Of course we're always on the hunt for the best po'boy in New Orleans but ever since the first time I had a roast beef po'boy at Radostas, this has been THE po'boy every other po'boy has to compete with. The roast beef and gravy is absolute perfection. This is a hole in the wall, neighborhood restaurant that is only... More

This is Mom & Pop operation that is on its fourth generation. We got the Don's Po-boy which is Italian sausage, homemade olive salad (Wonderful!) and provolone cheese. My hubby and I split the 10" po-boy and it was still a lot of food. We also split the appetizer of onion rings with the table (there were 4 of us... More

First ever tasting of the legendary PO boys! Wasn't really that keen but not we're they good! Really light and airy bread with great portions of filling! I loved the grilled butter shrimp special & also the fried shrimp loaded (lettuce/tomato) , we shared a 1/2 & a full between 2 and were stuffed to the brim ! There was... More

I literally grew up eating this sandwich. I claim it to be the alpha and omega of fried shrimp poboys. Don't even think about bringing up some lame place in the quarter a thousand sweaty tourist wolf down Cycso style coconut butterfly shrimp. Radostas is the place I would if I had to eat at one restaurant to eat at... More

I am an Orleanian living away from the city, now. When in New Orleans there are two places I pilgrimage to every time regardless of season. The first is Cafe du Monde (I'll write a seperate review). The second is Radosta's. I love this place. It is everything we all love about New Orleans. A neighborhood joint. You will see... More

This was my first time at Rodostas and I loved it! I had a roast beef po-boy that was just incredible. It was the "sliced roast beef" version as opposed to the "debris style" that I thought I was in love with. As an added bonus, the service was super friendly and the place was absolutely spotless-something not always seen... More

This is a neighbor location with lots a character but a little out of the way. It is worth the diversion. Excellent place for a quick lunch. The PO-boy was very good.

Just around the corner from where I was staying and a wonderful place to get New Orleans favorite food. We went with the shrimp Poorboy and the Muffaletto. A great choice. Both were warm and full of great food. It's worth the trip if your any where in the area you won't be disappointed.

This isn't a place you'll just happen to run across as a tourist. It's tucked away in a quiet little neighborhood, so you'll avoid a lot of touristy traffic. The poboys are completely off-the-hook. Top notch. You also get friendly service and a great selection of bottled beverages (both soft drinks and beer). Definitely worth a trip (or two).

Best roast beef poor boy I have had in a while. It was well seasoned, moist but not too sloppy. Also had the muffaletta, really liked it that they asked it I wanted it warmed (I did). Nice that it only took 15 minutes to prepare (I have gotten tired of the 45-55 minute wait for the roast beef poorboy... More
