As always, when in Lafayette I have to have their shrimp Po-boy! And it is still consistently the best in the world! Tons of large shrimp and that famous hollowed out french bread makes it a mouthful of heaven and not a mouthful of bread dough!!! Keep this recipe and never change a thing!!!! Thank you for years of consistency, value, flavor, and tradition!

This little deli has some awesome shrimp po-boys; however, don't stray too far from that norm. These are what they are known for, and they make them delicious!
The location is nice if you want to walk and see many other local sites.

Took a large group of friends that had never been the Lafayette or had a po-boy, and they all loved them!

Very Yummy Poorboy and friendly staff. On University of Louisiana Campus. We went there for lunch on Friday and was crowded. We order the food and some one bought it to our table

By far the best poboys in town. A must try experience. If you are running short on time call an order in and pick up.

We live near Lafayette , so have been here many times. I do recommend calling your order ahead, as this is very popular with the locals. I have only tried the shrimp po boy , as I cannot imagine any being better. One important part is the bread it is perfect! I always order mine plain , with everything on the side.
