Excellent bread and special orders with poorboys. Bread and all kinds of specials make it work. My moms madien name was Robicheaux and they owned a meat market in Rayne La. I married into the Dupuis family from Lafayette, La. and it just got better. Love Old Thyme Grocery, Murph and now Ross have it going on. I use to... More

I attended ULL (then USL), many years ago. You couldn't beat Poboys from Olde Tyme! My friend and I returned yesterday after a win at Cajun Field. 20+ years later, the Poboys are still the best! I had the shrimp dressed, lettuce, tomato, mayo, and ketchup. Friend had roast beef! We both finished and were very satisfied. Lots of drinks... More

One of the best sandwiches I ever ate. The bread is what makes the sandwich the bread was not hard it was soft and fresh. I had the turkey and ham and my husband ate the shrimp poboy. When ever I come to town I will definitely come back!!!

Fantastic as usual. Got there at 12:40 ordered two poboys, place was packed but still got out of there at 1:15. Don't forget to grab your drink and chips before you pay.

First know they take cash only. Have an ATM though if needed. Both of our PB's were very good and a half is plenty. Fries were also good and nice beer selection.

Best po-boy in Lafayette. Frequented by locals. No much to look at but just great food. Try the crawfish po-boy.

My usual order is the fried shrimp salad. The shrimp is amazing, fresh, hot, well-seasoned - the best! The lettuce, on the other hand, is shredded, and I would prefer it torn - such a mess to eat! Portions are generous and they have a fair selection of dressings available, which are tasty, although I am not sure if they... More

One of the best shrimp poboy I have ever tasted; large crisp plentiful shrimp. Oysters are good too in the right months. The service is not the best; young college kids with high turnover rate; not really given the guidelines to be nice and polite

I've been a patron of Olde Tyme since the 1980's. This jewel hidden on the edge of the UL campus serves up the best poboy this side of New Orleans in a quant Cajun atmosphere. Choose your favorite or you can't go wrong with the shrimp. Eat it there and you will savor the crunchy burn of fresh fried goodness.... More
