Blink and you'll miss it, but hubby and I have been going almost weekly to Gulf Coast Po' Boys at 312 West Bay Drive in Largo, for a few months now (look for their outdoor seating and plantings). Having been to New Orleans a few times, I am no expert, but we have really been enjoying this very friendly, clean establishment.
I'm hooked (no pun intended) on their sweet, succulent shrimp, which I get as their Fish Camp entree, rather than on the bread. Their homemade, light vinegary slaw is so good I drink the juice! Their potato salad is homemade as well and excellent, too. Hubby gets their catfish po' boy and raves about it, proclaiming it a lovely, toothsome piece of blackened fish with their roulade and spicy mayo. He gets their fries, and says they are terrific as well.
Seating is very limited inside and out - we have sat outside in very rainy weather and managed to stay dry. When we brought our dog, a large bowl of water was brought out for her. Always a good sign!
