Skip the Metairie Deanies with their gross heaps of fried stuff and head for a little lunch place downtown with the same name but of no relation to the former.
On Poeyfarre street down by the convention center near the bridge is a little spot that is a hidden gem and serves some of the best poboys in town. Open for breakfast and lunch, this Deanies serves up delicious breakfasts, plate lunches and poboys. The large sandwitches are huge- enough for 2 to share. The seafood is perfectly fried and heaped on. This place is awesome- so far it seems to be a secret of ups drivers, cops and dockworkers. Go join them for a great meal!
