I have to agree with the others. A great lunch spot. The shrimp pool was phenomenal. It is cash only however they do have a mini ATM. I will be back

Olde Tyme is located on UL's campus and has been a staple in the community forever. Its a very poplular lunch spot for their poboys and great food. My favorites are the Olde Tyme special with an order of fries (1 order feeds 2 people). The shrimp and meatball are also fantastic. Bring cash they still don't accept credit cards... More

its not one of the best po-boy restaurants in the country..it is THE best. Great little place to grab a daily special. Dining on the patio in the fall is really great.

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
