EXCELLENT Po'Boys

HUGE variety of Po Boys that are excellent. We got three different kinds and loved them all. Get there early or be prepared to wait. But the wait is worth it! Tip: Not far from City Park so you might consider lunch here on your way to the park!

We had lunch there on a Monday and it was still packed. Totally worth the wait. The food is deelish. The po-boys are so large you could easily share which we did - half shrimp, half oyster. Sweet potatoe fries are a must. Its not a fancy place and kinda hot inside and out. But who cares about that when... More

We ate at a lot of places in NOLA and had our share of Poboy sandwiches...none were better than Parkway. This out of the way eatery is where locals go for a great sandwich at a reasonable price. A large will easily feed two. The variety is excellent and there will be a sandwich for everyone. Add some sweet potato... More

Took the streetcar up then a short walk and we were there. Crowded around lunch, had to wait in line but went pretty quick. Tried the fried shrimp and alligator sausage po boy's and both were very good. Glad we took the time and went.

My wife and I are avid travel and food channel watchers. We saw Parkway on an episode and have been wanting to try their surf and turf po' boy. Not only did we try it, we loved it. The fried shrimp is amazing and with the roast beef and gravy, it's even better. We also shared the gravy covered fries.... More

I love the roast beef and gravy poboys as well as the shrimp. The bread is the best I've ever had in New Orleans.

My sister has lived here for almost 20 years and took me here. She said it was the best Po Boys in town. It was awesome! We got the Shrimp and Catfish, both great. The sandwiches are huge, the sauce on them was delicious. Also we got to flush it down with Barq's root beer in a glass bottle, which... More

The Po boys were "sloppy" as I like them the gravy was good . The shrimp was good. The banana pudding nothing special. We got there at 11 on a weekday and waited 40 min the line was 3 times longer by 1pm. I can't decide if the wait is really any better than other good po'boy shops in NO.
