Make sure and order Surf & Turf po-boy, gumbo is good as well as cold beer and easy to get to-- have to stand inline to place order, but that's part of ambience

while the food is good, it's not exceptional, as the pricing would suggest. I also am not a fan if waiting 20 minutes in line JUST to order. Maybe it's because I get the Reuben, which is great, but not worth the wait. Also I think there roast beef gravy has changed, which I used to enjoy on the fries.

You can't go to New Orleans and not eat a Po'boy. The large Po'boy was huge, so my husband and I spilt it. I ordered a side of fries and my husband ordered a side of gumbo. The shrimp Po'boy was was very good. My husband loved that the gumbo was served with more gumbo than rice.

A not so hidden gem for visitors and locals alike, you can't go wrong with this neighborhood classic. Ask a local where the best place to get a Poboy in town is and you may get a list of places as long as your arm. If you are looking for a local spot where you can't go wrong for an... More

If you ever get a chance to come to New Orleans you have to go to Parkway Bakery&Tavern. The poboys are truly amazing. I don't know how they do it, but they are good. We have tried all their poboys and have never been disappointed. The sandwiches are enough to make two from one. You can get seafood,cold cuts. This... More

I've been coming to this place for nearly 50 years and my relatives longer than that. While the owners are different over that time, this place has the best poor boys in New Orleans, especially the roast beef. We ate here twice over the course of five days, the first time picking up and eating at City Park. We even... More

This place is amazing. We were lucky enough to come when it wasn't too crowded, find a cozy spot right away, and have wonderful service by the super friendly staff. The "surf and turf" po boy was ridiculously awesome! So was the meatball. Do yourself a favor and order the fries with gravy and cheese. My husband and I inhaled... More

Don't eat here if you want a neat, orderly sandwich. If you have to have precisely placed evenly cut squares of deli meat... This is not your joint. HOWEVER... If you love juicy, dripping, lovingly heaped meaty deliciousness that will ooze gravy down your arm and require seven napkins a bite... THIS PLACE IS FOR YOU! come here hungry...preferably in...
