What to Eat: Po’ Boys
When in New Orleans, Po’ Boys are a must eat. These sandwiches were first created to feed striking streetcar workers in 1929, many of whom were unpaid, picketing laborers free of charge (hence the name). Po’ Boys are served on crusty French bread and filled with roast beef and fried seafood (typically shrimp). Popular dressings are lettuce, tomato, pickles, and mayo. Johnny’s Po’ Boys is the best place to try these iconic sandwiches. Operating in the French Quarter since 1950, this family-owned lunch counter has nearly 50 different Po’ Boys.
