Louisiana Traveler - Domilise's Poboys

New Orleans is known for a lot of things, including poboys. There are plenty of places in the Crescent City to get a poboy and most, if not all of them, are great. But for some, there's only Domilise's. Owner Josh Domilise said the bar has been here for over a century, but it was only during the great depression that the poboy came along. He said his customers are loyal for a reason.  

"I think the fact that it never ever changes," Domilise said. "I mean people come here for fifty, sixty years and say it's the same exact food, same exact atmosphere, a lot of the same people, too." 

"I used to live in New Orleans," said Felicia, who lives in Baton Rouge now. "But whenever I come down, I come here for a poboy. I've been coming here since starting college thirty years ago. So I've been coming ever since." 

Kyle and Lori Carter are from Pensacola, Florida, and decided to check out Domilise's after it was featured by the Travel Channel's Anthony Bourdain 

"We came here to get some good poboys," said Kyle. "We've seen this on the Travel Channel's ‘No Reservations' web site and thought it would be a pretty good place to check out. 

"It is fantastic," said Lori. "Really good. A little messy, but really worth it." 

For folks like New Orleans native George Dugas, there's no other place to get a poboy.

"I keep coming back here," Dugas said. "It's been one of the best parts of my life growing up in this area and eating poboys. It's really a treat to come back and take the grand kids and my children."

Domilise's is located at 5240 Annunciation St. in New Orleans. You can call them at 504-899-9126.

    Tonight, it should be another nice, yet warm evening. Any clouds we see today will clear away around sunset, and the rain chances go back to zero tonight. The temperatures will be fairly warm. They should not cool out of the 70s in most places. Especially near the coastline. North of I-10 has a chance to too the upper 60s, but it will still be warm. This will start off with more hot and humid conditions. There will likely be plenty of clouds every now and then.
