Based upon Trip Advisor's reviews, we sought out Papa Roux's for lunch, and it was a very different meal. We had the catfish and oyster po' boys, and they were very good, as was the cornbread and the cherry soda. The sides of cajun chili and etoufee were nothing special. The atmosphere was lively, and the dining area was quite... More

Yeahhhhhh this place was great. Bummer I don't live in Indi to eat here more often. I'm not even a huge cajun food lover and this place was wonderful. We ordered the stews, which come with rice but could have used meat (you have the option to add, we just didn't.) I would order a sandwich next time... because there... More

Drove from Greenwood to finally check out Papa's. Unfortunately we got there right before close and didn't get to sit down and enjoy the unlimited free sides. I got a fried catfish Po' boy on crispy bread (do the crispy bread!). I got the etouphe as my free side on the carry out order and a free water to go.... More

I love Cajun food and have had my share of it via homemade dishes and various restaurants in several states. However Papa Roux is literally the most unorthodox Cajun restaurant I've ever encountered. It is literally the prime example of a hole-in-the-wall. It is not fancy by any means but where it lacks in a "clean" atmosphere, it makes up... More

Cheap eats on the east side of Indy. You get very large po-boys with a zingy sauce and unlimited sides if you dine-in. In the several times I have been there, they have been packed with people; so, prepare to get cozy. Their homemade sodas are also worth a try. We like to eat here before heading over to a... More

Honestly I love Papa Roux, the food is fantastic, the atmosphere is so relaxed that I can bring my kid even when she's being a brat. It's loud, and fun and perks her up every time. Kids eat free after 4 or 5 and adults entrees are usually under $10 and that includes tea and all the unlimited side you... More

We have eaten at Papa Roux on several occasions and we will be going back for more!! The food is awesome and the staff, or Roux Croux, is fun and friendly. The whole atmosphere is relaxed and fun. If you love cajun food, you HAVE to try this place! Did I mention free, unlimited sides while you are there??

One of the best Po Boys ever to make my taste buds happy. HUGE sandwich and free unlimited sides. Large, MESSY and spectacularly god. The dining area is small and decorated by the patrons writing on the walls. This is a hidden gem!
