Po’ boy loyalty is fierce in NOLA: ask a dozen locals where they chow down on the loaded French bread sandwiches and you’re likely to get 12 different responses. But many residents and tourists alike can agree that one of the very best is to be found at Parkway, a family-run joint that’s been slinging excellent, seafood-piled po’ boys since 1911. It’s tough to decide between the fried oyster and fried shrimp iterations, but we usually go for the latter, the plump crustaceans sheathed in a crisp golden crust and tucked into an airy loaf and “fully dressed” with lettuce, tomato, pickles and mayo.

Our New Orleans restaurant is a local family dining tradition, and our Poor Boys are so good that even President Obama has eaten here! Visit us today to experience poor boys as you never have before.
