Considering all the wonderful restaurants in Lafayette, this is my absolute favorite place for a po'boy, of any kind. Love the bread, love everything! It is fun to just sit there with a beer and relax. Great place!

The shrimp poboy is great. Plenty og shrimp, lettuce, tomatoes, and mayo. The bread is nice and soft.

Atmosphere leaves a bit to be desired, with staff yelling orders and disorganized seating areas, but the food is incredible. Highly recommend the fried shrimp poboy.

Told this was really good, well not so much. Others better. Coming from New Orleans it just did not compare.

Service was fast and Po-boys were delicious. Call ahead for to go orders, because if it is really busy, you could be in for a long wait.
