Mother's Restaurant

New Orleans, LA

(504) 523-9656 ‎

Price: $ $

  • Delightful: the bread pudding · baked ham · shrimp po boy · red beans and rice · jambalaya

  • "Went for lunch. Seafood gumbo was terrific. Fried chicken was very good ..."

Mother’s Restaurant opened its doors in 1938 on Poydras Street’s “Restaurant Row”, situated between a thriving waterfront and the courthouse. Owners Simon and Mary (Mother) Landry and his large family cooked up po’ boys for lines of longshoremen and laborers, newspapermen and attorneys.

In 1986, the Jerry and John Amato bought Mother’s from the Landry’s sons Jacques and Eddie. Now traditional New Orleans dishes like jambalaya and Shrimp Creole line-up next to the po’ boys that Mother’s made famous, such as the Ferdi Special and the debris po-boy (for a history of these and other sandwiches on the Fun Facts page). Breakfast, lunch and dinner items are cooked with fresh ingredients and bold, delicious flavor.

All of the Po Boys here are great. My latest try was the Roast Beef, which was great! And yes, it got a little soggy - if you get a Roast Beef Po Boy and it isn't a little soggy, you are eating in the wrong place!!

It isn't the fanciest place and the employees aren't the friendliest, but man do they make a nice sandwich!
