Avery’s is a favorite po-boy shop in New Orleans, one of the few that does standards and specialities with equal success. By specialty, we mean a break from the usual lettuce and tomato dressing that is typical. 

Our favorite is the Oysters Rockefeller Po-boy, which adds creamed spinach and Parmesan cheese to the fried oysters and bakes the po-boy loaf into garlic bread. The beautifully fried oysters and sensational sauce make this goopy sandwich as hard to put down as it is to pick up.

A favorite of ours, the BBQ Shrimp Po Boy is better than we’ve had anywhere else. Aside from a troupe of expertly cooked shrimp and a mouth-watering butter sauce, it’s one of the few that you can pick up easily in your hands. The hollowed out roll holds up under the sauce, snugly corralling the shellfish.

Another famous selection is The Sandbag, which features gravy-soaked roast beef debris, fried pickle chips, provolone cheese, and a drizzle of horseradish cream — all tasty, gluttonous tweaks to the classic roast beef po-boy. The juicy beef and creamy horseradish are an obvious marriage, and fried pickle chips add texture and flavor that make this sandwich something really special. 

Onion rings have a crunchy buttermilk batter that stands up to the thick slices of onion within. They come with horseradish cream, which is just right for dipping.
