Our Story - Mahony's Po-boys

Making Po-Boy History

A Po-boy (or po’ boypo boy, or poor boy) is a traditional sandwich born in Louisiana and served on submarine style French bread stuffed with meat or seafood (or sometimes both!). Since its origins in the 1800s, the Po-boy has been one of New Orleans’ favorite bites to eat. Despite their popularity, many of the city’s famous Po-boy shops have begun to disappear. Mahony’s Po-Boys & Seafood is a tribute to those classic neighborhood Po-boy shops of New Orleans. Mahony’s combines fresh local ingredients and family recipes to re-create the standard Po-boy classics and also offer new, creative and exciting versions of New Orleans’ favorite sandwich.

We may be known for our award-winning Po-boys, but we also offer an overstuffed menu of comfort foods, delicious salads, perfectly fried or grilled seafood, hot plates, and more. Located on historic Magazine Street, we know how to appreciate food and life, from brunch to happy hour, and lunch to dinner. We hope to see you wandering into our shop that we call home, so we can pour you a cold drink and serve you up a sandwich or plate you are sure to remember.
