When in NOLA we always went to Mother’s for Po Boys. After discovering Parkway, we won’t go anywhere else now. It’s off the beaten path and is not within walking distance of any of the tourist areas downtown. But it is well worth the drive. Usually jammed at lunch with everything from suits and dresses to flip flops and T... More

Loved the place. In the old days Parkway was the go to place for a great po-boy. Now days just a tourist trap. Last po-boy I had there I didn't even finish. It was bland and boring. Even heaps of hot sauce didn't help. sorry to see this happen to this once great institution.

Eager to try Parkway's famous po'boy sandwiches, I arrived early enough to find they were not open yet. I was greeted outside by Pat, who let me come inside and wait on the air conditioned patio. I saw the staff prepping the fresh loaves of french bread they'd be using for the day's orders. At 11AM sharp I was allowed... More

Loved the tender shrimp Po' boy sandwich, and the fully dressed roast beef was amazing too. Great atmosphere, everyone is there for the food!

A great place for a classic New Orleans poor boy sandwich. Arrived around 2:00 pm but there was still a sizable line. The restaurant is located in a neighborhood a bit off the beaten path, but has been around forever. Don't be discouraged by the line, as it moves fairly fast and the food is worth the wait. Had the... More

What a great place. We were staying at Harrah's and the staff there said we must go to the Parkway for the best poboys. We took a 10 minute trolley ride and then it was about a 10 minute walk to the Parkway. We had no idea what to expect, but we were not disappointed. We got there at 11:00AM... More

We used to live in New Orleans, moved 2 years ago. But I still crave the BEST PO-BOY you will ever eat! Park-way has the BEST Po-boys in New Orleans, we should know because my husband was born and raised there and also cooked in the city for over 30 years, I am a transplant and lived there 20+ years....
