I'll second that vote for Poches, short drive to Breaux BR. Pork backbone stew, crawfish étouffée and a side of fried catfish. All good sides to choose from. Pick up a ponce or deboned stiffed chicken to cook later for supper.

Sorry I didn't help you out with where it was. Can I make it up to you with a link to their plate lunch menu? Poche's Plate Lunch Menu
I do the same thing, G Vice. I go to Poche's and Dwyer's all the time and try to eat as healthfully as I can from their choices. Last Friday I got a crawfish stuffed chicken breast and some smothered okra from Dwyer's. I consider that a win, since I stayed away from the rice, potatoes, mac 'n cheese, bread and dessert.
And it's not on their posted menu, but during winter, Poche's usually has chicken and sausage gumbo. Really dark roux, which I like. They also make pulled pork sandwiches. They call them pulled pork po-boys, but it's not on French bread. Regardless, the pulled pork is good.
Timy's is no longer open. It's Jason's grill now. Haven't been but says plate lunches and oriental food. Have tried Norbert's. kind of like the old silver moon in Baton Rouge just more cafeteria style. Home cooked creole food.
