Parkway Bakery & Tavern. Parkway has a long-standing reputation of being one of the best po-boy spots in the city, and it is beloved by locals and visitors alike. They have an extensive menu with all of the classics plus some unique additions like alligator sausage, caprese and fried sweet potato. Their fried shrimp and oysters are crispy and light, their roast beef is tender and sloppy with gravy, and their bread is fresh and crisp. (538 Hagan Ave)
