Just Imagine


Originally called the "poor boy," this sandwich has distinct Southern working class roots. There are many stories regarding its origins, but the most famous in these parts is that it was created in 1929 by the Martin brothers. They created the sandwich after the railway workers in the area went on strike. They gave away the simple but delicious sandwiches to the strikers and would holler, "Here comes another poor boy!"

Po-boys are still a local favorite in Louisiana and a must-try for all visitors. From fried shrimp or crawfish to roast beef, you can't go wrong!

Find restaurants that serve po-boys as well as other Louisiana cuisine below.
