We had two days extra before a conference in New Orleans. My wife got to choose one day. I took the other. Her choice was to visit Baton Rouge and the USS Kidd Museum. I got to choose where to eat noon lunch. Being somebody who likes local homemade cuisine I saw Poor Boy Lloyd's listed. When you order at... More

maybe it's famous because of its location. Greasy spoon with greasy spoons. Po-Boys were not great, in fact they were marginal. No sides. Seemed a bit like a tourist trap

Stayed at the Hilton across the street and went over for lunch and had a great crawfish Po-Boy on the freshest crusty bread with amazing Onion Rings. This place is just down home Louisiana and the food is delicious. Staff welcomes you like you are in their home. And remember, if you are not local, you are the one that... More

I love crawfish and Poor Boy Lloyd's crawfish po-boy is great. Their seafood gumbo is super too. The atmosphere is casual and friendly as is the owner. I would have loved to try a breakfast there but it was closed to breakfast on Saturday the week we were in town.

The menu has nothing but fried foods. Awesome! Everything was delicious. When we finished eating we took a walk over to the Mississippi and it was amazing. Great place to stop for food and stretch your legs.

Attempted to come here a few times, but they close early. Had the chance today so we went and it was really good. The Shrimp Poor Boy was amazing and the fries, i think they were drowning fries were excellent. A great local place, always love to support the local restaurants. The staff was great.

That bread! So light and fluffy. Perfect oyster Po boy. The oysters were tender and fried to perfection.

Shrimp and crawfish po boy was fantastic! Huge sandwich stuffed to overflowing with all the fixings. The bonus was that it was located directly across the street from the Hilton.

Great place to eat. Local person told us it is the best food in Baton Rouge. We had Po boys and they were great. Grandson loved the roast beef with gravy. I had a shrimp Po boy. Desserts are homemade and they were also good. This is just a hole in the wall but usually the best places to eat... More
