Best sweet potato po boy EVER!

The best, that is all! Check out the menu before you get there and be there when it opens or be prepared to wait. Incredible! Sweet potato po boy dressed with lettuce, mayo and pickles, along with honey mustard was to die for.

Stopped in for dinner this afternoon. Walked in the place, figured out where the restaurant actually was. Walking in, I ask the woman sweeping the floor should I sit and she answers without even turning around. I had to ask her to repeat what she said as I could not understand her, which was to order at the counter and... More

Parkway was one of our best eating experiences in NOLA--and we ate A LOT. Based on the recommendations of several locals, we took an Uber from the FQ to Parkway for lunch. It is a bit of a hike from the FQ, but it is SO worth it. We went during Jazzfest, so it was a lot busier than I'd... More

My first Po Boy experience was at Mahoney's cause that's where Emeril said to go. So wrong! THIS is the place for Po Boys! My husband and I walked over during the Bayou Boogaloo last week and I only wish I was hungrier that I could have tried more of their food. We ordered a large roast beef po boy... More

If you are lucky enough to be here on a day they offer fried pickles grab a side of them! The po-boys here are the real deal. My favorite is the surf-n-turf. Juicy roast beef (like it came out of an all day crock pot simmer - very tender!) and gravy with crunchy fried shrimp. I always get it dressed,... More

On the advice of a kind stranger who shared our table at Bayou Boogaloo, we wandered over for an afternoon Bloody Mary. The bloodys were great, as were our other cocktails, and the 3-7 happy hour was a killer deal. I couldn't pass up the bread pudding either and am happy to report it's one of the best I've ever...

I love this place. The roast beef is awesome. I'm the portions are so big that even a big guy, such as I am, can't finish it and I always leave stuffed. The Potato Poboy is the one exception. If you add the gravy it is the best of both and you don't leave feeling like you've eaten the whole... More

Parkway offers easy ordering, with a loudspeaker to alert patrons when their order is ready. The place is typical, cluttered decor for a sandwich place and caters to a large following. The outside area is spacious, with tents and dozens of banquet tables. The food itself is good quality, especially the fried shrimp. Not fine dining, but a great po'boy... More

Was directed here by a local. I walked from the French Quarters and was happy I made the 2 mile trip. Shrimp po'boy was excellent. Make sure you find the sauce station to add to your sandwich. I ordered the smaller sized sandwich and wished I would have gotten the larger one. Oyster and Shrimp po'boys only served on Mondays... More
