Came here about 3 am, staff was waiting eagerly to serve me. I wanted to try gator, but $11 scared me a little. So I chose 6inch catfish poboy. It was good, season ok. But I would have wanted a little more spice. Not a place for first date, but if your driving and need a quick bite, then yes.

I have no idea what this place is trying to pass off as poboy's but having grown up in the area I can say skip this poor excuse for a sandwich. The overstuffed shrimp was soggy and over breaded served on a roll undeserving to be called French bread. And the roast beef is hot griddles cheap deli meat drowned... More

This unassuming in-gas-station-casion restaurant first appears to be another local place...then the attentative wait staff arrive and let the good times role. The food is excellent, the prices good too. I recommend it.

I usually order out. The shrimp Po boy and grilled shrimp salad are my favorites. Ambience is that of a truck stop.

We ate there tonight for supper. I had the vegetable soup. My wife had the chicken and sausage gumbo. My daughter had a oyster po-boy. My soup had no flavor at all. Pitt Grill in Iowa has great vegetable soup. My wife said her gumbo was not good. My daughter had to change her oyster po-boy to a shrimp po-boy... More

We stopped for lunch. The special was a 10 oz ribeye for $11.99! It was a little undercooked, but they happily put it on the grill. It was very tasty. It came with a salad and the choice of a side. The sweet potatoes were a bit limp, but still good. Anything lacking in the meal was made up for... More

This restaurant is located in a busy truck stop. They have a good menu with a some very good dishes. They even have a children menu. The food was very tasty and there was plenty of it. The service was friendly and fast. There is also a very good gift section in the store area. Not the junk you normally... More
