Radosta’s has been in business at it’s current location for nearly 35 years but 15 years ago it underwent a drastic change. Don Radosta made the decision to switch from being a small grocer to a Po’ Boy joint. While Radosta’s had always made cold Po’ Boys for their deli counter, this switch allowed Radosta’s to move onto more glamorous fare. Thousands of satisfied locals sure are glad they did. Roast Beef is the most popular sandhwich for good reason. The roast beef is butchered and cooked in-house and is very moist and rich. The best item on the menu is the “Don Special”, named after owner and proprietor Don Radosta. It consists of fresh Italian sausage, swiss cheese, an olive spread, and freshly cut vegetables. Despite all of this attention paid to meat, Radosta also has pretty good shrimp and oyster Po’ Boys. Radosta’a provides surprisingly delicious fare for it’s residential Metairie location. Radosta’s receives 4 out of a possible 5 stars for it’s excellent roast beef and special sandwiches.
