Tends to draw a big downtown lunch crowd so the line tends to back up. Casual and scramble for seating. Good range of lunch specials. I've had a range of sandwichs there over the years, to include blackened alligator, cajun style venison and a variety of Po' Boys. Good location if you're downtown for meetings/conferences (on next corner from Hilton Hotel/conference center). Won't drain your wallet, but will fill your belly.

After visiting the state Capitol building, we walked around town and found this little gem where all the locals were headed, so we followed. Specials on the blackboard, order at the counter, they'll call your name and bring your meal. Had the fried pork chop, green beans with red beans and rice. Loved every morsel. The place is not fancy, it's your neighborhood diner with good people and good food. It hit the spot! Would come back. Prices were very reasonable.

The shrimp Po Boy was great and well dressed. Fries were also very good. Don't be put off by a line at lunch time. It moves pretty fast and it is worth the wait.

Great hole in the wall. Cramped, lousy seating, noisy, but some of the best seafood po-boys and plates in town. Out on business, wife at home. Grabbed lunch with 5 of my coworkers. Service was a bit off, one of our group had her order misplaced so it took about 15 minutes to try and figure out what happened. This place is a downtown icon, so go in with low expectations on atmosphere and service, and enjoy some really great food.
