Get a taste of New Orleans at this new Decatur po’boy spot

Po’boys, other Cajun specialties on the menu at The Po’Boy Shop

A new eatery in Decatur is making good on delivering what it advertises in its name.

The Po’Boy Shop, which officially opened yesterday at 1369 Clairmont Road, offers a variety of po’boy sandwiches including shrimp, catfish, oyster, muffaletta and the Debris, made with roast beef and gravy and covered in horseradish sauce.

Mark Ferguson, who owns the restaurant with husband and wife Dave and Linda Schmidt, said customers from Louisiana should be especially pleased to find all the sandwiches are made with Leidenheimer bread, which is made in New Orleans.

Also on the menu are platters, Cajun specialties including red beans and rice and gumbo, wings and salads. Sides include shop fries, which have the texture of french fries but are cut potato-chip thin; Cajun meat pies; and jalapeno hush puppies. Also look for daily and weekly specials.

The Po’Boy Shop, which will eventually serve wine and beer once it secures its liquor license, will be open daily from 11 a.m.-midnight.

1369 Clairmont Road, Decatur. 678-974-8725,
