“Very good po'boy, amazing gumbo and bread pudding!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

We had the roast beef po'boy, alligator sausage and turkey gumbo, and bread pudding with rum sauce. Yum!!! The only thing I would change is I wish the po'boy had some spicy mayo or horseradish. It needed a little heat.

“How have I missed this before???”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

This was my 4th trip to NO, and for whatever reason I had missed out on two things: 1, Po Boys and 2, Parkway Bakery and Tavern. Wow. I had the surf and turf and was incredibly impressed. As others have said, the bread sets it apart. Delicious. It's REALLY off the beaten path and we drove through a sketchy neighborhood to find it. We arrived around 11:30 on a Saturday and walked RIGHT in. No waiting at all. As we ate, it started to get a line, but nothing like what I'd read about. We had the bread pudding and the banana pudding. Both were good, but I didn't think either was amazing. Worth the trip!

They have the best Po Boy in the city hands down. You cant beat the atmosphere. Just a great place to relax and enjoy great food and great company.

“SAID TO BE BEST PO BOYS”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

We took the street car to find what was said to be the best Po Boys in the Big Easy. It was fun. big parking lot if one drives and an historic old place. Obama went there when he was last in ton.
For the unknown a Po Boy is a Hero, or a Sub or a Grinder to us in other parts. There the sub bread with many things including fried shrimp.
I prefer a Philly Cheese Steak from Pat's or a grinder from Koch's but this was worth the effort.
