The Old Tyme Grocery definitely has its own vibe. You got to go when in Lafayette. Bring cash... not sure if they take credit cards yet.

It's always crowded but the poboys are fantastic. Always great quality seafood and lunch meats. Generous portions and fresh ingredients make this sandwich shop a popular place for locals and visitors.

You can't go wrong with anything you order! Just make sure you share an order of fries and you are very hungry if you are brave enough to order a whole Poboy! It is a staple in Lafayette and the employees will always put a smile on your face!

Had the shrimp poorboy and potato wedges - really good - bread fresh and the fried shrimp were excellent. Priced right and served on time.

Olde Tyme has been a favorite for more than 20 years. Sandwiches are made fresh to order. Any fried seafood po'boy is fantastic but if not in the mood for seafood try a meatball po'boy. Never disappointed.

This is a quaint little place with a lot of personality! The bread is what makes these sandwiches great! We had a nice little spur of the moment stop and we are so glad we did! This is a must try!

Because the place is JAMMED most of the time. Right by the University, it is in a great location. Everything made to order, the best bread and fillings and yes I ordered the shrimp and then the roast beef half Poboy. Excellent value for the quality. Man, you gotta get some here!

First time to try Old Tyme Grocery. We had shrimp poor boys with chips & drinks. Taste was awesome, service fine, and atmosphere different. Prices are very reasonable. We ate in the small inside bar area, but many places found outside for eating & drinking. You order poor boys at grocery market counter, pay at grocery register, and they offer... More
