I'm a Parkway po'boy fan just like Barack Obama. It's a messy sandwich but a good one that leaves both palette and belly satisfied. I dined there during the first extended period of time I spent in the city. I've been back many times. Let me tell you, Wednesday is the day to go, especially at 4:45PM: no lines.
Parkway is closed on Tuesdays, so don't plan a visit then. On Wednesday though, for now at least, they are offering a special: the Thanksgiving. It's eight inches of baguette packed with stuffing, dark meat turkey, gravy, and a spread of cranberry sauce. It's a messy meal (I used a fork) but boy is it good.
My favorite Parkway sandwiches in order of preference: Thanksgiving, Reuben, BBQ beef, beef, hot turkey. I only get them dressed with letuuce, tomato and pickles, when dressing is an option. No mayonnaise for me.
You might be surprised that this meat-adverse epicure (no need to bring up my affection for Bud's Broiler's hot dogs), enjoys Parkway's menu. I appreciate a job well done.
The regular Thanksgiving po' boy is priced at $7.32. Large is $10.79. For once, I'm thinking about ordering a large next time. Pity my poor stomach.
