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.

It's an adorable grocery store/restaurant right by the university. The people who work there are really nice and the seating area is really cute. The food was unbelievable. I got the half shrimp half oyster po boy. It was AMAZING! You could tell the food was fresh, not frozen. My boyfriend got a pastrami po boy. He loved it. We... More

Makes the best sandwiches in Lafayette, LA. I like the shrimp and oysters the best. I hope you will enjoy them as much as me.

If you have the opportunity to get to Olde Tyme Grocery while in Lafayette, get there! Be prepared for a bit of chaos ordering and waiting for your poboy but the rewards will be plenty! You'll be amazed at the amount of fried shrimp you get on your poboy ( I prefer mine without ketchup). But any of their freshly... More

Hard to find a place to sit, but that's a good thing. The place is ALWAYS busy and crowded, letting first time visitors know there are good things going on here. The Oyster, shrimp or catfish poboys on wonderful bread are scrumptious... a half poboy is about right for me, and can be ordered that way. The recently extended outdoor... More

Stopped by here while passing thru town based on reviews. It's a good place to get a Po-boy. Don't look for much else, it's mostly a sandwich shop. The place can get really crowded so I'd go at an odd time if you can. It's very noisy in the order line, so review the menu online before you get there.... More

There is something about old staple simple menu of sandwiches and salads. Located just a minute walk from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, this 35 year old restaurant is what you would expect to see near any university campus in the US. You see students and alumni who are now business people who come in for quick lunch -... More
