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.

            2. I disagree with most of the mentions- Uncle Darrow's is just OK to me, it's my last choice for Creole/Cajun in LA. Last I head, Creole Chef in Baldwin Hills has closed its doors due to a robbery. And I think everything else on the Ragin Cajun menu is better than their po boys. I would go to La Louisanne on Slauson & Overhill, or Harold and Belle's on Jefferson for great po boys. But both of those are sit down restaurants, I believe take-out is available. For take-away, I go to Bayou Grill on La Brea for po boys, but I don't care for their gumbo. The fried seafood po boys are very good.

                I was just mentioning Uncle Darrows for the po boys. Places that are not currently open do not count! What ever happened to 5c's, I know they moved to the IE has anyone been since they moved?

              2. New Orleans in Hermoda Beach, there gumbo is also DELICIOUS!

                    Thank You Jeet, that was the place I was thinking of in my post above.

                        The olive salad in that second picture looks like a muffalette po' boy of some kind... wow.

                      2. Free great r and b souls blues jazz at la louisianne near slauson and la brea. Saw some nicely fried things and po boys. I go Mondays with dollar red beans and rice and wing plates. Anybody have the po boys? A mediocre po boy would be improved by the excellent music.

                        1. $6 poboy during lunch.
