A local sent me here for lunch & I understand that there's lines out the door on Fridays in Lent! Service was great and I enjoyed my shrimp po'boy but wasn't blown away. Perhaps the expectation was too high? I had a 1/2 and it was filled with a dozen shrimp on yummy bread but just not enough veggies and... More

From the staff to the food, everything was great. The only thing I didn't like was the atm service. Love the shrimp poboy especially.

If you are driving through Louisiana and want an authentic Po' Boy, the best are at Olde Tyme Grocery. Home-made bread, an abundance of freshly fried large shrimp, paired with lettuce, sliced tomatoes and a splash of Tabasco make this Po' Boy outstanding! Also offered, are oyster, catfish and roast beef sandwiches. There are about ten tables inside, as well... More

The place is a bit out of the way, and very small. You will not be disappointed eating there, the po'boys are the best.. I had a shrimp po'boy and it was wonderful. The décor is awesome and old fashioned. Been there several times and the food is always great.

If you are in the mood for South Louisiana's authentic comfort food, the po'boy, then Olde Tyme Grocery is the place for you. Fried Shrimp, Meatball or Roast Beef you can't go wrong at Murph's place.

Whey you visit Lafayette your trip would not be complete without a visit to Old Tyme Grocery. The Shrimp Poboy is fantastic and if you happen to be there during Lent every Friday you can find Crawfish Poboys - don't miss it!
