Guy’s Po-Boys (#208, 8/4/12)
Quite a blow when you have a shrimp po-boy from Crabby Jack’s on your mind, then you find out they’re closed for vacation. Damn. I decided I was getting a shrimp po-boy no matter what. The wait at Mahony’s was close to an hour, so Urban Spoon suggested Guy’s on Magazine. I gave it a run; they told me 15 minutes on the phone. I ended up waiting about 45 minutes anyway; I can’t figure it out. It was packed at 2 p.m. on a Saturday, and I think they served everybody, including people who came after me, before finally giving me my sandwich, assuring me the wait would be worth it. I just brought it home to eat and it was pretty good. If Crabby Jack’s is the 10 of shrimp po-boys, then this was probably about a 5.
