Authentic Shrimp po'boy?

  • 3

Been to Lafayette, LA a couple times this past year and talk about goooood!
Any place around here?
I've had a couple weak, unseasoned ones...in Bethesda (LA Express and) Arlington (Harry's)...
If you know of any other places...please let me know.
thanks!

  1. RT's in Del Ray and Southside 815 in Old Town both do shrimp poboys with remoulade on french bread. I think RT's is better, but not as good as their oyster poboy.

    1. There are a lot of places around here that have them:
      Southside 815
      Acadiana

      I think are good and would certainly be better than Harry's, but have never been to Lafayette in LA.

      1. the only halfway authentic cajun/creole type food i've had in dc that i didnt make myself was at SBC cafe in herndon. if i remember correctly they have po boys there. and really awesome gumbo.
