I work 20 minutes from Papa Roux, but his Po-Boys and daily specials are just that good that I drive down every chance I get! I rarely spend over $10 and leave stuffed. Most items have a low to medium spice level, but Papa will...More

Found out about Papa while searching on TripAdvisor. Hidden gem only 20 mins from the house. Our group had Beef Poboys, Catfish Powboys, and all the sides we could handle. Place was busy, but clean and inviting. We'll be back, and soon!

Awesome authentic Cajun food in a clean, friendly hole-in-the-wall kind of place. The staff treats you like family and feeds you like royalty, but the prices are very budget-friendly. Be sure to autograph the wall before you leave!
