If you like cajun and especially po-boy sandwiches, you have to try this place. The fried oyster po-boy I had was the best I have ever had. I have had them in New Orleans, Mobile and all along the gulf coast and this was by...More

Our son-in-law suggested this restaurant and told us not to expect much until the food arrived, he was almost right. From the outside you stop and think about going in. Once inside you look around and wonder if there's enough room to get to a...More

Sure, it's not in the absolute nicest part of town, but don't let the plain brick exterior and the permanent marker-graffiti on the interior fool you. The po-boys are fantastic! I've gotten the catfish twice, on soft bread with applesauce and french bread as sides...More

We went in 7 minutes before 4 pm - there was not another guest in the place and they wouldn't budge on leting us apply the kids-eat-free after 4pm program. I have never been impressed with the service here but it seems extreme to turn...More

Excellent!!! I hate writing good reviews for small, hole in the wall restaurants because it tends to attract more people but this place is awesome. The food is great and the staff is very helpful. The price is above average but well worth the money...More

This place is Amazing. The owners are great people. The staff is friendly and the food is out of this world. My favorite is the Alligator Poor Boy. The unlimited sides are spicy but delicious. I like they're small batch sodas. The garlic stew is...More

If you are ever there when they have the "hot mess" special, you have to get it. Hands down the best I've had there. If you don't like spice, stay away from the side orders. My only wish is that they weren't on the other...More

We were in town for the weekend and decided we hadn't had a Papa Roux since we moved. I always used to love the chicken creole when we lived there. I've tried a couple of Cajun places here in Louisville, but nothing every compared. I...More

Been going to this place for years and it's never disappointing. Poboys and sides are all good. Garlic stew too hot for me but most love it. Unlimited sides so prepare to be filled. Owners and staff are great people who treat everyone like regulars
