Acme Oyster House has an awsome oyster po-boy and great red beans and rice like my moma made.

Acme Oyster House

so does Crabby Jacks, but they are in Jefferson and not open Sunday.

Crabby Jacks - Jefferson, LA, 70121 - Citysearch

and lets not forget about Casamento's who are known for oysters

Casamento's Restaurant in New Orleans, Louisiana

but if you want the best oyster po-boy or roast beef po-boy, you need to eat at my house.

1 qt fresh shucked oysters
2 cups yellow corn flour mixed with equal parts, (1tbsp each) kosher salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and garlic powder.
Melted butter
French bread
Shredded lettuce
Sliced tomato
Sliced pickles
Lemon
2 cups peanut oil


Heat the oil to 375%
Dredge oysters in flour mixture
Flash fry oysters 8-10 minutes, and drain on paper towels
Slice French bread in half and toast in oven until golden brown
Remove bread from oven and butter each side
Place as many oysters as you can on bottom slice of bread
Top with shredded lettuce, sliced tomatoes, and sliced pickles

Slice po-boy in half and enjoy with an ice cold barq's root beer or a Dixie beer if you can find one

Acme is overrated and certainly not worth the wait to get in. I'm plenty happy with Felix's right down the street.

You can do Acme in Metairie....and it beats standing in line with all the other tourists.

Best Po Boys in New Orleans would be at either Franky & Johnny's or Domilise's, both Uptown.

When we asked around we were told Johnny's Po-Boys in the French Quarter area was the best--which is also written up in a lot of the travel books. I was very pleased with the oyster po-boy!

If you are into po-boys and/or sandwiches that scream New Orleans then you owe it to yourself to also check-out Central Grocery and the famous muffalleta sandwich--but you'll probably need two people to finish it!
