Semi-mystery Restaurant from the Dark Ages

First, thanks for solving my last problem: Martin's on Upperline!

Next, does anyone recall Acy's Pool Hall (could have been Acie's) on Magazine, just as it intersects with about 4 other streets? Of all of the roast beef po-boys that I've ever had, theirs was the ultimate. On the last few trips down to NO, it appears that they are probably long gone. Did they close down, or mover? Great roast beef po-boys, but lacking in normal restaurant ambieance - though filled with its OWN ambieance, sort of.

While Mother's and Frank's do (or DID) a good job, these were the best - just the right amount of garlic, au jus, and great NO French bread. When Frank Gagliano's mother-in-law was cooking, her's were a very close second.

Sometimes, I can almost taste those wonderful, dripping sandwiches. Unfortunately, having lived away from NO for too many years, I have not had anything even close - regardless of where we're dining.

This is probably only geared for older chowhounds, as I suspect that they have been gone for some time.
