What the Quarter lacks in po’boy options, it makes up for in quality with two locations of Killer Poboys. While most po’boy shops stick to the classics, this place serves a few more gourmet options, topped with things like glazed pork belly and smoked salmon. If you’re looking for classics like grilled shrimp or roast beef, however, they have those too. Head to the main shop for the full menu, or go to Erin Rose for a beer with your po’boy if you’d rather keep barhopping.
