re: Hot Roast Beef PoBoy

The problem with a Baton Rouge roast beef poboy is the bread. Hardly anyone in town has good bread, and the bread is the key to whole thing.

The tribal elders have spoken. It will be George's under the overpass for the lot of 'em.

You're going to have different opinions on that too. I've read glowing recs for certain places based upon the bread and found it borderline inedible. Felt like it was cutting the top of my mouth into pieces. I've read where some hate soft bread.

Well that is a key part too, but how many places are actually taking the time/effort to do some good roast beef also?

This. I will say that Rocco's has decent bread, it was in the same family as quality poboy bread.

Should be crusty on the outside and soft in the middle.

I think Pocorello's would be the best of the lot, IF he took the time to actually make a roast beef every day instead of shortcutting it. People keep ordering it anyway so I guess he's realized that he doesn't need to make a real roast beef anymore.

Agreed. And it's tough to get that perfect balance between crusty and chewy. I like my poboy bread more on the airy side, but not to where it's falling apart. That's still better than too chewy/dense where you have to pull it apart with your teeth though.

I'm not to particular on the bread as much as I am with the RB. And if the place claims New Orleans style please know what dressed means.

Magazine Poboy Shop in Nola uses Leidenheimer .. and their poboys aren't very good, mostly because the bread isn't very good. You can't just procure the product, you have to store it correctly, serve it fresh, dress it correctly, etc.

Very true. I have no clue what Bears does to frick up the bread but they are damn good at it.

I had a RB poboy from Monjuni's last weekend and thought it was the best I've had in BR.

Decent bread is the very least that should be expected for sure. A sloppy mess while eating it is another thing. Sliced onions that have been simmered to a nice shade of brown in the gravy.
