    While I do love "meat and bread" po boys this example of a loaded sandwich really works. The pot roast is so rich that it needs some greenery to cut through the heaviness.

    Pot Roast for a sandwich?
    That just seems wrong.

    No. It's a classic Po' Boy. Very yummy. Can't beat a roast beef with debris and gravy. Except, maybe, a shrimp Po' Boy. The key, though is the bread. If it ain't Leidenheimer bread, it ain't worth eating!

    No,it's delicious. Quick Chek, a local 7-11 type store , has a 6" pot roast sub for $3. Quite good. Can't beat the price!!

    Gendusa makes a really good loaf, and Wild Flour is the bread in the picture. It's great too. Leidenheimer is the most popular though. I'd love to see new/old school bakery Bellegarde tackle the po boy loaf.

    I get a pot roast sub often at a place near me. It comes with grilled onions and provolone cheese on a toasted roll. I'd never heard of using pot roast this way, but it is absolutely delicious.

    On those rare occasions when I have made a pot roast and actually have leftovers, I have been known to make a sandwich or two from them. It's a favourite of mine. I have not run across any place this far north that makes one, though. That would be nice!

    Don’t get me wrong, I love pot roast,
    I’ve just never considered it sandwich material.
    We almost always had it for Sunday dinner.

    Yes it is. Quick Chek even adds small potatoes cooked with the pot roast.Delicious!

    The pot roast pictured is cooked for 12 hours in a broth with red wine reduction, garlic, carrots, and demi glace. It's superb. The roast beef po boy is near the top of the hierarchical order of New Orleans sandwiches.

    Yum!  Wishing I was there.
     
    The sandwich looks a little over-dressed for my taste but I'd have to eat 2 or 3 to be better informed.
     
    There are places here that claim to use the Leidenheimer rolls, just as there are cheesesteak shops that claim to use Amaroso rolls from Philly.  And I think they do, sometimes.
     
    I don't remember having pot roast for dinner growing up.  What I remember was the leftover pot roast in the fridge for the next several days that we used for sandwiches.  I would come home from school and chip some of the beef, spread mayo (probably Blue Plate) on white bread and add dill pickles.  One of the best after school snacks I made myself.  Never thought of gravy and debris, though.

    Near the top????  What's the competition (near the top)?

    in NOLA? Darned near every corner store in the city and most old school restaurants. Domilise’s is world renowned. And Parasol’s may well make the best roast beef po' boy in the city, (so hard to say when there are so few bad ones!).

    Check out the review for the Parkway Bakery & Tavern, specially the Surf ‘n’ Turf Po Boy (roast beef and shrimp).

    Parkway is overhyped. It's the one po boy shop that is on the big coach tourist buses schedule. Greyhound style coaches regularly disgorge in front of the operation creating massive lines. It's kitschy and would be a good spot to take aunt Glenda who's visiting from Topeka but it's not in any serious "best" conversations.

    Ahh, I misunderstood.  I thought the ranking that was being suggested concerned the roast beef po boy v. the Muffaletta, Catfish Po Boy, Shrimp Po Boy, etc.
     
    Good information anyway - thanks.  
     
    If you order a RB Po Boy in New Orleans, does it come standard with gravy and debris or is that specified extra?

    Standard issue roast beef comes with a skift of gravy, slices of roast beef, and lettuce, tomato, pickle and mayo. You can specify "debris" and get added tidbits of beef. Or you can say "debris only" which is just what it sounds like. The po boy pictured is pot roast from a big chuckeye with Creole mayo, arugula, and pickled purple onion. It's superb.

    I don’t know “aunt Glenda from Topeka,” but Uncle Michael gives it a 5 star or Legendary rating here on Roadfood. The review says “best of the best.”

    Parkway is second tier. It's not terrible but there are a lot of better po boy shops in New Orleans
