Why Call It A Po-Boy?
Why Call It A Po-Boy?
In Louisiana, we love our po-boy sandwiches. You can call it a po-boy or a poor boy. You can even spell it po' boy if you like. It doesn't matter, because a po-boy by any other name or spelling is still just as delicious. I've never given any thought as to why it's called a "po-boy" until today, so I did a little digging to see what I could find out.
