Parkway Poboy

The Thanksgiving turkey Parkway Poor Boy is back

This time, "dressed" means cranberry sauce, cornbread dressing and gravy.

You don’t have to wait for the day after Thanksgiving for that turkey sandwich. Every year, Parkway Poor Boys makes its Thanksgiving turkey po-boy every Wednesday in November, and it’s something we have to put in our faces and celebrate. 🤤

The popular po-boy is first lined with cornbread dressing, turkey, whole cranberry dressing and then gravy from the turkey drippings. 😋 You can even “cut the line” like you have Beyoncé status (for a good cause) if you want.

Parkway is teaming up with the Al Copeland Foundation, which helps fun cancer research. Every Wednesday at the restaurant, you can get a $50 ticket that gets you one Thanksgiving poor boy with one drink and sweet potato fries, as well as the privilege to skip the line.

The sandwich is an explosion of Thanksgiving dinner in your mouth without the forced conversation with relatives you see once or twice a year. Yes, please.

Just look at this magnificence!
