“What's not to like?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2014

I find it difficult to not stop here when I'm in the area at lunch time. I would like to try all the items on the menu, but I just can't seem to get beyond the po'boy sandwiches. Never had a bad meal here. Nothing fancy for décor, but the food is great, servings generous, and prices moderate.

“A little slice of home!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

I was in Portland on business, had time to kill before a meeting and decided to venture off the beaten path of the waterfront. This turned out to be the best decision, as I came across Po' Boys and Pickles, and as a native from the land of po' boys, decided to go in and see how a place in Maine would stack up to the standards I was accustomed to in LA. Le' me told you, cher, they done so good! I had the Peacemaker (fried shrimp and oysters) and it was awesome! But the key to a great po' boy is the bread, and they nailed it by using Leidenheimer's! I can't wait until my next trip to Portland in June!

“Great food, fun & casual”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014 via mobile

Overall we had a great meal - ordered a few different Po'boys, red beans and rice, boudin balls - all were delicious. Only complaint was the girl at the counter who was pretty snarky and impatient. The rest of the staff was super nice.

“Great gumbo and sandwiches”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2014

This little restaurant on outer Forest Avenue, just a few minutes out of Intown Portland, serves up a mean gumbo, especially great in frigid weather, and the frozen take-home version is equally good...Their sandwiches, new Orleans style, are truly delicious, right down to the big crusty rolls...Outdoor seating at picnic tables in warm weather is very nice
