BB and Cindi Minton have been serving great food at BB’s Po-boys & Seafood Restaurant for 27 years.
BB’s sells only Gulf-fresh seafood, and tables hold containers of real butter, not margarine.
The roast beef po-boy is stuffed with roast beef that spent 14 hours slow roasting in the oven in BB’s tiny kitchen.
The litmus test for me for any restaurant that sells po-boys is the fried shrimp po-boy, and in that category, BB’s is over the top. Their fried shrimp po-boy ($10.95) is made with perfectly fried, flavorful shrimp on great bread and dressed with fresh lettuce, ripe tomatoes and mayonnaise, just like it is supposed to be.
Never miss a local story.
There is an interesting variation of the shrimp po-boy on BB’s menu, and it is called the Shopped ($13.95). It is made with crispy fried shrimp, bacon and provolone cheese. Wow!
I am a sucker for a roast beef po-boy, though, and could not resist trying the one served at BB’s. It was loaded with succulent roast beef, enough gravy to require a half roll of paper towels and shredded cabbage instead of lettuce. It is a world-class roast beef po-boy for $10.95.
The soft-shell crab po-boy ($11.95), and the Surf and Turf ($13.95) po-boy, made with shrimp and roast beef, both earn high marks from returning customers.
BB’s also offers a selection of platters, including a seafood combo and country fried steak with prices from $8.95 to $27.95. The menu also offers nine side dishes, salads, a gumbo that is renowned and deserts that deserve some consideration.
I’ll be going back soon for the Surf and Turf po-boy, which is made with an amazing combo of roast beef and fried shrimp. Shazam!
