the shrimp is the best, always good, friends from Houston always stop for lunch. Only downside is they can be busy.

Lake Charles's go-to destination for poboys. Get the Special!! They took out the nasty carpet and added tile recently. They get swamped right at lunch and dinner so go at 11 or 5!!

The BBQ PoBoy is amazing. The bread is unlike any other and provides the perfect balance to the tangy barbecued beef brisket.
