    So confirmed that this joint tastes like the Po' Boy in sandwich form?

    Was finally able to find it last night. Worth all the hype. Spicy one is bomb. Going to try the plain one today with the chick fil a honey roasted bbq sauce.

    Somebody get their "Fried Hard / Cooked Hard" and give a review please.

    It needs more crispiness.

    Pardon my ignorance but what is all this talk about the strength of the frying/cooking? I’ve seen it mentioned multiple times over the past pages.

    Nah..completely diff taste.. the po boy just tenders...which is still good...

    This a whole nother level of juicy, crunchy... only thing missing is that ‘spicy’ taste...but it’s legit all the same...

    Frying harder gives it more crispness and crunch

    To ME, the chicken isn't crunchy enough.

    IMagine how crispy the bottom of a typical Popeyes Bone-In Breast is. That is what I want from this sandwich.

    So I suggest asking for it to be fried hard (Well Done) to maximize the crunchiness.

    Interesting. So again, pardon my ignorance, what specifically makes a Po’ Boy a Po’ Boy?

    I would say the French bread-style baguette makes it a Po Boy. Otherwise, it's a standard sandwich
