I was there for lunch and had several things I wanted to try so I went back for dinner as well. I had the Shrimp EN brouchette (bacon wrapped shrimp Poboy) for lunch. Then for dinner... More

We went right before closing (7:00) so it basically just us. Clean, quick, and cheap. We had huge portions and everything was very good!

OK, we love Chris's for the special, but when we want a fried po-boy, we go to Julien's...and the added bonus of fried rounds, their delightful home made thin cut & deep fried potatoes....yum yum!

We stopped while passing through Lafayette on the way to NOLA. The fried shrimp po-boy is first class. It is a little off the beaten track, but worth the drive. We did a to go order. Enjoyed every bite.

The fried catfish were perfect. Even the half-serving was generous. One nice hushpuppy that thinks it's a falafel ball, nice flavor. The home-made potato chips were a very pleasant surprise. Service was good and staff was friendly, A very satisfying visit.

I am horrified at the attitude of the woman I talked to and I hope she gets fired! What a witch!!! I can't believe that this place is still open after all the trash that came out of her mouth

manager threw my south asian family out because she thought we trashed her already nasty dirty (think trainspotting) bathroom. sandwiches were decent, but not worth ending up at the end of a rope.
