Po Boy fixings

Just noticed at my neighborhood Berkeley Popeye's that "Po Boys are back." They are back with cabbage/cole slaw instead of lettuce (and tomato?). Is cole slaw a common Po Boy fixing?

I don't recall that from my 2 visits to New Orleans in the mid 90's (although I only ate po boys at one place: Streetcar Sandwiches on South Carrollton at the end of the St. Charles streetcar line).

Popeye's has shrimp, chicken and catfish po boys. The shrimp used to be pretty good, for fastfood and California. It had roundness as Paul Prudhomme said.
