Wow! Bring your appetite and probably a wet wipe. Big sandwiches with 3 different cheeses and lots of juice. You'll need several napkins, as these things are incredibly juicy. Not greasy, juicy. They provide a stack of the small cocktail napkins (?) at the tables....More

I had surf-and-turf po’ boy and also tasted BBQ po’ boy. Both were excellent. The sauce on the surf-and-turf was to die for. They have great local beers as well. Must eat in.
