The braver among us will appreciate that they offer frog legs and gator, but I opted for the “Scruffy’s Special”, your choice of a 5″ Po Boy, a side, fries, and a drink. I chose the jerk chicken Po Boy and the jambalaya. My Dr. Pepper was canned and brought out with a large cup of ice. The soda was nice and cold, but had I realized they were serving cans I would have opted for the tea–the spice in the jambalaya was enough for me to run through most of my drink before my Po Boy and fries came up. Instead, I just asked for a glass of water, which they were happy to provide.
The fries were an unseasoned crinkle cut, served piping hot with a crunchy exterior and a soft interior. The lack of seasoning made them completely forgettable and I would have been perfectly content without them.
The Po Boy was fantastic. Served on perfectly crusty French bread, the tender and peppery jerk chicken combined with the shredded cheese, lettuce, tomato, and a mayo to create a lovely balance of textures and flavors.
The Po Boys here are the best I’ve had and it’s absolutely worth the trip to Five Points if you are across town. Just don’t bother with the fries.
