This review is for tourists of NOLA, not locals. I was told I must try a ‘po-boy’. Our friends wanted to go here for ‘the best po-boy’. So we hailed a taxi and were on our way. When we arrived there were no Oyster po-boys...More

Parkway has always been a favorite. Their Po-Boys are BIG. Flavor is excellent. Bread; crunchy on the outside, soft in the middle. Oyster Poboys only served on Mon & Weds. Always a line close to lunch time so try to go early or late. Lots...More

The roast beef was fantastic— lots of sauces (homemade tartar and remoulade were great!) Great bread pudding as well.

Get here! It’s simply the best po boys ever. Oyster ones are amazing but only available Monday and Wednesday, FYI. Roast beef with gravy -dressed- is incredible too. And best fried pickles I have ever had. Of note, get a small po boy— which is...More

Its a big place--and in summer has tents outside with fans. Dont worry there is always a line--it moves fast. You order, pay and they call your name--at the pick up window. So, somebody needs to hang out. Fried pickles and remoulade where have you...More

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
