Queen’s Louisiana Po'Boy Café

By Amy Sherman

A trip to New Orleans generally requires airline tickets, but Queen’s Louisiana Po-Boy Café offers an authentic taste of the Big Easy in the Portola neighborhood, conveniently located on the way to SFO. It’s all there—po’boys made on genuine Gambino’s pistolets (French rolls), freshly fried hush puppies, and yeasty beignets that will have you dusted in powdered sugar after just one bite. Strands of carnival beads add color and flair to the clean and tidy, but no fuss, serve-yourself spot.

the crowd

Young, old, white, black, Latino, Asian. Workers from the neighborhood park next to a couple of suits. Everybody’s having fun.

catering perk
Spice up your next office party or Spring BBQ with 10% off Queen’s Louisiana Po-Boy’s catering (orders of $500 or more). Think fried-to-perfection platters of oysters, chicken tenders, shrimp and po’boys.

on the TV
There’s always a quiet buzz in the background, unless of course, the Saints (or the 49ers) are playing.
