Get the Roast Beef Po' Boy at Parkway Bakery & Tavern
When it comes to po' boys, everyone has his/her favorite spot. Mine has always been Domilise's--until I went to Parkway Bakery & Tavern on my way back from City Park. Like Domilise's, it's off the beaten path, but well worth it. I ordered the roast beef po' boy and, since it was the special, the fried pickles. I suggest you do the same. I tripled bagged the duo and made my way back to my hotel. There, I unpacked my goods and found my po' boy still very much intact and my pickles crisp, warm, and tangy.
There are myriad variations of po’boy at this Mid-City institution, but the one to order is the roast beef with gravy. And the answer to the question of whether you’d like your po’boy dressed (i.e. with mayo, tomato, lettuce, and pickles) is always yes.
