What a fun little sandwich shop!! The food is wonderful - in our group of 14, everyone was pleased with their po' boys (the shrimp & alligator were the most popular options). The decor is unique & interesting, worth a few extra minutes to spend...More

Great atmosphere and great poboys! The BEST Po Boys in Lafayette! It's a great store with lots of choices. And eating outside is a plus! Only complaint is that it is cash only.

I have only ever gotten the fried shrimp poboy and it is always delicious. I am sure they have other delicious food becaue they are always packed. Service is fast. Shrimp poboy - go get one.

Service is great and the atmosphere there is really good. The shrimp on their shrimp poboys is excellent. The only problem I have had there with any of their poboys is the fact that the bread is really tough to bite and chew.

Stopped for lunch to take out. Store was very busy bordering on chaos. Our po'boys arrived quickly. We were expecting something special based on reviews but it was just ok.
