Do you know I have lived my entire life (minus college) in Houston and had yet to visit an Antone’s Famous Po’ Boys?! Yes, I am almost ashamed to say it and knew I had to right that wrong. So, I immediately linked up with my buddy Nick so he could show me the ropes.
I made my way from the Original (ham, salami, provolone, Chow-Chow relish, mayo and pickles), to the Turkey & Swiss (oven-roasted turkey, Swiss cheese, mayo, bread & butter pickles), then on to sample a few hot choices with the Beef Brisket (slow roasted beef brisket with Cajun mayo, lettuce tomato), their Cubano (house roasted pork loin, ham, Swiss cheese, spicy mustard, pesto, dill pickles), and ended with a Fried Catfish Po’boy. I think I did pretty good for a first visit!
Everyone knows that the bread makes the Po’boy and Antone’s Famous Po’ Boys gets their bread from Royal Bakery in Montrose and Slow Dough Bread Co. It’s slightly toasted and chewy on the inside. So, when the ingredients in the middle are fresh and local, a mighty tasty sandwich is the result.
The iconic Antone’s Famous Po’ Boys is turning 55 and they are celebrating by offering some major
