I have been to poboy restaurants all over the city of New Orleans. But surprisingly never to Parkway Poboy's. Parkway has over the years won in local contest as one of the best poboy spots in the New Orleans metro area. I really loved the location and the ambiance of the joint. Felt very old school. The memorabilia fun to... More

My sister, nephew and I recently ate here at the recommendation of an acquaintance. I'm glad we listened! This is a relatively small place which is very casual, ordering at the counter and pick up when your name is called. There is inside and outside dining. We all had shrimp po' boys, and they were delicious. We ordered sweet potato... More

Post-Katrina, the number of old school Po-boy restaurants that achieve the same level of food quality has definitely dwindled. Memories fade, styles change, but a baguette had better be a baguette and not something closer to a hotdog bun. Parkway achieves this, and probably the only way they could do better is to still be baking the bread themselves. Three... More

This was my first time eating here during the week, and it was nice to get a table by the bar instead of waiting in line outside. Good happy hour specials from 3 to 7pm. Monday is also Service Industry night, which I need to check out another day. Remember that this place is closed on Tuesdays! Awesome food -... More

Stopped by for lunch & a Brew. This place is casual and relaxed. Great sandwiches and sides. Full service bar too. The décor is filled with New Orleans nostalgia.

If you've never been to Parkway Bakery and Tavern, well, you haven't lived. It's the place for smiles, laughter and good food. You won't leave hungry that's for sure. There is plenty of parking and ordering is quick. You will not be disappointed.

If you want authentic poboys in NOLA Parkway is the place. Parkway is located a few miles from downtown and well worth the trip. The catfish is cooked perfectly and great on the fresh french bread. You can choose from many options including, shrimp, crawfish in season, turkey, beef, BBQ, oyster..... They also have a full bar. Be sure to... More

Two of us went there for lunch and amazingly just walked in ordered, and sat at the bar area. You are supposed to order from the bar but I didn't know. We shared a roast beef poboy and it was decent. Lets face it , the city has good food almost anywhere so it was good but to wait in... More

Went on a Sunday for lunch and line was outrageous - almost an hour to place our order, Two of us had the roast beef po boys, which were excellent, as usual. Disappointed in the shrimp po boys, though. Batter not seasoned enough and entire thing a bit dry. Would have gone elsewhere, but on way to Storyland at City... More

This place has been doing Po Boys forever and know what they are doing!! Highly recommend the corned beef - its made in house and melts in your melt. Hubby liked the surf and turf - home made roast beef and fried shrimp!
