood boil because everything ... read more

Almost too generous with the drinks. But the waitress was super nice and the half fried oyster half fried shrimp PO boy was heavenly! Will definitely be back to try the rest of the menu!

Surf n turf po messy as it is yummy. Shrimp were fresh. The staff are friendly and the owner was super nice also. Ive had the muffaletta too, its all good. Its worth trying, for sure. The basement bar is a sweet space with pool tables too. I dig it.
jeremy reeme via - Aug 19, 2021
Fantastic food, but don't forget the bar downstairs. I might regret exposing this gem. Very friendly and fun staff. Shrimp boil last time I stopped by.
Michael Gurliaccio via - Aug 16, 2021
Had a lot of fun here. They are basically split between the top quick-service part of the restaurant and the basement bar. The basement bar has a nice dive bar feel without being too gritty or dirty. It is spacious and clean and just feels welcoming. Drinks are well priced with decent selection, there are games and TVs galore, an ... read more

Great spot! My husband and I decided to try for the first time. He had the half shrimp/ oyster Po' Boy, the regular size. I had the small oyster Po' Boy. Both were simply delicious! The bread was amazingly soft and melted in our mouths. Both were filled nicely with lightly breaded shrimp and oysters. Lettuce, tomatoes and pickles ac ... read more

Great food and great service. There's a reason they are busy.

Excellent food and positive vibes with Southern hospitality. We drove from Chicago to Atlanta/Decatur for peace and food, and The Po'Boy Shop was surely a standout. Wishing them well in their outstanding business.
Secret Shop via - Aug 5, 2021
There aren't many PoBoy shops in ATL or metro. Here is hands down the best. Everytime I'm close to the area I pick one up. This review is coming from a Cajun. Keep it up guys!
Jacob Sniff via - Aug 4, 2021
This is the real deal. They get their bread from a New Orleans bakery. Service is quick and prices are reasonable. Try the poโ€™boys and the crawfish hand pies!
Margie Tullos via - Aug 3, 2021
The crawfish pies are too good.

I totally give them a 5 star. Great customer service! Delicious food! I cannot wait to go back for some more of everything. Too bad they are so far away. I would probably be in weekly.

The place was way bigger than I accepted. The food was great. I had the boudin balls and the Patton's hot sausage po-boy. Delish. Oh and a hurricane.

Friendly customer service and the food was delicious as well! I ordered the Shrimp Poโ€™ Boy and the cup of red beans and rice. Everything was great.

Looking for a lunch spot and happened upon this gem. The Poโ€™Boy was delicious. Both of us went for the half & half and a side of some of the best fries Iโ€™ve had in quite awhile. Would definitely come again if I find myself in the area. Highly recommend ๐Ÿ˜‹ ... read more

Yesterday was my Very first time going to The Po Boy Shop in Decatur. When I say their food was Good Omg It was Good.

The food was delicious! They are quite generous with the portions which made biting into the PoBoy an amazing experience. There is something for everyone from seafood to beef. This is a must have especially if you like PoBoys.

Good Po' Boy, Fontaine's is still tops. Good beer selection. Cellar bar is nice, well lit, comfortable space. Service is good.
Jay Brower via - Jun 13, 2021
Ate in downstairs area. Wait staff very friendly and helpful. Had the half and half ( shrimp & oyster) po' boy. Best oysters I've had in Atlanta in ages. Very clean and fresh tasting and perfectly cooked. Will definitely return.
Pamela Hunt via - Jun 9, 2021
Iโ€™ve been here so many times now and every time I have not left disappointed. The bread pudding is CONSISTENT. It is always tasty and I always want more but you have to some self control. ๐Ÿ˜‚ My most recent visit I got to check out the basement bar and it was so cool! I was expecting something dingy and scary but it was completely oppo ... read more

Great po boys with bread trucked in fresh from new Orleans. The other food is not as great as the sandwiches from my experience. The shop also has a sports bar in the basement.
Chris Griffin via - Jun 5, 2021
Iโ€™m giving 5 stars off the meat pies alone (everything is great but those pies are on another level). I would have them cater my wedding , open bar and food. Thatโ€™s how good this place is. Try it out.

Let me tell you how I had the best experience here! Drea is the best bar tender we have ever come across. Her personality is everything! The food was delicious and the customer service was superb.

I decided to treat myself after a long day at work. And boy did I pull up on a treat. I order a shrimp po'boy and omg was it great. I also ordered the red beans and rice, and took a nice peach mango margarita to go. Everything was great, let me say that. If you're looking for something quick and good... Definitely go see them!!!!!
Jackee Taylor via - May 27, 2021
Y'all came through like I thought you would. Thank you for the amazing shrimp po-boy with extra remoulade sauce it was definitely to my expectations because I had been craving a po boy for weeks.
