A popular local theory claims that "po' boy", as specifically referring to a type of sandwich, was coined in a New Orleans restaurant owned by Benny and Clovis Martin originally from Raceland, Louisiana , former streetcar conductors.
One New Orleans historian finds the Martin claim suspicious for several reasons, starting with the fact that it wasn't described by the local press until 40 years after the strike, and that prior to the story from the Martin brothers themselves was that they had created the po-boy for farmers, dock workers and other "poor boys" who frequented their original location near the French Market. The Martin brothers did write a letter, reprinted in local newspapers in , promising to feed the streetcar workers, but it referenced "our meal" and made no mention of sandwiches.
New Orleans is known for its grand restaurants see Louisiana Creole cuisine , but more humble fare like the po' boy is very popular. It is held in mid-November along a commercial strip of Oak Street in the city's Carrollton neighborhood. Authentic versions of Louisiana-style po' boys can be found along the Gulf Coast , from Houston through the Florida Panhandle. The term "po' boy" has spread further and can be found in the South Atlantic States and in California , where it may instead refer to local variations on the submarine sandwich.
