About US

NOLA Poboys is a fast casual restaurant chain that pays homage to 1920’s and 30’s New Orleans through its food, décor and commitment to Louisiana suppliers. 

NOLA Poboys was founded when Murray Tate started selling poboys after Hurricane Katrina devastated the City of New Orleans. At that time, there were almost no restaurants open. An entrepreneur at heart, Murray made poboys using a tabletop fryer in a rented warehouse space in the Central Business District. Despite the makeshift equipment and lackluster décor, his poboys were a hit. During the first Jazz & Heritage Festival after Katrina, a food critic for the Gambit Weekly gave Murray a glowing review. The rest was history. Murray could not keep up with demand. In 2012, he moved into a storefront on Bourbon Street in the French Quarter and the business has expanded from there, becoming the top rated poboy shop in New Orleans.

NOLA Poboys is committed to spreading our love of authentic Southern Louisiana cuisine by combining indigenous ingredients with traditional recipes that have been refined throughout years of serving New Orleans locals as well as tourists from all over the world.  We know you’ll love our food because we don’t serve anything in our restaurants that doesn’t meet our exacting standards.

Below is a list of our vendors, all firmly established New Orleans institutions that are well regarded throughout the region.
