The fried shrimp Poboy is the best in town. Been eating them for years and never disappointed. Small shop that is bustling with people all the time, located blocks from college campus

It's out of the way and off the beaten path , unless you're a ULL student. But so worth the effort to find and visit. Consistently good for so many years. The meatball po-boy is still my favorite. Quaint and bustling around lunch time.

Never, ever a bad choice! The roast beef is to die for but I always seem to go for the shrimp. Whole. Because you have to have leftovers for later ❤️
