    Where can I get the best Po Boy in Baton Rouge?

    I am specifically looking for a classic roast beef po boy with the gravy and everything. one made to order and not one that has been sitting there under a heat lamp.

    Yea Bear's didn't last long.

    I personally like Rocco's on Drusilla Lane but haven't had the roast beef.

    Best French Dip I have had in Baton Rouge is Jay's Bar BQ on Government St.

    Sammy's Grill on Highland makes a great Prime Rib Poboy which also comes with Au Jus.

    Can't think of a great gravy roast beef. I go to New Orleans for those.

    Crawford's II on Starring lane has a buffett on Friday evenings. Their catfish is fantastic. The place is a dive. I mean a real hole in the wall, but the food is good.

    the best home cooked food usually comes from dives and hole in the wall places. I've lived in the nola/sorth shore area for most of my life so I know how good fish made in a shack can taste.

    Roccos for roast beef po-boys, now that The Library is gone. Italian sausage is good too.

    Georges for the best Shrimp poboy.
