Had the Cochon de Lait po Boy at their 'love at first bite' tent at French Quarter Fest. It was hands down one of the best - if not the best - pulled pork sandwiches I've ever had in my entire fantastic life. I say that as a die hard NC BBQ snob. It was so amazing. 10 stars!!

When you're a local as I am. You don't have to wait for the festivals to get great food. Walker's is a must have at Jazz Fest. But they have a small location hidden away in New Orleans. They are only open occasionally here. They do so many festivals you should call first before you make a special trip. Yesterday... More

This is about 8 miles from downtown, and only open for lunch Wednesday through Sunday. But the Cochon de Lait Po'Boy, dressed with coleslaw, is one of the best meals I've ever eaten. The lady at the next table was back home on a visit from Texas, and I thought she was going to cry with happiness over her return... More

This place usually has a food booth at jazz fest, french quarter fest and wooden boat fest to name a few. The cochon de lait poboy is incredible. Smoked pulled pork placed in the bread on top of coleslaw and then add BBQ sauce to top it off. ONLY downside for tourist without your own car, would prob have to... More

While most Southerners wouldn't call this BBQ, it's still great. This is "cochon de lait" (the pulled pork sandwich) that is sold at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, made by the exact same outfit. Except, here it's a larger sandwich and cheaper. And it's still excellent. Call ahead - they're always closed a couple of weeks before jazzfest.... More
