Best Po' Boy Sandwich in LA?

any suggestions for a good po' boy sandwich? i think i've become disenchanted with the mediocre offering from the Gumbo Pot at the Farmers Market/Grove, and i'm looking to try a different place. especially interested in any suggestions located on the Northeast side of town.

Thanks in advance fellow Chowhounders.

  1. I have heard there are some places in Pasadena. Try a search. I usually go to Uncle Darrows when I am on that side of town. Good Luck!

    1. If you're ever in the SFV--my friend enjoys the oyster po boy at Les Sisters on Devonshire.

      1. Not the Northwest side, but Bay Cities deli's Poor Boy is every bit as good as the Godmother.

        1. Little Dom's oyster po' boy is really tasty.

          1. They are not bad at Ragin Cajun in Hermosa Beach.

              Hands down - Creole Chef. Only place I've found that comes close to anything from Nawlins.

                It has been closed since about March and were looking for a new place to open. Have they found one?

                  I'm so sad that I'm right now just hearing about this for the first time.

                    it was (and is still) a huge loss.
