The Big Easy has reached Las Vegas at Streetcar Po-Boys, where a simple menu is stacked with the eponymous sub sandwiches of New Orleans descent. Choices include the Bayou (fried oysters), the Big Easy (fried shrimp) and the Gulf (fried catfish), because they like frying things here. Can’t decide? Opt for all three in the Streetcar ($12.95 regular, $14.95 large). Non-seafood choices include the French Market with Andouille sausage or the Bourbon Street with roast beef and gravy. The Real Cajun ($8.95, $10.95) layers French fries and gravy in a sandwich, because that’s a thing.
Streetcar Po-Boys goes to great lengths to maintain authenticity, serving only traditional, light and flaky Leidenheimer bread and seafood imported from the Gulf Coast—which means sometimes the kitchen might run out. Even the boudin sausage comes direct from Louisiana, and the sweet tea would make a hummingbird swoon. All that’s missing is some oppressive humidity and eau de French Quarter; add those and you’ll be bartering for beads in no time.
