Parkway has been in business near bayou St John for decades, but it is only in the last 15 years or so that it has gained widespread popularity outside that area. The distinctive yellow restaurant has copious amounts of indoor, outdoor, and bar seating to handle this popularity. Once you bite into a Parkway Po’Boy you realize one thing, this is what a Po’ Boy should taste like. Seafood and condiments blend between two pieces of french bread forming a harmonious relationship of flavor. The main reason for Parkway’s excellent Po’ Boy’s is their high quality ingredients. Parkway uses seafood that is noticeably fresher than almost any other Po’Boy joint and their roast beef isn’t too shabby either. One fan favorite at Parkway is the the Surf N’ Turf Po’Boy, which consists of roast beef underneath a mountain of golden shrimp all of which is slathered in gravy. The perfectly fried and crispy shrimp Po’Boy would be my last meal on death row. Parkway is simply that good. If you come to New Orleans and only go to one Po’Boy shop, make it Parkway Tavern & Bakery. Parkway is perfect: 5 out of 5 stars
