The overstuffed sandwiches are dangerously large. If you're in a sharing mood and both parties agree on the filling, splitting a king size is a better deal than two regulars that have the same filling. The shrimp is the heart-stopping traditional po'boy preparation, with nearly a pound of tiny deep-fried shrimp spilling out of the airy New Orleans roll.
Fried chicken is also a specialty here, but if you are in a hurry, beware! It takes about 20 minutes as the pieces are cooked to order (would you want it any other way?). Chicken parts come out juicy and crispy. And you won't go hungry, as the chicken plates (as well as the deep-fried platters of shrimp, catfish, oysters, and calamari) also include salad and choice of side (coleslaw, dirty rice, fries, or potato salad).
Warning: No alcohol served here!
This is a great stopping place on your way to/from the airport. It's right off the highway.
