Best Po-Boys in New Orleans
According to poboyfest.com, po-boy sandwiches are “the shotgun house of New Orleans cuisine.” All we know is you can't visit New Orleans without splitting one with your BFF. Oyster, shrimp, soft-shell crab, roast beef with debris, meatball….Here's who made our best "dressed" list.
Landry’s Seafood House
The Two-Handed Shrimp Po-Boy at Landry’s Seafood House in the French Quarter is reason enough to come to New Orleans this year. It comes with French fries, onion strings, and a fabulous view of both the Mississippi River and Jackson Square. Get ready to fall in love.
Felix's Restaurant & Oyster Bar
At Felix’s, you don’t have to choose between a fried shrimp or a fried oyster po-boy. The Felix Special gives you both. We recommend ordering it with cup of gumbo, which also earned a place in one of our Best of Guides.
This huge po boy is sure to satisfy your hunger. We especially love how the bread is always soft and fresh. It's served with french fries and dressed with coleslaw, tomatoes, pickles, onions and remoulade just the way we like it.
Acme Oyster House
Acme doesn't just serve up crab meat in their po boy, they give you an entire crab! This dish is just as good as it looks and as usual it's dressed with lettuce, tomato and pickle. We recommend trying it with the TABASCO® infused mayo too.
Grand Isle Restaurant
The Shrimp Caminada is named after Cheniere Caminada, a small fishing town west of Grand Isle that was destroyed by an 1893 hurricane. The shrimp is sautéed in a spicy citrus butter and served on two slices of Leidenheimer French bread alongside an herb slaw of cabbage, carrots, red bell pepper and fresh herbs.
Court Tavern PoBoys
Po Boy is in their name so it must be good. Our favorite is the shrimp remoulade with cold, boiled shrimp tossed in a secret Creole remoulade sauce. We recommend getting it dressed with lettuce, tomatoes and pickles.
