Making Po-Boy History
A po-boy (or po’ boy, po boy, or poor boy) is a traditional sandwich born in Louisiana, served on submarine style French bread, stuffed with meat or seafood – or sometimes both. Since its origins in the 1800’s, the po-boy has been one of New Orleans’ favorite bites to eat. Despite their popularity, many of New Orleans’ famous po-boy shops have begun to disappear. Mahony’s Po-Boys & Seafood is a tribute to the old neighborhood po-boy shops of New Orleans. Mahony’s combine fresh local ingredients and Chef Ben’s family recipes to create the obvious classics and new, more untraditional 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.
