I know that perhaps this is a strange question, but does anyone from the Washington/MD area know of a good place to find a decent Po'boy? I am craving one like something fierce this afternoon so I'm trying to find a place somewhat nearby that I can convince the hubby to go to....

Oh, it's good to like food again! :D

Popeyes?

I've never had a Po' Boy, I think I've seen it advertised at Popeyes though.

Nooooo... A Po'boy is a sandwich filled with mayo, shredded lettuce, and fried goodness generally on the order of fried shrimp, oysters, catfish or something that tasks good breaded. It's a New Orlean's specialty. Mmmmm....

Damn. Now that's a good question.

I don't know, I've only ever had a po'boy in New Orleans, so I've been googling. Bardia, Acadiana, Johnny's Half Shell, Local 16, Hank's Oyster Bar...

I've never been to any of them though. :( My father in law loved Johnny's Half Shell. Most places only seem to have oyster po'boys though.
