Nasty

This place is the nastiest hole in the wall restaurant...I was literally in the toilet 10 minutes after leaving...wife and kids would not even eat the crawfish entree (with no crawfish in it). Wait staff are snots...stay away..apple sauce is all I would even dare to eat again...

I love to try new things. Found it here. It was very trendy. The price was more than fair. I had the crawfish jambalaya. It was spicy and good. The cornbread side was the best though. I highly recommend! Service was outstanding as well...

We go to Papa Roux on a regular basis. We love the po' boys and unlimited sides! My wife and I split a po' boy and pay for another unlimited sides. We do the same for our two girls. The bread pudding is to die for! I'm not even a fan of bread pudding, but I always eat at least... More

Great po-boys, sandwiches are HUGE..I eat mine with a fork and literally throw away 3/4 of the delicious french bread simply because I can't finish it. The Beef, pork & chicken is tender and well seasoned. I prefer to dine in, but the place is very small and gets crowded fast, so I usually walk mine back across the street... More

This is a small east side, locally owned restaurant that does an amazing business and has great food! Make sure when you are in Indy, you visit this place on the east side of Indy. We don't get there near enough because of our work schedules and where we live, but love it when we get a chance to get... More

You want local, this is LOCAL! T-shirt and jeans, magic marker all over the walls, mis-matched tables and chairs, what do the folks who run this restaurant think about? Food! Great food, good prices, nice employees with the right attitude for the place. I had the chicken Po Boy, red beans and rice, etuffee, and something called tomato garlic soup... More

We traveled to Indy just to eat at Papa Roux. When you buy a sandwich or main menu item (less than $10) ALL sides are included and unlimited. You put up a flag on your table and the staff will bring your heart's desire. The sides sometimes vary and we were fortunate to have crawfish stew. Drinks are varied soda... More

I have eaten here probably close to 12 times. In the beginning this place was spot on delicious and the all you could eat sides were great. The last three times we have been, the food was just really bad. The bread pudding tasted like they took big hunks of bread and just poured warm sweetened milk on it. I... More
