This is a must-stop if you fall in love with po-boys the way we did. It's a bit of a trip if you're staying in the FQ like we were, but sooooo worth the trip. You can take the street car on Canal north ($1.25...More

When you want the very best in the poboy world, you come to Parkway Tavern. Just don’t come on Tuesday because they are closed.

Stumbled upon this place and glad we did. Delicious! Had the Surf and Turf po-boy and the Oyster (only available on Mon and Wed) po-boy. Sat at the bar...the vibe was great and the staff was top notch!

They have cole slaw which was delicious but definitely has mayo in it! I can’t imagine you wouldn’t be able to get mustard and definitely hot sauce! The catfish was my favorite it’s fresh and cooked perfectly! Good luck
