Poboy stop off I-10 between Houston and Lake Charles

Husband and I are driving to New Orleans from Austin on Wednesday. I am looking for a great po-boy spot somewhere between Houston and Lake Charles for lunch. We could go as far as Lafayette before stoping for lunch. Anything close to I-10 would be perferable so don't loose too much time on the road.

    1. Hollier's Cajun Kitchen, Sulphur, LA. In the land between Houston and Lafayette it may be difficult to find an I-10 restaurant with good bread for their po-boys. Holliers does have decent Cajun country food but I've only eaten plate meals there.

      If been to Fausto's in Iowa to the east of Lake Charles and found it forgetable. I rarely stop for a meal traveling between Lafayette and Houston so can't give a wider selection.

      If you can hang on, Prejeans on 167 in Carencro, a few miles north of I-10 is very popular with the business and oil patch crowd.

        Just FYI, on the Lake Charles loop, out by Lake Street , is Harlequin's, on the south service road. It is a sit-down place with Louisiana/Italian type stuff and I like it for dinner. Don;t know about lunch.

        In this case, though, I think Steamboat Bill's (NOT on the loop but,, rather, just North of the mani highway) is quite decent. Only had their boiled seafood, though.. The po-boy everyone loves over there is the one in that grocery by USL (or ULL, or whatever you want to call it) in Lafayette, but that is not an "off/on" stop. Takes five or ten minutes from I-10.
