New Orleans Po’Boys in Richardson, Texas

New Orleans Po’Boys are a sandwich that can be enjoyed by anyone – anywhere, anytime. What originated as a simple way to feed the “poor boys” of New Orleans, is now one of the most beloved items on our menu at Tricky Fish. In fact, we’ve got a whole menu of delicious, authentic po’boys for you to choose from:

·     Fried Shrimp or Fried Catfish: one of the most classic ways to enjoy a po’boy, ours can be ordered with flaky fried catfish or fried Gulf shrimp, lettuce, tomato, pickles, and tartar sauce.

·     Roast Beef: Not really into seafood? Order our traditional roast beef po’boy, served with thin slices of roast beef, provolone, and our horseradish sauce.

·     Fried Oyster BLT: If you’re looking for something a little different, be sure to grab the Fried Oyster BLT! Tricky Fish tops it with bacon jam (what dish isn’t good with bacon jam?!), fried oysters, and tartar sauce.

·     Blackened Chicken or Catfish: Simple, satisfying, and a little lighter than its fried counterpart. Order the blackened chicken or catfish with horseradish cream sauce, lettuce, tomato, and pickles.

We also realize that the real star of a po’boy is the bread, so you’ll find our French bread to be nice and crusty on the outside with loads of softness inside.

The Perfect Lunch: Po' Boys at Tricky Fish

Po’ Boys are a New Orleans favorite dating back to the early 1900s when former railroad conductors turned restaurant owners, Benny and Clovis Martin, began serving free sandwiches to some of their conductor buddies who were on strike. Many referred to these guys as “poor boys,” and the free sandwiches quickly took on the name of “po’ boy sandwiches.” At least that’s the story we’ve heard.


No matter the origins, po’ boy sandwiches are a staple in New Orleans, and now that Tricky Fish is open in Richardson’s CityLine complex, you can now get your hands on some authentic po’ boys yourself! We are your New Orleans style restaurant!


Each of our delicious po’ boy sandwiches starts with fresh, simple ingredients. Our mama told us to start with simple ingredients, and not to over-complicate things. (Always listen to mama.)


Lettuce, tomato, onion, and pickles sit a top a crusty French bread loaf, which is then filled with your choice of the following:


·     Fried Shrimp or Catfish: Easily our most popular po’ boy, this traditional favorite features flaky, crispy seafood coupled with our homemade tartar sauce. We love the shrimp, but the choice is yours!

·     Blackened Catfish or Chicken: Looking for a lighter option? Ditch the fried and go blackened! Our blackened catfish and chicken is marinated then cooked to perfection and the po’ boy is coupled with a zesty horseradish cream.

·     Roast Beef: Tender roast beef and provolone melt in your mouth! Horseradish cream perfectly compliments the beef.

·     Fried Oyster B.L.T.: Give our “oyster loaf” a try! You’ll love the flavor of the fried oysters paired with our savory homemade bacon jam and tartar sauce.
