It's Christmastime and the weather is more like summer time for me! And when it's warm in December, I enjoy a great sandwich....and po-boys are the ultimate sandwich!
At Turf N' Surf Po Boy on Lavaca St., I have two words for you - HUGE SERVINGS. That's the first thing that comes to mind. I should have shared a po' boy with my friend, but she wanted steak and I wanted seafood, so we just had a lot of delicious food left over.
I got the grilled shrimp po' boy and man, it was packed with 6 GIANT jumbo shrimp that were cooked and seasoned perfectly. My friend's steak serving was super tasty and huge. We could not have chosen a better place for lunch in a strange city.
This place is so cool, right downtown. The pictures on the ordering menu are a bit misleading, the food stand is separate from the bar but you can order the food from inside too.
During football season, we usually want to watch the football playoffs games here but the male clientele at the bar seemed a little sleezy and was using really foul language but it so worth going there for a great po-boy. I'm a bit old school when it comes to chivalry so I usually think guys should watch their words when around women, it's just the polite thing to do.
Aside from that, this place is amazing if you have a hankering for seafood. And yes, I found this restaurant looking under "Best Seafood Austin."
