Not within walking distance but if you have a car and don't mind waiting in a long line, you will be rewarded with an awesome poboy sandwich!!! We had the Roast Beef Poboy and a Shrimp Poboy and they were both outstanding!!!! Location is not great and seating could be better, but the food makes up for the negatives!!!!

I was determined to eat at parkway based on reviews and it being my first visit to NO. Great food with local, down home earthiness. My only issue was how to get there from the French quarter. We walked to canal street and started waiting for a street car. We changed our minds and took a $9.50 cab ride. Next... More

Street parking was fine. We've been there twice and have always found a spot right in front of the restaurant. We arrived at 2 on a Saturday with maybe only ten people in front of us in line, all holding menus. As always, there were customers who arrived at the order window to then take minutes deciding what they wanted.... More

We had a sausage one (which at the advice of... More

Yep, Parkway Bakery and Tavern is a po-boy institution in New Orleans. You won't go wrong with any po boy that you order. In fact, as their sign says, "Keep Calm and Eat Po-Boys". I had the roast beef. That's it, no garnish. I topped it off with some hot sauce and dug in....tender, juicy, and full of flavor. Parkway... More

Parkway Tavern is one of my first stops when I arrive to NO. If you're looking for a fancy place this is not the place, however if you are looking for having an AMAZING po´boy, this is the place. I always get their classic with shrimp and roast beef which tastes like heaven!

As my fiance and I traveled across the country we tried to make an effort to find really great, inexpensive food, places that locals would typically go. Parkway Bakery and Tavern was the perfect find and definitely lived up to all of the great reviews we had read online. The surf and turf po-boy was out of this world and... More

Food was great. Tasted fresh, shrimp were a nice size. I got a large and ate the whole thing. So many different types of Po'Boys to choose from. I will definitely return on my next trip to New Orleans.
