Get in line, and early. (The line during the lunch rush will wrap the building.) Get a Ferdi or a Roast Beef Debris. ("Debris" is the pieces of meat that fall off the roast while it's cooking--think pulled pork.) Order it "dressed" that means pickles, cabbage, and creole mustard. Get an order of french fries as well--though'll you'll never finish them all. Stock pile that napkins, you'll need them.

On a three day trip to New Orleans, I ended up coming to Mother's twice. That's right. Twice.
With their amazing Po' Boys (enhanced with the burnt bits of roasted beef), "world's best baked ham," and a bowl of beans and rice, you may find yourself coming back for seconds too.
Check out their website and familiarize yourself with what you want before coming. I've heard you'll be frowned upon if you don't order efficiently.Recommended for:Foodies

This place will leave you reeling with delight, from the food to the atmosphere. It is usually busy, waiting to order on a busy day is another experience, watching the locals order their food and chatting with the employees. Great food, great place.

Get here early to stand in line for these popular po boys and Cajun dishes served cafeteria style. This is a very popular local favorite. The Ferdi Special is the famous po boy with ham, roast beef, and "debris".
