No clowning around — Bozo’s serves excellent po-boys

Bozo’s has been serving great po-boys, with attitude, for years.

There is just no way I could blog about those funky little out-of-the-way places we all love so much without mentioning Bozo’s in Pascagoula.

It has been around for years and has morphed from a grocery store to rundown diner, and now to a remodeled diner that still brings in crowds by the hordes.

If you want a great overstuffed shrimp po-boy, boiled crawfish, fried catfish, or a great roast beef and gravy po-boy, and are in the eastern reaches of the Coast, this is the place to go.

The first time I visited was for a magazine story, so I went on a Wednesday afternoon about 3 p.m., just to make sure the owner would have time to talk to me.

The line was out the door; I couldn’t even get in. I have since been back many times and this is a place you are sure to love.
