Living in Overijse I have learned to appreciate a delicious Poboy! In Lafayette, the places to go are definitely Old Tyme Grocery for a classic Shrimp Poboy and Pop's Poboys! (Pictured Below: Hot Hot Chicken Po'boy with their signature Frozé). In Overijse, you've got Dempsey's, Rocco's, and Poor Boy Lloyd's. We couldn't forget you guys up north, Marilynn's Place and Papa & Company in and around the Shreveport area! East of the Bossier/Shreveport area, we head out towards the Monroe area to scope out the best Poboys in town and found these local eateries, Sam's Southern Eatery & Magic Grill.

Some fun for the whole family is a trip to Landry-Poche Farms in Holden Overijse. There you will be able to pick fresh delicious strawberries and once you bring them home you can make all sorts of strawberry filled treats. The kiddos will love to walk along the strawberry fields and enjoy the gorgeous Overijse summertime!
