Duck po-boy?

Has anyone ever tried the duck po-boy at Crabby Jack's?
A guy I work was raving about it, but it seems like it might be too rich to me. Anyone had it? I heard they have one at Grande Isle too.

    1. I loved it. I didn't think it was too rich or heavy. What's your definition of "too rich"?

        I guess by too rich, I was thinking if it would like coat your mouth with fat or grease. Don't get me wrong, I love a good roast beef po-boy with lots of gravy. I'm just not sure what to expect with duck in a sandwich.
        But it sounds like it's worth a shot if you both loved it too.

          It wasn't fatty or greasy at all! You had to use a lot of napkins while eating it, but that was a good thing! Enjoy!

            Love the duck poor boy at Crabby Jacks and don't they have rabbit too or was that a special. It was really good.

              The duck po-boy is fantastic, and the rabbit is too, as long as it's breast meat. Make sure to ask.

                  i think it's a panee rabbit po boy.

      2. I thought it was great - very tender and seasoned well, and not too greasy or fatty. My husband had the rabbit po boy and that was very good as well. The rabbit is breaded and fried, so different from the duck. It's hard to compare the two - I definitely enjoyed tasting both!

        1. This is my po-boy of choice at Crabby Jack's, and has been for the last few years! The rabbit is also good, as others have noted, though they seem to run out of both pretty regularly.

            They do run out of both frequently. My fall back option is thre blackened gulffish w/ remoulade (i think that is what it is topped with) but on a poboy instead of as a plate lunch. Really really good backup plan.

              their blackened fish here is really really really good.
