Very good food, for a poor boy joint
by RedPop4 on 11/7/12
We have eaten here a few times, now, and have gotten quality in everything we have ordered. Whether it's the roast beef poor boy, the hamburgers, fried shrimp, French fry poor boy, appetizers, it's all solid. But for two appetizers, four sandwiches and drinks, then include a tip, it's almost $70.00. I understand in this day and age with gas prices staying high, affecting the price of all foodstuffs, corn shortages which affects prices, and other economic woes, things can get pricey.
But a meal, in a poor boy joint, shouldn't even approach $70, give-or-take. It's patently ridiculous. There's a LOT of good food in this city that we can order and enjoy for $70.00, and in nicer surroundings, to boot. Sorry guys, I like this place and its food, but the prices are well beyond reasonable. Shouldn't be rated $ on here, either.
Favorite Roast Beef in Town
by Vinny V on 1/30/13
A couple friends and I checked out bear's because we had heard good things about their roast beef. They did not disappoint. Debris style roast beef with great flavor and dripping juices. Also not overly expensive like some other poboy places in town. I've been 3 or 4 times now and it has yet to let me down. If you are in the Metairie area, this is definitely the place to go for a roast beef poboy.
