Killer Poboys Restaurant Review

: If you want to make a mark in the competitive po' boy market in New Orleans, you better find the right balance of tradition and innovation. Enter the new-agey Killer Poboys, a place that lives up to its lofty moniker. Unlike the original location that operates in the back room of a French Quarter bar, this branch, while not big on ambience, is bright and comfortable. Tradition comes in the form of the great French bread, crispy on the outside and still soft enough inside. Innovation happens between the bread, with such selections as Black Beer Debris (debris is made of those full-flavored flakes of roast beef that fall off during the cooking process). This is the only place you'll find a cheddar omelet po' boy or a roasted sweet potato po' boy with pecan spread. The smothered greens on the side are about as Southern as it gets. You won't find alcohol, and the only desserts offered are cookies. This is definitely not your grandfather's po' boy shop.
