Skip the fast food when travelling the 1-12. Exit at Lacombe, hwy 434, turn South towards Lacombe and you'll find a surprising and welcoming little place to eat New Orleans style po-boys and home style burgers. Between the Mandeville and Slidell exits you'd never know its only 5 minutes off the interstate. Clean, friendly, open all afternoon with a small... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch after a very long work meeting. Shrimp poboy was great! Friendly staff and quick service.

Stopped in to have dinner. Great little place. Fried pickels are awesome. We ordered a po boy and 1/2 a muffaletta. Both were great.

Love to go here for the chicken salad sandwich. Very nice staff and good service. Burgers are very good too. Daily specials are a good value with plenty of food for the money. Family owned local business we can be proud of. Right off the I 12 just south of the interstate hwy 434 Lacombe St Tammany exit.

Open for lunch and dinner this is great food, good price. Locals like the sheriff come here and eat. Seems the waitress knows almost everyone that walks in. Get your sweet tea and muffaletta sandwich for lunch. Closed Tuesday and Sunday.

I have eaten here a few times since they have opened up and have been happy with every visit. Good portions, Moderately priced, good service and always with a smile. Locally owned and operated. ( Get the jalapeño ranch dipping sauce with homemade chips, you'll thank me later.)

A large group of us were looking for a place to get po-boys in Lacombe and dropped into this place. It's a small cafe but they handled us perfectly. Moving tables to handle 12 of us together, waiting on us promptly and bringing the food quickly. Service, setting and food were all great. I worried that such a large group... More

Po boys, sandwiches, burgers, sides,gourmet pizza, salads, appetizers, and daily hot specials are featured in this comfortable neighbood cafe. They open at 11:00AM, close 9:00PM Mondays to Saturdays. I had spaghetti with three huge meatballs, corn, and French bread and it was very good and the roast beef po boy had been an oven roast carved in homemade gravy.
