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.

Went down to Lafayette for business and had to stop in. Poboys were excellent as always, the staff super friendly, and the atmosphere as genuine as possible. I even got one of the staff to mess with my boss by insisting that he get his sandwich "dressed". This is the reason why I miss south Louisiana - northern VA has... More

Good service, always happy and professional service. They make the best Po boys I've ever had. Always long lines during lunch, but they handle it well and it's all worth it. You can call and order ahead and cut the waiting time. It's sometimes hard to find a seat, but you can get it to go also.

All of their po boys are good. My 2nd favorite is the ham. Cool little campus hangout with it's own earthy vibe. Have eaten their time and time and time again.
