Papa Roux (Indianapolis, IN)

8950 E 10th Street, Indianapolis, IN 46219, T: 317-603-9861 (@ City Market)

As most American cities, Indy has various restaurants that bring a taste of New Orleans to the city. Papa Roux stands out from the rest in at least two ways: location and quality. Papa Roux is a stand in the City Market and excels in po-boys. They are huge, fresh, but also pricey. 

I order the Catfish Po-Boy ($11.99): a large, freshly skillet-fried blackened catfish on French bread with spicy mayo and slaw. It is extremely fresh and tasty! The sandwich comes with unlimited sides (that day?). As a side, I take the intriguing Tomato Creole, a sweet and (very) spicy tomato-rice stew with onion and rice. Delicious! The included drink was a Henry Weinhard's Orange Cream, which was simply gross.

VERDICT: 92/100
Papa Roux has awesome sandwiches with real Cajun sides... but they come at a (hefty) price.

  1. I don't think "hefty" is the proper term for the pricing at this location. Perhaps "moderate" fits better. It's not the Cheapo Depot Fast Cajun Food Joint - but - it's not E.J. Hennington's Le Chateau De La Exquisite Restaurante either.
