Melba’s was born from the rubble of Hurricane Katrina, turning a blighted corner into a New Orleans landmark. Located at the intersection of North Claiborne Avenue and Elysian Fields Avenue, this PoBoy Shoppe has become the cornerstone of the neighborhood, well-known as a favorite among the locals.

Fish and Shrimp PoBoy


Our fried shrimp PoBoys are epic in scope, and are piled to bursting proportions with at least 30 the freshest Gulf Coast jumbo shrimp. We also offer fresh fish and shrimp PoBoy combos, a shrimp or shrimp n’ catfish platter and shrimp n’ grits in the morning.
