Facts:  The first poboy was made in 1929 by Clovis and Benny Martin at their Martin Brothers Restaurant at 2000 St. Claude as a way to feed out-of-work striking streetcar drivers.  Well. . .it's been popular in this city ever since and is made with almost anything you can stuff between two halves of French bread.  But. . .what else do you know about this signature sandwich?  Why our French bread gets so crusty crispy?  What are the favorite poboy restaurants in New Orleans?  It's all there!  Take the exam and see if you really are "Naturally N'Awlins."
