Po Boys / Plate Lunches - One Of The Area's Most Delicious Traditions

A trip to New Orleans Plantation Country wouldn’t be complete without devoting a meal to one of the area’s most delicious Louisiana cuisine traditions:  the Louisiana Po-Boy.  This classic, French bread sandwich dates back to 1929, when two brothers created an inexpensive meal to serve New Orleans streetcar drivers who were on strike.  Today, a variety of Louisiana Po-Boy sandwiches can be found on menus across the region, like fried shrimp, roast beef and gravy, hot sausage and more. Visit one of the many Po-Boy shops in Louisiana, and order it “dressed” to have the full experience.  Yum!
