The other reviews speak the truth. The shrimp poor boy is awesome. A small shop mostly run by students, with a laid back atmosphere. Has indoor outdoor and curbside pick up. And the price is very reasonable. I can eat a lot and I couldn't even finish a whole sandwich.

I was in town for Christmas and my son and daughter-in-law surprised me with lunch at Old Tyme! I moved away 17 years ago, and hadn't been there since. I love the outdoor patio, especially during this year of Covid. The shrimp po-boy was as good as I remembered! The fries were hot and well-seasoned. It was a real treat.

Acadiana Cajun classic! If you are visiting Cajun country you must have a poor boy from Olde Tyme. Sandwiches are made to order and orders are placed at the counter upon entry. Your choice of chips and drinks are available in line prior to sandwich order. The shrimp and Olde Tyme Special are our favorites. Bread is perfectly soft with crispy outside. Seating is available inside and out with a newly expanded cute patio. Enjoy!
