Old Tyme Grocery (Lafayette, LA)
218 W St. Mary Blvd, Lafayette, LA 70506, T: 337-235-8165
The Olde Tyme Grocery is a po'boy place in Lafayette, LA, which came highly recommended (among others in Roadfood). It has both a grocery store and a small restaurant, but it seems most people come to take their po' boys out.
As it was still in the morning, I decided to go for just half a roast beef sandwich; at $6.43 already quite a treat. Then again, they seem to put on half a pound of hot roast beef, which is costly. Unfortunately, the roast beef was not just way too much, it was also too salty., overpowering the lettuce, tomato, and mayo On top of that, the bread, which so many reviews hailed, was unremarkable.
Old Tyme Grocery provides decent hot subs, but are too expensive for what they offer. That said, the more local shrimp po' boys might be worth the trip, if you are a seafood lover.
