Hmm.

As mentioned, Casemento's closes during the summer (no "R").

I love Acme. Another one not mentioned is Parkway Bakery and Tavern. Two thumbs up!

Another vote for Danny & Clyde's.  Some of the best oyster po' boys in NOLA.  Don't overlook these gems.  Not only good eating but a good story to tell.

I don't get the Danny & Clyde's thing, but maybe that's just me.

St. Charles Tavern has a pretty good oyster po'boy, and an excellent shrimp po'boy. Great fried catfish, too.

Coop's on Decatur is excellent, as well.

I don't do a sauce on my oyster po'boy. It's just lemon, salt & pepper, and hot sauce. Sometimes not even lemon.

We have a Katrina survivor in Cincinnati who runs New Orleans to Go and my favorite oyster po' boy sauce she offers consists of cayenne pepper, mayo and lime juice - it just makes the fried oysters so much tastier and enjoyable.

Cassamento's is great! 

Bozo's is good too.

Mandina's is probably a good choice (love that neighborhood)!

For an oyster poorboy - I just like the bread buttered on each side, a sprinkling of lemon juice, hot sauce, and a little catsup

So many places, but these are the ones I've actually had oyster poorboys:  

FQ - Acme and Johnny's always had a nice one

MidCity - Mandina's, Parkway Bakery

Cassamento's - they do a great job coating and frying their shrimp and oysters, but their "loaf" isn't a true poor boy, more like Texas toast 

I don't guess most visitors get over to the Westbank  - but the DiMartino's family which has three locations, do great oyster poor boys and their roast beef is even better

Oyster po boy topping buttered bread, pickles, hot sauce, maybe ketchup.
If we're at home a twist is butter bread, bacon and bleu cheese.

I vote for Johnny's, Bozo's, Seafood Galley.

I'll go along with this. I do like Bozo's, as well.
