Thank you for all of the reviews! We stopped here on our way to New Orleans and what a treat. Split the oyster & shrimp PO-boy. No wait, clean table. Excellent!

How was a great opportunity to select a pole more that you haven't had in many many months. No matter what you select you're going to be very happy with it. Rustic atmosphere inside the building opportunity to sit outside to eat. You will absolutely love the food.

Sorry, but you can't go wrong here for an old school Louisiana po-boy. Cramped hole in the wall, worth every second of waiting!

The 12:00 lunch crowd is always a little heavy, but the shrimp Poboys is so worth the wait! The price is reasonable and the staff does a fantastic job at getting orders out as quickly as possible.

Get either the shrimp Poboys or the Ham and Swiss Poboy! They are delicious and a local treasure! Enjoy on their little courtyard or inside! Amazing!!

Classic cajun poboys from a neighborhood deli. Good service and fresh ingredients. Can order out easily also.

Lafayette is my hometown. A trip to Lafayette always includes a visit to Olde Tyme. Go "off hours," sit inside, and read the walls for the genuine Olde Tyme grocery reflection of ULL!
