Dr Bob Art, Crabby Jack's, New Orleans

Crabby Jack's on Jefferson Highway is part Dr Bob gallery, part crazy-fab poboy emporium.

If you're thinking of having a day of Jacques Leonardi places feeding you (which, let's face it, would be a completely wonderful day), it's going to be lunch here at Crabby Jack's, and supper over at Jacques-Imo's.

This is maybe the best poboy in town. It's between this and Bevi. Yes. Here, the fried shrimp, roast beef, fried green tomato with shrimp remoulade. Crazy-messy and luscious and hot, it's all just right.

Last month, nola.com ran If po-boys were invented in 1929, how was Louis Armstrong eating them a decade earlier? putting into question the poboy creation legend that they were given the name from the 1929 streetcar strike.

LA Magazine -- that's Los Angeles, not Louisiana -- writes that they've found the best poboy there, and it's the 'gumbo mumbo':
Shrimp, chicken, ground sirloin, sliced beef hot links, onions, and bell peppers are tossed in a vinegary sauce and—through some miracle of physics or perhaps sheer force of will—held together by two firm hunks of house-baked bread. It’s less a sandwich and more a soulful stew precariously bound in starch, seeping harmonious notes of acid and heat.
