Several NOLA Poboys recipes have been passed down through generations to its founder, Murray Tate. These cherished family recipes, including chicken and andouille gumbo, seafood bisque, and specialty breading, are closely guarded secrets. Using a proprietary blend of spices, NOLA Poboys breading comes in mild or spicy.
Our restaurants focus on the traditional New Orleans poboy sandwiches, including cold, hot, seafood and specialty options such as Chesesi ham, ‘da-bris’ pot roast and our signature fried Louisiana shrimp. Specialty poboys are smothered in the Company’s proprietary gumbo or bisque. In addition to its top-selling poboys, NOLA Poboys also serves starters and sides, including red beans and rice, gumbo, jambalaya and more. With its flagship location on Bourbon Street, NOLA Poboys serves a cross-section of America. As a result, NOLA Poboys has been able to test its menu and products on tourists as well locals.
