Awesome poboys! For you foreigners, a poboy is a sandwich on a hoagie style bun. All are good, but the fried shrimp is my favorite.

If you are hungry for a mouth watering fried shrimp poor boy, this is the place to go in Lafayette, Louisiana. The poor boy is loaded with delicious fried shrimp seasoned to perfection! Enjoy a real Cajun treat!

Great place for a Cajun shrimp poboy! Very popular with the locals & tourists alike! It's a small place so sometimes you have to wait for a table, but it is well worth it! They serve other types of sandwiches & poboys also.

Serves best PoBoy I have ever had. There is not a better Poboy anywhere in south Louisiana. A must for anyone that visits Lafayette, Louisiana.

Great Po-Boys, possibly the best in Lafayette, and the service is Cool and Rowdy. Located in what really was a neighborhood grocery store (my grandfather used to take me there for treats many many years ago). The dining room is an old house. Funky fun college town atmosphere. Personal faves: Fried Shrimp PoBoy, Fried Catfish PoBoy, Fried Oyster PoBoy, Sausage... More

Love the oyster po boys. The large bun, fresh lettuce and yummy mayo encapsulating thick juicy mouth watering oysters begged to be devoured. These sandwiches are better than any I ever ate in New Orleans.

Read about on Trip Advisor so we had to go try it out. Hole in the Wall is dead on, however the shrimp and half and half Po boy is spot on! Reasonable price, about $10 for whole sw/drinkl. Well worth every penny.
