  • Delicious food, slow service

    The food was very delicious and for a really good value. The main issue is that they do not seem to have enough people working in the kitchen. They just couldn't get food out fast enough (we were seated right by the line so could see everything happening). We waited a long time for our meal, but they gave us some free drinks to compensate us and the servers were super attentive about it. We will definitely go back and hope they can improve the wait times. Great addition to the neighborhood.

    I have been waiting for Po Boy Jims for a while now. They had the sign up during the construction phase so I have been waiting for them to open. They did not disappoint. Everyone at table (including a couple of picky teenagers) enjoyed their food. You have to get the wings! The service was prompt and extremely pleasant. We will definitely be back again. They also have some really cool artwork on the walls that is for sale.
