Nice to find more BBQ options around. Enjoyed the BBQ sampler with rib tips, polish sausage, pulled pork and shaved along with mozerlla sticks and onion rings. Wife enjoyed buffalo chicken wrap and some home made kettle chips. Will be back again.

The Rib Tips were just as enjoyable. They even have a full bar for those that wish to have an Adult Beverage with their... More

I have had other things like the chili. I remember that being very good too. And pies. Lots of homemade pies. BUT it is the pizza that is great. Thin crust. Better than Monical's. I wish there were a few more ingredients, but my favorite is mushroom, sausage, and onion. Delicious. Sundays there is half price on pizzas. Eat in... More

The staff is friendly but very busy. The menu features mostly burgers and pizza. There is different daily special. There is also a sign offering home made pies. The... More

I moved to Urbana 10 days ago. Coming from a big northern city I was hoping for good BBQ. I heard recommendations for Po' Boys and was disappointed. The BBQ sauce is watery, really watery, as if 80% of it is water. I poured it on my sandwich and it made the bread so soggy that it had to be... More

Love coming to Po Boys on Tuesdays as taco salad is the special! It has yet to disappoint. This day I brought 3 of my coworkers taco salads to go and they fell in love as much as I did the first time I had one. It's huge, it's fresh, it's crunchy, it's amazing! To top it off the servers... More

This place is laid back and family friendly with great food! Pizza reminds me of thin crust from the south side of Chicago where I grew up, great sauce. Good bbq too. I love Mac and cheese and wings. My husband loves the meatball sub. Local art and a full bar.

Sunday at Po Boys you can get a pizza for half the price. The meatball appetizer is practically a meal by itself. Service is good, not perfect but I am not complaining at all.
