Sammy's Deli

In the March issue of OffBeat Magazine, we take a look at Sammy's Food Service & Deli, a neighborhood joint on Elysian Fields that serves up some of the best renditions of down home cooking to be found within the city limits. If you're craving po-boys, fried chicken and seafood and are looking for one restaurant that does them all well, then Sammy's is your place. Check out our full review by clicking here.

You know what is a sign of really good fried chicken? When after you've eaten your way through three different po-boys, a seafood platter, mustard greens, macaroni and cheese, and cornbread dressing, and then your teeth crunch into that fourth and final chicken wing on your plate, you sit back and watch the steam waft up and away from the juicy flesh. Yeah, that is damn good fried chicken.

Parkway and Parasol's may receive all of the press for their roast beef po-boys, but Sammy's own version undoubtedly deserves to be included among the best. This roast beef is sliced and dressed with enough gravy to barely avoid falling apart. Plus, besides being delicious, the roast beef is quite photogenic.

And for you gluttons looking to go out with one last hurrah before Lent, look no further than the Ray-Ray, which features crunchy Southern fried chicken breast topped with grilled ham and melted Swiss. We may have a new po-boy contender for the title of Fat Kid Special.

The length and breadth of their menu is also a thing of wonder, and its all good. Not sure how they do it.

It's also on Elysian Fields, the street of the best high school in the state.
