If I told a fellow New Orleanian I had never been here, their response would be, “You’re kidding, right? It’s that popular a po-boy shop. And very old. Established in 1911.
I normally eat healthy during the week and hit the gym every day, so I don’t balloon up to 300 pounds, but there was a reason I had to get here today. More on that in a bit. I had to get our order to go since my regular dining partner couldn’t get away from working at home today.
We decided on:
And this. This was the entire reason for todays food debauchery:
They’ve been making this poor boy for years, and for years I’ve been saying I’ve got to get one. Today, it happened! Turkey, dressing and cranberry sauce on a po-boy. Sounds like a beautiful thing!
Of course being packed to go everything doesn’t look as appetizing, but everything was quite good.
I don’t like fried pickles. At all. My dining partner loves them and said they were good. I took her word for it.
The jambalaya was pretty good. Nothing extraordinary, but good.
I would have preferred the shrimp on the shrimp po-boy fried crisper, but they were seasoned well and the sandwich was loaded with them. We enjoyed it.
The Thanksgiving po-boy was very good. Full of white and dark meat turkey, in chunks like it was rough cut right off the bird. Yummy.
Finally, the bread pudding was excellent! EXCEPT, and this is just me, it was loaded with raisins. That’s traditional, but I don’t like raisins. The rum sauce was delicious!
Great place! I highly recommend it.
