    This place is great. The sandwich is good and the price is fair. Also, try their soup!

    it was ok, not worth the ride if you're staying in the heart of the French Qtr. I had the meatball po-boy, extremely messy and just OK.

    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.

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

    Katie Arnold · February 12, 2015

    Fried pickles are a must

    Shrimp po boy. Skip the line by ordering to-go from the bar on the side

    Surf & Turf only way to go

    The poboys are huge and sloppy and delicious! The roast beef was incredibly moist and the fresh bread soaked up all of that gravy making for great, sloppy bites. And bread pudding is mouthwatering.

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

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

    Kevin Skobac · January 3, 2015
  • Katie A.

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

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

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

    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.

    Eric D · November 1, 2014

    This place continues to be one of my favorite poboy joints in the city. The poboys are huge and sloppy and delicious.

    Sweet potato fries with provolone cheese and gravy! Soooooo good!!!!

    Brandi Stewart · September 26, 2014
  • Peter Z.

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

    Peter Zimmerman · September 21, 2014
  • Flavia S.

    I don't really get the fuss about this place. Don't get me wrong, the food is decent but compared to any joint from NC, food here is tops mediocre. Other than that, the sweet potato fries are good.
