The Food speaks for itself.

The owners are classic New Orleans the food is even better. Often hailed as the best Roast Beef Poboy in all of NOLA. I agree with that. It is best enjoyed with an ice cold Barque's Root Beer. The other sandwiches are great here as well, but 9 times out of 10 I get the Roast Beef.

We went specifically for the shrimp po boy and I was unimpressed. Wilty looking lettuce and small shrimp- nothing special.

I went there on my first day in NOLA and absolutely loved their po-boy. It is said to be one of the best in town and it's better than others i've seen! There was an event when we were there so it was kind of busy but the staff was nice!

Shrimp po'boys and fries with gravy and cheese all washed down with a half bottle of Chardonnay. All you need is a defibrillator at hand just in case. Cat was exceptional. Will be my last stop before leaving every trip.

This place is great. The surf and turf touched me in ways I didn't think possible. Homemade potato salad and a bit of pudding for dessert. Can't beat this place for some great comfort food.

We took a road trip to New Orleans for the weekend. My sister had heard good things about Parkway Bakery & Tavern and wanted to check it out while we were in town. Since we arrived in town around 1:30 PM we decided to head straight there for lunch. This was probably a great time to go because the line... More

The food in this place is simply extraordinary! The breads, hence "bakery," makes you wanna throw your super market breads away once you get home. A MUST dining option when you are in NOLA!

4 stars because it's good but not ground-breaking. I find it harder than I expected to rank and critique the city’s po’boys. I love the sandwich as an art form and I love the sandwiches in New Orleans. Each one has something that sets it apart, and something that keeps it from being truly sublime whether it’s stale bread, or... More

Parkway Bakery was fantastic! I had the roast beef w/ gravy po' boy, and it was outstanding. I'd recommend the regular size unless you're really hungry, as the large was quite a meal. The location was not convenient for us, we took a cab from the French Quarter there but had trouble finding one to take us back. We ended... More
