Try Our Delicious Po’Boy Sandwiches

 In Harbor House Seafood and Steaks Food

The history of the Po’Boy sandwich originated in New Orleans. It is often called the Poor Boy sandwich.  It was created by two brothers, the Martins, in New Orleans to feed streetcar workers that went on strike. Another version of this story claims, the two brothers opened a shop and sold sandwiches served on French bread with different fillings their customers requested. During the Depression, many poor boys loved  this tasty inexpensive sandwich called Po’ Boys.

A Po’Boy is served on crispy French bread called a baguette. The outside crust remains crispy and the inside soft. They fill this delicious sandwich with fried or grilled seafood, shrimp, chicken, oysters, bacon, or beef. This sandwich is served hot. Sometimes, called an oyster loaf, or fried oyster sandwich it originated in cities like San Francisco.
