Consistently good. I always get the same Ham & Swiss and my parents love the Shrimp. Pop likes fried and Mom wants grilled. We never vary and always satisfied.

You can't beat a poboy from Old Tyme Grocery! The shrimp poboy is my favorite, but there are lots of other things to choose from on the menu. The prices are very reasonable, and the atmosphere is pleasant. You can eat indoors, or go outside in the patio area. The service is good and fast. Located right at the edge... More

My wife found the number one rated restaurant, out of 400 plus establishments, was Olde Tyme Grocery. We got there quickly and easily from the... More

If you want a good po-boy you go to Ole Tyme. Have been eating them since it was just a small grocery store and I lived around the block from there. It's worth driving a few miles to get the best in Lafayette. They're delicious and you never leave hungry. They're very generous.

When it's good, it's fantastic!. But when it's not, it's terrible! I have been eating at Olde Tyme Grocery on and off for 25 years. I ate the world's best poboy here and I ate the world's worst poboy here. The difference between the two was the oil in the fryers. The staff has a tendency to use fry oil... More
