Iconic is a word thrown around with increasing regularity, but to call Antone’s “iconic” manages to be an understatement. Let’s start with its longevity: for five decades, the brand has been a Houston staple — and many of the po’ boys that made Antone’s a household name are still on the menu and continue to be value priced.
Classics like The Piggy, featuring a completely masterful blend of ham-salami-provolone-pepperjack arranged on a bun from Royal Bakery, are still available for under $7. Upgrade that to its boxed lunch version (featuring chips and a cookie, naturally) and you suddenly get a flash of why Antone’s has served the same community for more than 50 years.
