A 'po' boy' (from the name "poor boy," as the sandwiches were traditionally given to the poor street boys by the nuns in New Orleans) is a New Orleans sandwich similar to a "sub" sandwich. They can be made with anything, but are typically made with a type of meat and "dressing" (lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, and sauce). Mother's Restaurant in New Orleans is well-known for their debris po' boy, made with the "debris" from a roast that falls into gravy when a roast is cut.
