On the RB subject...

I'm a child of the late 50's...
Where every corner that didn't have a Catholic church
had a barroom or mom and pop grocery.
...and they all sold a homemade slow roasted RB po'boys...
NO DELI MEAT BACK THEN.

Fast Fwd... to today's bean counting joints...
OMG... DELI MEAT and Hoagie bread YUCK!!!
Anybody mention SUBWAY?

Untied 119 asked about Parran's
Overrated... A product of Tommy Fitz
Advertising pays off!!!

R&O... good beef but the bread leaves a lot to be desired.

chawlie...
Mentioned Rodosta's
worth the trip to Old Metry.... :D

But here is the hint I learned as a kid in Da Parish...
The Camellia Club... First generation Italians
(the place where the Hi-Lan Bakery later named Randazzo' King cakes were born.... but that's another story for a different day)

Slow roasted roast
Lienhemer (sp?) Bread
Mayo, light gravy, lettuce, tomato and pickles
assembled then the most important step...

Wherever you go make sure they use real RB and...
no matter what they say have them ...

BUT THE ASSEMBLED SANDWICH IN THE OVEN FOR
... 20 SECONDS TO SLIGHTLY CRISP UP THE BREAD...

aboy

NO DELI MEAT BACK THEN. (Irish Channel home with 3 bars & 2 corner
groceries no more than a quarter to a full block away, I'll skip the 2 block options)

aboy (Thanks very much, I think we both know what a great roast beef poboy tastes like especially back in the pre-chain-food days in New Orleans, U119)
