“Such Gluttony, 'Murica”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

Cheap eats on the east side of Indy. You get very large po-boys with a zingy sauce and unlimited sides if you dine-in. In the several times I have been there, they have been packed with people; so, prepare to get cozy. Their homemade sodas are also worth a try. We like to eat here before heading over to a party, because we know we will be full enough to not eat all of the snack foods.

“Great po'boys, fun atmosphere”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

Honestly I love Papa Roux, the food is fantastic, the atmosphere is so relaxed that I can bring my kid even when she's being a brat. It's loud, and fun and perks her up every time. Kids eat free after 4 or 5 and adults entrees are usually under $10 and that includes tea and all the unlimited side you want. So the price can't be beat. The food is awesome and the only complaint I have is that Papa has such a huge following and a tiny place that it can be hard to find a seat. Also it can be easy to feel apart from his crowd. They are a tight knit group with tons if inside jokes the average customer won't get. It's a little off-putting, but the food is so worth it! We make the 40 minute drive at least weekly, more if the specials are something we like. If anything at Papa's confuses you, his croux is the best and will walk you through it! Just don't call them poor boys! It's po boy!

“LOVE THIS PLACE!!”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

We have eaten at Papa Roux on several occasions and we will be going back for more!! The food is awesome and the staff, or Roux Croux, is fun and friendly. The whole atmosphere is relaxed and fun. If you love cajun food, you HAVE to try this place! Did I mention free, unlimited sides while you are there??
