Old Tyme Grocery is second to none when you are looking for a great poboy. They bread is always fresh and the meat is always loaded with flavor...large portions. It has become one of my all time favorites and is considered a hidden gem of hole in the wall places in Louisiana. A must try if you are ever in... More

We had the shrimp po'boy and fries. The food was hot and fast. The people were super nice, and the patio was great. Definitely worth the detour.

Just moved here and had several people suggest Olde Tyme for a poboy. Stopped by and ordered and within a few minutes I got my shrimp poboy along with a few things from the grocery. I got mine to go but noticed a little side room where others were eating. I'm from Louisiana and know what it's suppose to taste... More

Visited at lunch. I ordered the 12" shrimp po-boy. Probably the best shrimp po-boy I have ever eaten. Very crowded but service was quick. Every time I'm in Lafayette I will eat here.

I got the half shrimp half oyster po boy. It was AMAZING! You could tell the food was fresh, not frozen. My boyfriend got a pastrami po boy. He loved it. We... More

If you have the opportunity to get to Olde Tyme Grocery while in Lafayette, get there! Be prepared for a bit of chaos ordering and waiting for your poboy but the rewards will be plenty! You'll be amazed at the amount of fried shrimp you get on your poboy ( I prefer mine without ketchup). But any of their freshly... More
