And we're happy to report it was well worth it!To take down a sandwich like this you're going to need a fistful of napkins and a small bottle of Louisiana hot sauce. Po' Boys are to New Orleans what Cheese Steaks are to Philly - they're most dominant and delicious sandwiches in town. A Po' Boy is not a dainty sandwich - it's a giant submarine packed with fried...
