    We’re well aware this is going to rile up some locals, but here goes: This place has the best po’boys in all of NOLA. Grab a stool, order a large shrimp and an Abita, and you’ll see things our way. Read more

    The Surf & Turf Poboy is great, but I prefer the shrimp-only version — it stays nice and crispy. If they've got fried pickles, get 'em along with a long neck of Barqs. Read more on!!

    One can avoid Parkway's line (Barack Obama ate there, so now everyone does) by calling ahead to place their order at the bar. The surf and turf po-boy is a must-try. Read more

    When I think about what I miss most in NOLA, this is the place that comes to mind. Sit at the bar, order a Surf & Turf, relax, and get ready to enjoy a great po'boy. It'll be worth the wait.

    In the Bayou St. John neighborhood, this place rocks for watching college football and the Saints, while eating an extraordinary fried oyster-and-shrimp po-boy. Low-key enough to take kids, too. Read more

    Serves po'boys subjected to chef-ly attention in a cleaned-up facsimile of the original, with a dark-wood bar attached to a bare-bones dining room outfitted with long, plastic-top communal tables. Read more

    Debris fries are yummy! We also enjoyed shrimp poboys, potato salad and bloody Mary's. Good convo with the locals and good service at the bar!

    The surf and turf dressed is the way to go here but you can find better just shrimp po'boys and just roast beef po'boys elsewhere in town. Order the bread pudding and have them warm it up. It's great.

    The shrimp po boy with creole mustard is the! Must try!! If your looking for something a little lighter try the po boy caprese. Cookies are just 75 cents!

    My family loved the catfish poboy, surf n turf is saucy and messy (be prepared), this place has a lot of hype, be prepared to wait

    Try one of the seafood or meatball po boys. If you get there during prime eating times, be prepared to stand in line for a little while. It's worth the wait.

    Had my first NOLA po boy here and I'll never be able to enjoy any other. I got the surf and turf and it was incredible! Oh baby, that gravy puts po boys on another level!

    For vegetarians, the caprese really hits the spot! Add shrimp for a healthy option that leaves you wanting more!

    Get the Surf and Turf and if you're feeling italian get the meatball sub! Be sure to Try their heavily soaked rum cake, it's to die for!

    Oysters only available Monday/Wednesday. The shrimp is good but the line gets crazy-long. You can go inside to the bar and order from the same menu.

    Go there with a group and get a bunch fo Po'boys cause they are all good. Sweet potato fries are nothing special(frozen/not home made).. the bread pudding is a little dry but the sauce is AMAZING

    Sausage alligator po'boy 👌🏽. Plus get the half and just get some chili fries! It is so many of them that you can share!

    Popular spot for po boys. The surf & turf (roast beef & fried shrimp) was pretty good. Eat in the bar to avoid the counter line.

    Po'boys are the specialty here at this revamped neighborhood joint that used to have a beef-gravy-dispensing faucet on the premises. The faucet is gone, but the po'boys are just as good as ever.

    I've been too hundreds of poboy joints in NOLA. This I the best. No matter how long the line it's worth it. If you don't have a beer, locals drink Barqs.

    If you go to New Orleans, you need a po' boy. We live for our sandwich shops. The Parkway is located on Bayou St. John.

    The roast beef with gravy po'boy is amazing. Get the gravy on the side for your sweet potato fries.

    I mean, po boys of course. Insiders tip: avoid the long line by sitting at the bar and ordering there.

    Half fried oyster and half fried shrimp with a side of gravy. Off menu but bartender lady will help you out

    When you order something fried, it's lightly battered. You don't lose the shrimp or the flavor in an inch of breading!

    Some days the line can be out the door, but Parkway certainly is among the best at what they do.

    While everything is good, when they have soft shell crabs, that is the best thing they make!

    You cannot find po-boys like this outside of New Orleans. Cherish every last bite and be merry!

    My personal favorite is the shrimp poboy and sweet potato fries with a Barq's Red Cream Soda!

    A length of fresh, brawny bread is loaded with beef so tender that it seems not to have been sliced but rather hand-pulled, like fine barbecued pork, into myriad slivers, nuggets, and dainty clumps.

    The surf and turf is awesome. The fried shrimp or the roast beef are equally awesome.

    It seems as if everyone raves about the roast beef, but the seafood poboys are where it's at!

    Roast beef not as flavorful as I'd hoped, but shrimp po boy and sweet potato fries are where it's at!

    You can't go wrong with the huge oyster po'boy fried to just-right crispiness. Perfect to take out to the nearby bayou. Read more
