The most famous poboy place that you are probably referring to is PeGe's...Ray's PeGe. http://rayspege.com/

I went there in college in the late 70's/early 80's and my mom and uncle went there in college in the early 60's. It was first Ray's Grill, right across from ULM (then NLU) and by the 70's was out to the end of Desiard. Since then, PeGe's was sold. An old employee opened the Magic Grill, which I hear has food more like the old PeGe's. (That's said PG's.) The W. Monroe location isn't the original and the shrimp poboy was never what everyone ordered, back in the day. Maybe it's cuz we were poor college students. LOL! The main sandwich was the hot beef, sort of a French dip that came with awesome gravy that you dipped the sandwich into. If I went back now, I don't know if I'd go to PeGe's in Monroe, or the Magic Grill. I would definitely order the hot beef dip!
