Casual lunch spot. No frills. Nothing beats an oyster poboy and a root beer! Roast beef & Ham Poboys are delicious too! Great crispy French bread!

I was born and raised in the Po Boy Capital, New Orleans. These are for the most part just as good. In fact, the owner was originally from the New Orleans area, St. Bernard. It's in his blood. He has a bunch to choose from, and the price is right. They have a great snoball stand also. They help out... More

This is a great place to get a Poboy. Near UL Campus so great spot if you are a student. Prices are reasonable and the poboys are big so go hungry you will not regret it.

Has to be some of the best PoBoys around. But be prepared for a loud crowd. The crowd is there because they agree with me!

Finally went to Olde Tyme Grocery after living here for a year... after having the fried shrimp po-boy and fries I was disappointed in MYSELF for not trying this sooner. By far the BEST in Lafayette. And if you dine in , it's fun to read all the signs and look at all the old photos inside.

Olde Tyme Grocery's shrimp po-boys are the best in town. Their little store can get crowded during peak times, but that is just because they are so good. The wait is never long and they employees do their best to make the fresh po-boys as quick as possible. They are very friendly there. Unfortunately, they only take cash, but their... More

Look their poboys are the best in town. The bread is good. All the fillings are good. But. Ordering and paying is not good. As soon as you come in there's a line to order. Get to the counter tell them exactly what you want. Get in another line to pay! Cash or check only tho! There's an atm in... More
