The kitchen is right there at the order desk. Everybody yells at everybody. Pretty unique nice outdoor seating or indoors on the porch. Nice old building in the university area. Student workers add vitality to the environment.

I have to agree with the others. A great lunch spot. The shrimp pool was phenomenal. It is cash only however they do have a mini ATM. I will be back

Olde Tyme is located on UL's campus and has been a staple in the community forever. Its a very poplular lunch spot for their poboys and great food. My favorites are the Olde Tyme special with an order of fries (1 order feeds 2 people). The shrimp and meatball are also fantastic. Bring cash they still don't accept credit cards... More

its not one of the best po-boy restaurants in the country..it is THE best. Great little place to grab a daily special. Dining on the patio in the fall is really great.
