Old time grocery by far has the best poboy on the planet. I got a meatball poboy. Will it was a large one next time a small one will do. Loved the little store and history that the place had. Awesome food, great service just a great home cooked meal.

Stop here every time we head to New Orleans from TX. Every Po Boy type we have tried is amazing...but you must try the Hot Roast Beef with gravy!!! Nothing fancy but good old time style food and made with love. Worth the 10 min drive off i-10

This small restaurant in an old country store building puts out the best Poor Boy sandwiches that you can buy. A tradtion among UL students, Lafayette residents and anyone seeking outstanding Cajun Country sandwiches. Dont miss trying the shrimp or the oyster offerings.

Order the Olde Tyme Special. You won't need a whole order of fries to yourself - there's a ton! Great beverage selection. Very casual. Bring cash or your checkbook because they don't take credit.

Best shrimp poboys around. Long wait much of the time and limited seating area, but it's worth it. They also only take cash or checks.
