Being originally from New Orleans, these are the closest poor boy sandwiches to the originals in The Big Easy. Try the shrimp or oyster sandwich and you will not be disappointed. Five stars.

They have a limited sandwich menu with shrimp, oyster, and poor boys. Whole or half ($9.50/6.95). And other meat sandwiches, again while or half. I like the softer bread they use for their sandwiches. A great atmosphere with friendly and rowdy staff.

Consistently good. I always get the same Ham & Swiss and my parents love the Shrimp. Pop likes fried and Mom wants grilled. We never vary and always satisfied.

You can't beat a poboy from Old Tyme Grocery! The shrimp poboy is my favorite, but there are lots of other things to choose from on the menu.

On our way back from Houston, my wife and I were getting hungry, so we looked up the places in Lafayette, since it was only a short distance down the interstate from where we were. My wife found the number one rated restaurant, out of 400 plus establishments, was Olde Tyme Grocery. We got there quickly and easily from the... More
