Well worth finding

This Poboy sandwich place is not near anything a tourist would be going to but the locals all know about it and go there. They have expanded their already large parking lot to take care of the lunch crowd. The attraction starts with the home made bread they use for the sandwich - its baked on... read more

This place which has been here for decades is a Po-Boy institution in New Orleans is one of my must go-to place for a Po Boy when in New Orleans. I am always torn between the Roast Beef and the Shrimp but twice a week they often have oyster Po Boys as well. The bread is of course excellent but... More

The gumbo here is out of this world, the absolute best gumbo around! We had the gator and turkey gumbo (seriously it was the best I had while in New Orleans) and a Shrimp po boy. Our food was served quickly and piping hot. Best food in New Orleans!

What a treat to finally get to Parkway - it's out of the way if you're staying in or near the French Quarter, but worth the trip! We shared an Oyster Po'boy and a Shrimp Po'Boy. Both were delicious, but the shrimp was actually our favorite, because it's hard to get such fresh tasty shrimp, lightly breaded and perfectly cooked... More

Ate here the Saturday before Mardi Gras prior to Endymion Parade. As expected there were a lot of people and a line. However the line moved at a steady pace and it was well worth the wait. Plenty of seating and they were obviously prepared to serve a lot of people. Staff was visible, cleaning and helping customers. We ate... More

My wife found Parkway on TripAdvisor and I benefited from her skills. We both had the shrimp Poboys which were excellent, she also enjoyed the condiment bar. Solid fries (sweet potato and regular) and a bucket of Abita made for a great meal. We skipped the line by dining at the full service bar. Tip: Avoid the line and enjoy... More

was here during Mardi Gras and there was a long line. We ended up eating in the bar as we wanted a drink too. Turns out you can order and be served in the bar to avoid the line. Very quaint bar! good beer selections. Best sweet potato fries I have had, and the shrimp poorboy was good (albeit fried).... More

Unfortunately, that was the only time we tried a Poboy, so I cannot judge who's better. I saw some critics saying that it is the best poboy in New Orleans. But we really liked the experience ! We had the shrimp poboy. The bread was overflowed by fried shrimp ! Very gooooooood ! Service was fast and efficient.

Their bread helps make the perfect poor boy sandwich. Shrimp perfectly fried, not greasy, perfectly seasoned, the right amount of mayo, correct serving temperature. As a former New Orleanian, I know great food. When we visit, this place is always on our dining list. It's definitely worth my calories! There may be a waiting line but it's worth it.
