“Best Poboy in town, hands down”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

I've had a poboy from at least ten different places in town and Old Tyme always makes the top of the list! Also, every night of the week from 6-8, they serve foot long poboys half price! Every night of the week is a specific type. Check outer website to see what the poboy of the night is. We always do Tuesday nights for the ham and Swiss :))

“Best Oyster PoBoy around!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Olde Tyme has been around for a long time and many people love the wide variety of Poboys it has to offer. However, I have to say, hands down, that the fried oyster poboy here is the absolute best this side of New Orleans. The oysters are generous and the fixin's fully complement the oysters to bring out the perfect blend. It's worth standing around for your order and grabbing a table wherever one is open (don't be shy about asking to share a table with someone).

“Like the name implies Olde Tyme is a throwback to old time”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

One does not simply claim they've eaten the best poboy ever until one eats a poboy from Olde Tyme.

Shrimp poboy = best sandwich in Lafayette.

Quarter cut fries... awesome.

Fried oyster and the Olde Tyme Special are hard to beat also.

“Sandwiches after parade”
Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

Our group stopped in here after the kids' mardi gras parade. It was very busy and a bit difficult to manuever through the crowd. Po'boys were tasty and fresh. The half sizes were quite large! Overall a fun place to go if you're in the area.

“It's all about the de"tails"”
Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

I enjoy the atmosphere and good food here however on my last visit the shrimp in my Poor Bo' wasn't cleaned. Hope that changes because you all have the best sandwiches in town!
