This is the best roast beef Po'boy you'll ever sink your teeth into. It's not cheap but worth every penny. Portions are large and always fresh. (WE usually split a king-sized sandwich between us.)

You need to get there early at lunch time or the line is out the door and rightfully so. Parkway makes the best Po Boy sandwiches pilled high wit your favorite foods. From the fried shrimp or oysters to deli meats they can't be topped.

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.
