They say nothing brings back a memory more vividly than scent, and I have R&O's to thank for the memories of my youth. Nothing brings back those days like the rich scent of their roast-beef poboys, which makes my mouth water in salty anticipation.
Those days when we would enjoy a piping-hot roast-beef poboy, whose dense, tender meat was brushed with a fine medley of Cajun spices, harkening our rich local heritage. Smothered in the most succulent gravy, it lay nestled in bread so soft, I thought it the stuff of clouds and dreams.
Alas, those days of yesteryear have receded into oblivion, but R&O'S stands proud: a Bucktown monument standing the test of time. Now I sit alone, watching children dip jumbo shrimp in cocktail sauce, giggling as roast-beef gravy puddles at their chin, hoping they take in every sensation, every scent: the memory and meaning of life.
Pros: great food, good service
