Probably not anymore, but I imagine that statement was true before this neighborhood restaurant became so popular. Parkway Bakery and Tavern is located off Canal Street on Hagan Ave. in New Orleans in the Bayou St. John neighborhood. Sometimes it is crowded and sometimes it is very crowded,but It is worth the wait! They've added seating space and parking which is an improvement. If you sit in the front section (tavern), there is full table service. You also pick up to go orders here. If you sit in the self-serve dining room, you stand in line to order at the window. We've learned to call in our order if the line is too long. Our favorite sandwich is the shrimp poboy, add pepperjack cheese, no ketchup. You can't get much better that that, but if you don't like seafood, there are other poboy choices such as smoked alligator sausage, fried sweet potato, vienna beef hot dog, roast beef with gravy, just gravy, and surf and turf (roast beef topped with golden shrimp covered in gravy) to name a few. Home-made bread pudding, banana pudding, and rum cake round out the menu. The restaurant is closed on Tuesday. If you are lucky enough to eat there, be sure and look at how the restaurant fared during Hurricane Katrina.
