One of the best sandwiches I've ever had! Cheap and delicious food, fun atmosphere, and I would definitely go back in a second!

If you have not been to Parkway to get a Poboy your life is not complete! We had the Oyster & Shrimp combo.. the best in NOLA by far!

My all time favorite place to visit while visiting NOLA, and the Shrimp Po-Boy' are always right on time! I always order the large and can never get though all of it, so of course I save the rest of it for later. There's always plenty of space to relax and enjoy your meal, indoors or outdoors on the inclosed... More

We sat at the bar, so they brought us our food - all of which was great! The fried pickles and sweet potato fries were both yummy! I had the alligator sausage po' boy with a half bottle of wine - just the right amount of both. Mike, behind the bar, was very entertaining, and he gave us Parkway hats.... More

You grab a menu, get in line and order. They call you when your food is up (surprisingly quick). The employees all seem to really enjoy there work and I was impressed by the way they seemed to be a happy and well-oiled machine. Our group of 8 ordered several different PO-boys, a burger, hotdog, gumbo (just do it!), fried... More

In town for a quick weekend getaway, wanted to do all of the touristy stuff, so we had to hit Parkway for their legendary po boys! We were staying in the French Quarter, so it was about a 15-20 minute street car ride to Jefferson Davis Pkwy. From there about 5-10 walk up a few blocks. It was our first... More

Get out of the quarter and go where the locals get their po boys. This place is only about a 5 or 10 minute ride from downtown. They use the ONLY bread that should be used which is from Leidenheimers bakery in NOLA. Perfect filling to bread ratio and the fried shrimp were not those crappy cheap popcorn shrimp but... More

We hit this spot every time we come to town---sometimes more than once! Poboys are out of this world! The wait is long, but the food is worth it, and the line has a genial feel. Seating is family style---long tables with paper napkins---and it is a great place to drop into conversation with locals.

Stopped for lunch and was luck that it was Wednesday as they have oysters on Monday and Wednesday. The oyster po boy was messy but so delicious. Will go back to try many other varieties.

Here is a good tip for travelers to New Orleans. Locals do not eat lunch in the French Quarter. Locals eat here. And the tourists have kind of figured that out. Get here early and avoid the line Eat like a local and get: Fried Oyster Po-boy or Hot Sausage Po-boy, some Zapps chips, and a Barq's Root Beer or... More
