Most children won't eat a vegetable unless it is fried, just like they won't walk a dog who isn't wearing a bow tie. Pick your battles with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of po-boys and seafood at Rosco's Po-Boys and Seafood Market in Kenner.
Roaring grills and bubbling fryers at Rosco's prepare fresh meaty delights and comfort fare seasoned with a flurry of traditional Cajun spices. The menu unfolds to reveal 16 full or half-portion po boys, which cradle fillings such as fried catfish ($8.99 for a full portion) in a bassinet of fresh french bread ringed by golden fries, tomato, and secretly sentient stuffed animals. Seafood baskets gather together morsels of fried shrimp ($10.50) trained to leap neatly into mouths, and sides such as crawfish pie ($2.50 for a small portion) illuminate all four of the tongue's tasting centers with complex spices and a drool-proof light plot. Rosco's also sells fresh-caught seafood such as crabs and crawfish, and sets out a kids' menu for developing palates and miniature appetites.
