The popular Covington restaurant, Bear's, brings its delicious menu to Mandeville with Big Bear Poboys. The Louisiana classic is a cut above here, and you'll want some extra napkins for these scrumptious concoctions--especially if you get your poboy "dressed" (with lettuce, tomato, mayo and pickle). The Roast Beef and the Ferdie--possibly the messiest (that is, the juiciest)--have topped regional best-of lists for years.
Big Bear Poboys also has specialty burgers: the New Orleans, a patty plus roast beef debris and Swiss cheese, and the Magnum, a patty plus grilled ham, BBQ sauce, grilled onions and Swiss. Prefer cold poboys? Get the Fishing Sandwich, which is cold roast beef, cold ham, BBQ sauce, mayo & Swiss. Perfectly crispy, golden French Fries round out your lunch, and if you've got a sweet tooth, Kelly's Homemade Cookies satisfy.
Big Bear Poboys is open for lunch, Tuesday through Saturday, 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Dine in and carry-out.
