Wallet Card Wednesday: Sloppy Sammitch Edition

I spurn others’ flagrant posting of food pics on social media, but there are some things we have down here on the Third Coast that merit a little showing off. Like this:

This here is what we call a “ten-napkin” poboy. Roast beef, dressed (that’s mayonnaise, lettuce, tomato, and pickles or “all the way” to most people), and sopping wet with juices and debris (pronounced “day-brie” which is really just all the little bits of fat and awesome that fall off the roast beef). There are plenty of other types of poboy including hot sausage, catfish, softshell crab, shrimp, oyster, and the ever-popular Peacemaker (that would be shrimp and oyster), but none of these are quite so sloppy and visceral an eating experience as a properly done roast beef.

The tater tots were a personal preference.


  1. Ruined perfectly good hot roast beef with that mayo.

  2. Tater tots should be standard. Potatoes are at their finest right out of the oven and in tot form.

  3. I second the no no on the mayo. I nearly cried seeing that fantastic wallet card (I don't have one) on that particular plate of food. I'll take that PoBoy hold everything but the Roast Beef and Day Brie, with the side of tots.

  4. Not sure what looks more beautiful... that iconic Griffey or the scrumdiddlyumptious poboy sitting next to it.
