The stories that people will tell you about this place that went to Southeastern Louisiana University, everyone has a unique memory of the Hi-Ho. I grew up eating these sandwiches, some times with nothing more than a sauce bun, lol. The woman that worked the counter for many, many years was named Celeste and she probably knew everyone in town.... More

This place has been here since I was a baby. Tastes the same for a long time, very consistent. It's a little different than your average BBQ that your used to. It's BBQ beef sandwiches on buns and have the option to dress them. It's very good and filling. They have sauce buns for kids too!

This place has been the same and it tastes the same as when a was a young girl. Unique BBQ sandwiches. The oldest ones are sometimes the best.

Good BBQ. Nothing special, just good food at fair prices. Older building, kept clean. Food prepared when ordered. Friendly staff, good atmosphere.

Have you ever been so hungry and so rushed that it seemed you would not be able to eat at all? This happened to me a while ago. Late start, heavy traffic, clothes I intended to wear in laundry and on and on. Throughout the day I did not have an extra second. Starving I go through Ponchatoula to my... More

Horrible. Don't waste your time or money here. The "BBQ" sauce may have well been water. No taste to it at all. Very disappointed...

I got a BBQ Beef Po-boy. It was large. LARGE. But their sauce was awful. The meat tasted like it was baked in foil with little to no seasoning. No smoky BBQ taste. I'd not visit another one of these places.
