My parents took us to the old Parkway Bakery most of our life growing up. When I was a young Mother I took my children too! We LOVED it--the old Parkway!!! My whole life every roast beef poboy was judged against those old (very vivid) memories. I can say I was so very disappointed with the "New" Parkway---it's NOTHING like the original----NOTHING!!!!!!! How sad, I can't believe the people that own it now have EVER tasted a REAL Parkway Bakery Roast Beef Poboy!!!!!! I won't b...view moree returning.
