good local poboy spot.
this place is right in the CBD, and a lotta locals go here for lunch. similarly to mother's, its a cafeteria line and is sorta chaotic, but unlike mother's the prices are reasonable & the food is better. i got a roast beef for 5 & change, and its much larger and better than mother's watery version, tho the gravy is little on the weak side (its no Parasol's). only tip -- ya gotta make yourself heard when ordering and paying. otherwise youll be standing there all day.
I used to live in New Orleans and now, whenever I visit from California I head right to the P&G for a Fried Oyster Po-Boy! This is a great place for a VERY filling lunch at Great Prices! That's why the locals crowd in there at lunchtime!
Mom & Pop atmosphere.
The food is home-cooked, steam table served and as good as mom's home cooking. Portions are plentiful and you'll be hard pressed to eat it all. The only drawback is the hard French bread. It's not glamorous by any means, but if you're after value and good food, this is the place for lunch.
