    As someone who visits New Orleans fairly often (at least once a year) and it being where my wife was born & raised I am often craving “real” po boys here. Well, that wait is over. B’s is the real deal from the fry recipe they use for their shrimp & oysters to the bread (Leidenheimer french bread, flown up fresh. Accept no substitutes!) to the butcher paper wrapping.

    Nothing against my other favorites Jemil’s or Where Yatt Matt’s but having a dedicated restaurant here in the neighborhood that makes them as good as I’m used to having at The Jimani or Domilise’s if just fantastic.

    Do yourself a favor and go get a Po Boy, dressed with an Abita or Saz. You won’t be disappointed if you’re looking for the real deal. :)

    Thanks for the review. I’m really looking forward to trying it!

    I know the prices for the seafood po boys are “market price,” but do you happen to know what they were (ballpark estimate) when you were there?

    Hi Sue,

    If I remember correctly the fried oyster “full” came out at $15 and the full size fried shrimp was $12 or $13. I’m sure you could ask your server and they’d be able to let you know. :) Next time I’m really looking forward to getting down on the roast beef Po Boy. My father in law had one and it looked perfect. Nice and messy!

    That’s – that’s helpful! The reason I asked is that I read a review somewhere where there was a complaint that half a shrimp sandwich was $12 and I was wondering if the whole sandwich was seriously $24. Perhaps they were unhappy with the size and assumed it was a half at that price. Who knows. I find $12 reasonable; $24, not so much. :) Will definitely check it out!

    Happy to help Sue! The seafood is always “Market Price” so fluctuations in that price will inevitably have an effect but $24? No way. Also, I’m not sure how anyone could assume the full was a 1/2. B's Po Boys

    So odd, it’s a link to a public dropbox file. Here’s a link to it on my Flikr page: https://flic.kr/p/W5nxVv
