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.


Join us at Tricky Fish in Richardson, Texas this week for lunch and try one of our amazing po’ boys! Served with fries or our house slaw, you’ll be rolling back to the office.

The happy hour deals are good too!” – QH in Forney, TX
