I died and went to Shrimp Po'Boy Heaven

Had dinner here with spouse. Shared a whole shrimp po'boy ($9.50) and order of fries ($1.95). Prices are very good! Portions are huge. Everything about our sandwich was perfect. Bread was a bit crusty but didn't taste stale; was absorbent enough so we didn't have juice dripping off our... read more

Couldn't have asked for better Po Bo's and local beer. We had a shrimp one that was loaded with a bunch of big fried shrimp. Cash only.

Some of the best po-boys you can get. The shrimp po-boy is a family favorite and it is overflowing with shrimp. Other yummy po-boys are the catfish, roast beef, and the Olde Tyme Special. It's got a good vibe and the service is fast. Food has always been hot and the bread is fresh. Conveniently located near UL campus.

Most of my visits to Lafayette over the past 6-7 years, I've always wanted to try this place, it is number one rated restaurant on Trip Advisor for a very good reason. Always my co-travellers would steer us away to other just as worthy dining destinations. So glad i was on my own and could come directly here. I asked... More

I got the shrimp and oyster po boy and it was to die for. Everything tasted fresh--including the bread. Add the garlic sauce for a kick. Just Try it for yourself!!!!!

Olde Time Grocery is a staple of Lafayette. If you have lived here for a short time- you have heard of it. If you have lived here your whole life- you have been there many times and have taken out of towners there! My favorite is the meatball po-boy! Its quaint, parking isn't that great and in a busy area... More

Everything I had always heard about this little place was correct! Great food, service & atmosphere! Go hungry or share a meal as the serving sizes are quite large!

You will most likely have to stand in line to order, it's worth the wait if you're in the neighorhood. The bread is good, the shrimp poboy could stand a few more shrimp, the seating is limited, but you won't be disappointed. It's next the UL so you might expect a few students.

Old time atmosphere - grocery store layout with one thing for sale: hot, fresh Louisiana poboys! A/C and patio seating. Bring cash.
