    So here’s the thing with po-boys – they’re like pizza is in NYC. You can get a lot of good po-boys in New Orleans, and everybody that you talk to is going to have a different favorite, but few places have GREAT po-boys. Here, you can’t go wrong with the classic Golden Fried Shrimp Po-boy, and their Surf and Turf Po-boy (as in fried shrimp and roast beef) is rather tasty as well. Then wash it all down with a Barq’s root beer in a glass bottle (which always, inexplicably tastes better). They also have luxury of being nearby Bayou St. John, which is nice to eat by, weather permitting.

    There are a million places to eat po'boys in New Orleans, but this might be the one I liked best--big fat, fried oysters wedged inside pillowy bread, nice creaky, wood-floor kinda vibe, and outdoor seating.

    Fried shrimp, smoked alligator sausage, and straight-up gravy are among the 20-plus variations of po’boy for sale at this Mid-City institution (est. 1911). If you order only one, we say go for the roast beef. Flaky French bread from Leidenheimer bakery is just substantial enough to soak up the juices from tender slices of beef doused with gravy and debris (the chopping block scraps)—though it’s best to eat quickly—and dressed with mayo, tomato, lettuce, and pickles.

    The home of the Po Boy. Roast beef, catfish and many other great Po Boys. Fries, cheese fries and wet fries (with RB and gravy) are fantastic.

    If you can manage to find a seat, get a shrimp po'boy. You can eat them fried all by themselves, or attempt to stuff a dressed sandwich in your mouth. (Good luck with that.) Check out the patio seating if you can, the courtyard is pretty interesting.

    Hands down THE best po'boy I have had the pleasure of wolfing down during one of my visits to NOLA. You absolutely have to try the "Surf and Turf" po'boy which has big succulent fried shrimp plus roast beef covered in gravy made fresh in heaven.

    Off the beaten path for tourists, Parkway Tavern is where locals go for po' boys. Keep an eye out for the Thanksgiving-themed po' boy, but keep in mind that it won't be available after Turkey Day.

    Parkway is well known because of the there awesome sandwichs... i agreee they are amazing i took a cab there from the french Q because i didnt know better. Now i know you can take the street car from canal st to N Jefferson Davis Parkway(if you think thats to complicated just tell the driver where u wanna go he will know what to do or you can google map it and you will see what i mean)

    they have awesome shrimp poboys and the line moves fast. The bar next door serves cheap beer and plenty of it. get the bread pudding and give the Lady a funny name for when they call to let you know your foods up
