Come Back Inn has the best red beans and rice in the Metairie. They also have excellent seafood and poboys. I highly recommend them as a delicious neighborhood restaurant .

If not recommended by TA destination expert, we would have overseen it or would have been reluctant to dine here. Neighborhood little inviting, not to say neglected. Not very friendly. Self service. Order at the counter, and pick up when your number is called. We were positively surprised by taste of food and size of portions. Great value.

Off the beaten path but well worth the effort! A wide variety on the menu from salads, sandwiches and platters. The Po'Boys are overstuffed and you will not go away hungry. The french bread is very crispy and light making a perfect sandwich. I will definitely go back for seconds!

I wanted to try a Muffaletta so I researched TA and found this place. We stopped in and was surprised. According to TA it was take out only, but they DO have a dinning area now. It was quite cozy.

Come Back Inn has been around for years and is your basic go to place to eat. It is not fancy, but the food and prices are good. You will leave with a full stomach and not an empty wallet.

If you want an exceptional roast beef poboy, then this is your place. Tender and juicy, ask for extra gravy and you'll get a bowl of this yummy stuff. I like lots of gravy, so this was perfect. Had the best sweet potato fries here I've ever had. Huge basket for $3. Everyone's food looked delicious, especially the soft-shell crabs... More

I grew up in the neighborhood around Come Back Inn and I used to eat there often. Since I moved away 25+ years ago I only visited the restaurant once a couple of years ago. My family and I decided to have lunch there when we were in the area in July 2016. This is a family restaurant. Nothing fancy,... More

I've been eating at Come Back Inn for about thirty years and one thing I love about them is their consistency. And their roast beef po boys are wonderful, as are the hot sausage po boys! This is truly an outstanding neighborhood restaurant with reasonable prices and generous portions!

Thank betabor
