Have made more than few visits...and it is spot-on each time. Last time was Chicken Creole. Sweet and spicy (maybe a little less spicy for me)...but I will do it again. Giant po-boys. Unlimited sides built into the cost. The cornbread is a beast...best I...More

This place is litterally right across the street from my wife's grandmother's house. We are big fans of NOLA and travel there frequently. It's nice to get a craving for a Po Boy and be able to go somewhere and get one that lives up...More

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!
