ThIs will become a regular restaurant on our list of musts when visiting New Orleans. Hands down best shrimp poboy I have ever had! Tasty turkey and sausage gumbo too. Come hungry! Worth the wait!

A great place to visit when the weather is beautiful as they have a great outdoor covered patio. Poboys are big and loaded. There’s always a line but that’s the sign it’s good. I had the fried shrimp poboy and sweet potato fries; my son...More

Best roast beef po-boy around. Get just the regular size...it's pretty big. You usually have to wait in line, but it's worth the wait.

First time at Parkway, I have been to serval places in Nola to have poboys. Parkway checks off all the necessary criteria. There are certain fundamentals of a proper poboy: 1. Leidenheimers Bread 2. Dressed meaning: mayo, iceberg lettuce and tomato. 3. Gulf shrimp. This...More

Our Lyft driver recommended this out-of-the-way local spot, so we were eager to try it. Expect a long line to order, a short wait for your food and a largely underwhelming poor boy. We shared a shrimp and a roast beef and neither were exceptional....More

I my and my friends ordered the Beef po boy... God we came to this place because it's famous, and have good reviews, but the meat was tasteless not even salt or pepper, it was plain. The only good thing is the drinks.

This is a local hot spot and you may have to wait in line but it is worth the wait. We enjoyed the roastbeef dressed po-boy along with Barq’s and the bread pudding. Side of fried pickles too. Treat yourself to the best!

They have cole slaw which was delicious but definitely has mayo in it! I can’t imagine you wouldn’t be able to get mustard and definitely hot sauce! The catfish was my favorite it’s fresh and cooked perfectly! Good luck

Kids are fine. Just like at Applebee's or Olive Garden. The bar area might not be a good fit for kids, but you can take drinks anywhere in the building.
