Knew that Mothers would be crowded mid day and wanted a good po boy. Had a car so could drive to Mid City for what was an amazing po boy! Typical line up and ordering process. Try the bread pudding--it is amazing!

Great stop for a thanksgiving po-boy. Only available a few times before Thanksgiving. The line was pretty long, but it was okay. The bar area was a nice addition to the great food.

take the time to find this hidden away "po-boy shop". all of the standard po-boys are on the menu. and they are all very good. crusty french bread with fresh meat or seafood stuffed in a sandwich that must be "dressed" and you will understand why this joint has been a local favorite for decades. they never disappoint.

We saw this place on a TV show "Man Finds Food" they had an amazing PoBoy called the James Brown so as soon as we arrived in NOLA off we went! The disappointing part was when we got there it wasn't on the menu and none of the staff (I asked 3 of them) had ever heard of it. So... More

Wow....how lucky we were to have been here on Wednesday night to have a Po-boy oyster sandwich. The bread was tender crusty on the outside and soft on the inside. The oysters were cooked perfectly. Also Lelanda, the receptionist, spent a lot of time with us to share information about NOLA

Birthplace of the po' boy and it shows! All of our food was excellent, great atmosphere. Lots to look at on the walls. Easy to see why this is an institution. Beer was cheap. Bar was full. I was told there is always a line, and there was for us, but not too bad. Wait time for food not bad... More

Parkway Bakery has probably been around longer most of those who have reviewed it. Took a major hit in Katrina but came back stronger than ever. That being said this may be the best place for PoBoys in New Orleans. Not the most ambient of places, but who cares really. With this place it is what you eat that is... More

Our tenth trip to NOLA and at least 15th visit here. Wednesday's is "oyster PO boy" day, not sure why they only have them on Wednesday, but it is sick!!!! What a sandwich- no place in town can touch this place for PO boys. Rent a car, take a cab, hitch, or walk - if you eat onky 1 meal... More
