Husband and wife team Chi and Joey Le, owners of Wicked Po Boys in Richardson announced today that they plan to open a second location in Preston Center in Park Cities. The new location is close to Hopdoddy which just opened earlier this month. CraveDFW filed a report on the opening of the original Wicked location. You can pop onto the wayback machine for a look at what this restaurant is all about.
Wicked Po’Boys menu includes a “Gulf” section of po’boys like the crawfish etouffee smothered on fried crawfish, BBQ shrimp, fried shrimp and crispy soft shell crab recipes. Their “Inland” selection includes tofu, roast beef & gravy, Patton’s hot sausage n’ cheese po’boys and more. With the menu also including gumbo, crawfish etouffee, raw and ridiculously charred oysters, sides like Cajun house chips and dirty fries with roast beef, gravy and cheese, Wicked Po’boys honors the spirit of New Orleans by bringing a taste of the culture to Dallas.
Since opening, Vietnamese po’boys, aka Banh Mi, loaded with grilled pork, chicken, pickled carrots and daikon, French butter and jalapenos along with Crawfish Monica, a pasta dish well known to Jazz Fest fans, and Wicked wings stated to be “so good, they’ll make you fly” have been added to the menu.
“We felt that if we stayed true to the flavors of New Orleans, we would be doing something that Dallas would really embrace. We wanted to have a genuine and honest concept that would resonate here in our own city,” explains Chi.
