Beck's Cajun Cafe is well-known for its Cajun-style cuisine, with New Orleans' staples such as muffuleta sandwiches and po' boy's at the forefront. The Train Wreck Po' Boy at Reading Terminal was so good (essentially a cheese steak on steroids), I knew I had to try a more traditional po' boy as well.
So when the GF and I had a hankering while we were waiting for our train to the Borgata Water Club in Atlantic City, we decided to check out the 30th Street Station outpost for Beck's Cajun Cafe.
Fried Shrimp Po' Boy [$10.75]
Fried shrimp, french bread, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, creole mayo
We decided to split a traditional shrimp po' boy. While I wish the bread was crustier (perhaps it was because it was almost closing time), there was an abundance of shrimp, well breaded and crispy. A squirt of hot sauce would have really made each bite though.
Also, I don't know if prices are higher than what's on the menu or perhaps the sandwiches are more expensive after lunch. Overall, I'd stick with the train wreck po' boy, which has everything you need already on the sandwich - no condiments necessary.
