Stopped here for lunch. It's a short walk from the Avenue Pub. on Saint Charles Street.
As people have previously mentioned in their reviews of this place. Please be advised that they do not serve beer on the premises. Strictly to-go and take-out. Something to be said about getting an Oaked arrogant Bastard in a to=go cup. :) so, don't expect to have a Koenig's pilsner with your Tongue sandwich.
I found the sandwich board and menu slightly overwhelming. When this is the case, I always pick something from the daily specials menu. Wouldn't it be my luck that they were serving up Cuban's on the day I made my visit. My first Cuban sandwich. It was delicious. The food here is top notch, A must stop in NOLA.
While waiting for my lunch I perused the three or four dedicated coolers of beer to see what I could score for taking back to the house we were renting. I found the single to be bit bit pricey, but then again it is the big city. Seems they don't sell beer by the case here. The upside is that we did get a 10% discount of our purchase of anything more than a six pack if I can recall correctly. At any rate we found a case and a half of beer to schlep back to the house.
Six packs of Koenigs Pilsner pounders for 9.99 was the deal of the day.
Mostly American craft beer beer here, along with all the local beers. No macros, what a relief. Plenty of Stone products, along with some other West coast favorites. A fairly good selection of Belgians and some German offerings.
Go here for the food and leave here with some beer!

First off, write-off many of the negative reviews you see on this site. They are for two reasons:
1. The customer came during lunch-time, when the shop is packed because the sandwiches are KILLER. Yeah, the beer service isn't great at this time, but, God forbid, you hang out for a bit and have a reuben? Yeah then you can talk to Dan (the owner) about his awesome selection.
2. Preferential Treatment: Yeah, it happens here, but doesn't this occur anywhere? If an owner gets 1 case of a highly sought-after beer, is he or she not right to share with his or her best customers? I say yes, but that's a personal opinion. People from out of state may night get the extreme "rare" beers here, but they will still do well.
The food is spectacular, grab a sandwich if you're at all hungry.
And the beer, yeah, it's the best you can get in the state of Louisiana. I lived here for one year, and Dan, thank you for everything.
This is a superb shop, visit if you can, get a great sandwich and leave with better beer.

Went here after seeing this place mentioned on here. Walked in, pretty dumpy place but did have quite a few beers. I picked up several Praire Ales, Evil Twin, and then found 2 bottles of Hommage. Went to the counter to check out, guy, (owner) asks where I'm from. I tell him Florida and he says he can't sell me the Hommage, only "regular" customers can buy. I ask why it's on the shelf, he says it shouldn't be and he won't sell it to me. Again, because I am from out of town. He continues to ring up my other $130 worth of beer and I tell him I won't buy it if he is dictating what I can buy. He gets loud with me, says "this is why I hate out of town people."
Suck a D man!! Pizz on this place!
