How can I go to NOLA and not eat at the place where Prez. Obama ate the PoBoys :) Took a cab to this residential part of NOLA and absolutely loved it. The Bayou is just close by and we had a good time. I had the Shrimp poboy and it was just yumm yumm. Highly recommend it.

I've been hearing about these "po-boy" sandwiches for quite some time, and was so happy to finally have one today! I had the roast beef and it was delicious. I also had a happy hour beer for 3 dollars and look forward to going back.

Love eating "where the locals eat". Not in the tourist area. The poboy was good...actually shrimp was great! My fella enjoyed his loaded fries and enjoyed Bloody Mary too!

It started as a tavern that served po-boys. After Katrina it was rebuilt and while it still has a bar it's become known for it's po-boys. Order a roast beef, a fried shrimp or a surf and turf, that's right, a combination of the two.

Learned about this staple on my second trip to New Orleans and my only regret was not finding it the first time. Forced myself to eat the whole (shrimp) poboy and split some gravy cheese fries with my lady.

My wife and I stopped here for lunch on our way home, as we headed out of Quarter. We both had roast beef poor boys - she ordered hers straight up and I ordered the surf and turf, which comes with a few fried shrimp on top. Both sandwiches were delicious, with the roast beef just as good and tender... More

I had lunch here a couple of weeks ago after I saw it on Adam Richman's Food Finds. I can't believe I haven't tried it before but I will definately go back. I had the surf/turf which is fried shrimp and roast beef with gravy Poboy and it was fantastic to say the least. There were several options on the... More

First impressions really do matter. We arrived at 10:55am on a Friday morning. We joined a few others outside of the front door to wait for it to open. The bartender opened the door and let us in. He informed us that if we sat at the bar, he would serve us, but if we wanted to sit elsewhere, we... More

Visited the Parkway 2 weeks ago during a trip to new Orleans and though I enjoyed the visit the Beef was just ok. In fact my wife and I make better roast beef sandwiches at home. The meat was ok but doesn't have much seasoning, when we make French dips we usually use a Cajun or grilled roast been, which... More
