We had the shrimp po'boy and fries. The food was hot and fast. The people were super nice, and the patio was great. Definitely worth the detour.

Just moved here and had several people suggest Olde Tyme for a poboy. Stopped by and ordered and within a few minutes I got my shrimp poboy along with a few things from the grocery. I got mine to go but noticed a little side room where others were eating. I'm from Louisiana and know what it's suppose to taste... More

Visited at lunch. I ordered the 12" shrimp po-boy. Probably the best shrimp po-boy I have ever eaten. Very crowded but service was quick. Every time I'm in Lafayette I will eat here.
