A good cafe for a po boy in lafayette.. seating inside and a large seating area outside. Only cold drinks served shame no coffee. Food served in paper wrap. Very busy but people moved on quick so not long to wait for a table.

I was very pleased with the po boys. We got shrimp and oysters and there were a lot on both. Freshly cooked to order with great bread. Lived up to the hype. For the amount of shrimp on the sandwich this is a good value!

Stopped in for a shrimp poboy. The place was busy but the wait was worth it. The poboy was served hot and fresh, this place is a must if you want a good Cajun poboy.

They are famous for their Shrimp and Meatball Poboys. If you happen to be there during the Lenten season, the fried crawfish poboy is a must try. Also bring cash because they do not accept checks or credit cards.

We made a special detour off of the Highway to come visit the number one rated place to grab a Shrimp po boy!!! We were not disappointed. WE knew it was going to be good by the crowd. It's crazy busy, but, that is half...More

My favorite is the Meatball Sub; However. You will need a bib to wrap around you. It's filled to the rim with homemade chunks of meat. Very tasty! The fries are always hot and fresh just like the sun.
