Ever wondered how the “po’boy” got its name? And what exactly is a “po’boy” anyway?
As legend has it, po’boy sandwiches come from humble beginnings, dating back to New Orleans circa the early 1990s.
Railroads were the thing of the day, and railroad conductors were in high demand. Two such men – Benny and Clovis Martin – decided to abandon their train conducting ways in favor of owning a restaurant. Some months later, railroad conductors across Louisiana were on strike, and in order to support their buddies, the Martin brothers began serving free sandwiches to their railroad brethren – “po-boys” many called them. The hearty sandwiches they were served quickly took on the name of “po’boy sandwiches” and the name stuck.
Today, you don’t have to be a poor railroad conductor to appreciate the delicious, humble flavors of a po’boy sandwich!
