The best place to get shrimp poor boys in Lafayette. Quaint outdoor setting. Their reputation is legendary. We go every Saturday for lunch.

The BEST shrimp poboy you will ever eat! The best meatball poboy you will ever eat but be prepared because it is messy but worth it!

This has been the best place for shrimp, oyster, roast beef or ham poboys in Lafayette for decades! Has great snowballs too!

You get a lot of food for your money! For poboys they are the best! I do not think you will be disappointed.

When visitors come to Lafayette and want to experience what an authentic poorboy sandwich is, we recommend Olde Tyme Grocery. I have never seen anywhere the amount of meat or seafood packed into one of their sandwiches. Just the weight of it let's you know you have a mega experience in food coming your way.

Its a no frills po-boy shop... We tried shrimp po-boys, meatball po-boy and they were probably some of the best we have had. Just don't come looking for a fancy meal - just good food. Being able to sit outside and enjoy a beautiful day was just lagniappe.

Cute little place doing a brisk business in poor boys - we had the oyster which was crammed full of oysters spilling out with every bite Order at the counter and if you are eating at a table they will bring it to you Fresh, light roll, They do it right
