Located in Bayou St. John, this corner icon was recently on Food Network’s Food Feuds for their roast beef po-boy. Parkway Bakery and Tavern features a number of regular and jumbo sizes of the Crescent City’s favorite sandwiches, plus they’ve got the bar up front when you want to wet your whistle.
The group I was with ordered a variety of po-boys–all of which were piled high with fillings. Among us, we had the roast beef & gravy, meatball & marinara, Reuben and fried shrimp po-boys. My roast beef took 16 napkins–a sign of just how good it was (a true po-boy connoisseur figures deliciousness is proportional to the mess). The sweet potato fries were excellent and the regular fries were pretty good, too. Two bottles of Barq’s root beer washed everything down with perfection.
