Awesome Poboys. We ALWAYS get the Shrimp poboy and add pepperjack cheese, minus ketchup. The only minus is the fries. They are so-so.

Bought some chocolate eclairs. They were great. They also have some tasty pies. I love going there so many things to choose from.

Ole Time grocery is one of my favorite sandwich spots in Louisiana! Good simple and cheap but you'll need cash to pay. The place is always staffed with collage kids, hard at work and willing to please. Try a Shrimp, Oyster or Deli meat poorboy...More

The Half & Half shrimp and oyster poboy, was great. I really enjoy eating in these old historic places. Great food, great atmosphere and the staff was entertaining, to say the least.

Our shrimp po-boys were above average with ample shrimp and very good french bread. Their version of french fries were just okay. What was a bit underwhelming was the cleanliness of our table. The table top was actually sticky and obviously had not been cleaned...More

Olde Tyme Grocery is a favorite for locals and tourists alike. Some days you may wait longer than others but the final result is always worth the wait. I had a shrimp poboy. Normally I do not get ketchup, but it was put on there....More
