Best poboy anywhere.

Best poboy sandwich around. Generously stuffed! Ask for the special of the day and get a poboy really cheap. Our visit was the meatball and a whole is cheaper than the normal price for a half. Great deal.

Atmosphere, crowded, but fun like a party. Old fashioned décor, wooden floors, very warm surroundings.

Great place to stop while on a long car ride. Great food but it took a little long on our order! The meat ball po'boy was a little spicy but the shrimp po'boy was excellent!

We stopped here to eat lunch due to the reviews on here. The shrimp po boy is one of the best I have ever had. My youngest got the ham and did not like it, it had a vinger taste to it, but the shrimp and meatball subs were very good. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Stopped in for quick lunch. As usual their ok-pots are VERY generously meat stuffed. I had turkey and could not eat it all. PROS: good food. Well done. Generous toppings and meat. Fairly quick and unique spot Downside. Tough parking unless university is on break. But well worth effort

This restaurant is about 5 minutes from I10. It's worth making a stop. The shrimp (fried) poor boy is awesome! I got a whole one so I had enough for two meals. I also purchased an order of fries which is enough for two people. These are wedge fries which are not my favorite but it was fresh and I... More

Best shrimp po boy! This place is super busy, so call ahead of you're in a hurry. We were passing through--worth getting off the highway and driving through town. #1 in town for a reason!
