I love the city of Lafayette! We stopped in on our way to Florida. Great po-boys and very friendly service. We had to get our sandwich to go because we were traveling with our pets. Next time we would like to dine in.

As South Africans desperate for unbattered, un-fried good food without the carbs, we were delighted to discover that The Old Tyme Grocery offered a shrimp salad with a choice of dressings. It was just what we wanted, and the quality of the grilled shrimp was excellent...tender, moist and flavoursome. The service was friendly and prompt, and we felt very much... More

Went one lunchtime and had a meet ball Po-boy. Yummy. Excellent sauce, plenty of meat. In fact it was so enjoyable I went back that evening and had a fried oyster Po-Boy. Again very good. I will be back

This place is one of the spots that locals go to. Great food, great atmosphere, friendly staff. Parking kind of sucks though.

This grocery makes the best shrimp po-boy that cannot be made anywhere else in the world. This place also has an excellent ambiance.

I am shocked at the reviews of this place or we just had a really bad day. The pictures here on Tripadvisor do not look anything like the shrimp po boys we had yesterday. The bread was not near crusty on the outside which we normally have. The bread was soft and squishy like Subway(which I do not like). And... More

This is a great place to get a seafood poboy (or you might consider their special). The location is very close to the university so parking can be an issue at certain times. The counter is located in a convenience store setting so you can choose a root beer or an adult beer to go with your sandwich. There is... More

If you're driving I-10 through Lafayette time your lunch or dinner to stop in here. The half sandwich is plenty. I had the sausage and my mate had the shrimp Po-boy. Mine was great and she said the shrimp was perfect.
