Great Cajun food far from New Orleans

My family went to the Po Boy Factory because there aren't many good Cajun restaurants this far north. The food was excellent; the service was amazingly quick; and the staff was efficient and friendly. I was surprised how the 3 of us dined for only $30 and ate so well. The food is served on paper... read more

Visited last night with my wife, Easy place to park and the food is always fresh and tasty. Love the Shrimp PoBoys with Hush Puppies. Service is fast and efficient. Could be a little noisy when crowded.

And we loved the food and the prices. $3.99 for a kids meal of catfish and fries? Great. My broiled shrimp and huge crab cake? Delicious. Paper plates, plastic cutlery wrapped in plastic, and styrofoam cups -- I did not expect that and it's not environmentally friendly. Made it feel a bit like dining at a park. But the service...

Po Boy Factory is located in an almost residential section of Huntsville. The restaurant itself is in a real cool house like building. The parking lot out front is tiny. I barely made it out of the Po Boy Factory lot with a subcompact car. Would hate to try it in a large SUV. Would describe the Po Boy Factor... More

Enjoyed lunch here with a co-worker on our way out of town, had to give it a try as #1 right? Prolly a bit over-rated. The sandwiches were good, but i guess I wasn't really that impressed with the roast beef po boy I had. And I've had some fantastic roast beef po boys in southern Louisiana too. The "sloppy"... More

I'm a native Floridian. Lived there for 28 years - and I've had my share of good seafood... A friend suggested this place and it was a total surprise where we were going. I ordered the blackened grouper that came with a boatload of shrimp, oysters and scalops... and enough fries to feed all the french that won a war...... More

It was all the reviews said it would be...definitely nothing fancy, but they have a formula that works. No-frills quality food, served hot and at a good price. It was packed for Friday lunch, but the tables turn over quickly. Good crinkle cut fries...and a half fried catfish, half fried shrimp Po Boy. Crisp lettuce - iceberg shredded, a tradition... More
