Parkway Bakery & Tavern

New Orleans' Most Famous Po'Boy

Parkway Bakery and Tavern first opened for business in 1911, however it didn’t take long to become a New Orleans icon. Best known for their legendary poor boy sandwich, invented during the 1929 Streetcar Strike, Parkway Bakery and Tavern’s top selling version features delicious roast beef in gravy on fresh baked French bread and “dressed” with lettuce, tomato, pickles, and mayo.

Nearly a century since the strike, Parkway Bakery and Tavern is still standing and remains a landmark to old-timers and youngsters alike. With an average of 1,000 customers per day, these Poor Boys are a piece of historical and culinary wonder you can’t miss.

We're not the only ones who love them!

Parkway Bakery and Tavern is a favorite of President Obama and Alton Brown and has been featured on The Food Network, Eater, Conde Nast Traveler, Men's Health, and Bon Appetite. Their Po'Boy has been called the "Best in New Orleans" by USA Today, Time Out, AFAR and Lonely Planet.
