Famished late one afternoon last month, I decided to finally stop in AJ’s Famous Seafood and Po Boys after driving by it a gazillion times. The restaurant is small. Besides a booth and a large round table up front, most seating is tables for two along the back wall. It did have a seafood / beach bar decor.
I ordered the Shrimp Po Boy to go, as it was a short drive home. The sandwich remained firm, not soggy. The shrimp were large and plentiful and the bread was crispy on the outside but soft on the inside. Don’t you hate when you take a bite and the contents spill out? Not with these Po Boys. The price was around 7 or 8 bucks including a large side of fries. You can also order dinner platters which come with choice of a couple sides. Besides Po Boys and Platters, they have NOLA favorites like the Muffuletta, Gumbo and Jambalaya.
I spied a Gator taco on the menu and look forward to trying that soon. I hear they sometimes have a special Gator chili on the menu for lucky patrons.
