This place has the best food!! I usually get the Chicken Po Boy. You get unlimited sides and tea if you dine there. You can buy a whole or half sandwich. A whole can be split between two people, tell them you want to share sides and you'll both get unlimited sides and tea. You'll walk out full and totally satisfied for a grand total of $10.

We came to Papa Roux expecting gumbo, shrimp po-boys, etouffee, and other traditional cajun items on the menu and were a bit surprised to not find any of it. Nevertheless, we were eager to try their take on cajun.

First, the lunch line was long (but quick), a good sign of popularity. Second, free unlimited sides (dine-in only) sweetened the deal and allowed us to sample the selection. Finally, the 10 or so po-boys come with vouxdoux mayo and house coleslaw, alone worth eating! The red beans, mushroom etouffee, and spicy garlick stew were also well done albeit could use a dash of hot-sauce.

I will return next time in downtown Indy!

I decided to venture out to the East side of town for lunch this week and was pleasantly surprised by what I found. The place has a great vibeto it with a packed dining room an friendly staff. I tried the catfish Po boy, and the cajun stew. Both were well seasoned and huge portions, drinks and sides are included in the meal making it a great value. Beprepared to wasit a few minutes for a table during the peak times of day, but its well worth the wait. I'll be going back.

Close to the same sandwich in the city market but no unlimited sides, just one Dixie cup full of one (and their sides are really good!). Took forever to get my sandwich, I just don't think they are used to the small cramped area. Make the trip out to their post road location if your going to try them out.
