“Beat poboys in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

This has been the best place for shrimp, oyster, roast beef or ham poboys in Lafayette for decades! Has great snowballs too!

“Great poboys!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

You get a lot of food for your money! For poboys they are the best! I do not think you will be disappointed.

“The size of their poorboys are famous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

When visitors come to Lafayette and want to experience what an authentic poorboy sandwich is, we recommend Olde Tyme Grocery. I have never seen anywhere the amount of meat or seafood packed into one of their sandwiches. Just the weight of it let's you know you have a mega experience in food coming your way. My son now lives in Connecticut, but still comes home and meets up with friends there sometimes. You won't be sorry if you stop by and give them a try. No need to dress up -- it's come as you are and certainly not fancy. Mostly college students around for the great prices, but a long time favorite place in Lafayette, Louisiana.

“Simply scrumptious po-boys. Nothing more, nothing less”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

Its a no frills po-boy shop... We tried shrimp po-boys, meatball po-boy and they were probably some of the best we have had. Just don't come looking for a fancy meal - just good food. Being able to sit outside and enjoy a beautiful day was just lagniappe.

Everyone coming to Lafayette should eat here! This place never let's down. Fried shrimp poboy is the best! No credit cards, so bring ya cash.
