One of the top ways South Mississippians consume shrimp is in the classic fried shrimp po-boy.
Of course, you have to enjoy it with an ice cold Barq’s Root Beer in a bottle.
I can make a pretty good po-boy, but it is one meal I prefer to go out to eat, and there are plenty of places that serve good ones, too. Pirate’s Cove, 208 Menge Ave., Pass Christian; BB’s Po-Boy & Seafood, 1300 Bienville Blvd., Ocean Springs; Po-boy Express, 2422 Government St., Ocean Springs; and Bozo’s Grocery & Grill, 2012 Ingalls Ave., Pascagoula, are the most well-known places to get excellent po-boys, but there are dozens more that do a great job.

I prefer to get my fried shrimp po-boys dressed, for the full effect. If eating it requires half a roll of paper towels, then you know you’ve got a good one.
