Cheeky Sandwiches is definitely a favorite now! Most of the food closest to my workplace are forgettable. Other than that, I would have to walk to Rivington, Houston, or Orchard, which cuts into my hour break. Cheeky Sandwiches is worth the late return to the office! Since I took my first bite a week ago, the Chicken on a Biscuit has become a part of my dreams. I plan my work schedule/meetings, etc. around that little walk over to Orchard Street. I also tried the Shrimp Po Boy, which was delicious and flavorful. Cheeky Sandwiches is definitely a GO!

I moved to NO a few yrs ago, and on a trip back decided to stop in here. Unfortunately, this wasn't very close to a NO style poboy shop. The food was a far cry from the type of sandwiches made in NO. The sandwiches weren't even on french bread. They did have olive salad. The bread pudding was dry and heated up the the microwave. The service was good, although the staff seemed unable to handle a large volume of customers well. They didn't have the typical sandwiches you would find in NO, like catfish poboy, shrimp and oyster with butter. But they had some other favorites.

If you have eaten a Shrimp po-boy in New Orleans and you are craving the real thing, this is the only place in town you are gonna get it. The owner (cutie from New Orleans East) orders real french bread from a bakery in the Gentilly neighborhood in New Orleans and he knows how to do it just right - dressed with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, and hot sauce. YUMMO! Being from New Orleans, it's the next best thing to being there and having myself a fried shrimp po boy from Guy's on Magazine Street. My only complaint is that the sandwich is on the small side compared to a po-boy born in New Orleans, but it is worth every bite.
