BEST OVERSTUFFED SEAFOOD POBOYS

We love Bon Creole's Seafood poboys, they are overstuffed, made fresh and are on the best bread. They are worth the cost. They also have a kids menu. And they made a crab and corn bisque/soup.

What we used to call a "working man's restaurant". Nothing fancy in here. You order at the counter and you are served poor boy sandwiches wrapped in paper and gumbo in a styrofoam bowl. The shrimp poorboy was overstuffed with delicious fried shrimp. The gumbo was good, filled with crab meat. I like mine a touch darker, though.

Large tables & paper towel rolls on the tables as well as game heads around the room. It ain't fancy by any means but the food is really good. It's a walk up counter to order your food and they holler your name when it's ready. The fact that it was PACKED when we were there says enough about what... More

Don't let the cover fool you on this book! The outside reminds me of a few beer bars I've stepped into. However, once inside, very clean, great friendly people and even better food! It's a not miss in New Iberia!

If you're looking for great over stuffed fried shrimp or crawfish poboys this is the place! Great food and excellent prices! Quaint family owned restaurant with delicious food! Love their cooking. It's a taste of Cajun cuisine.

We recently took a tour of Tabasco on Avery Island and then headed to New Iberia. We toured a couple of museums and then asked a local where to eat. They recommended the Bon Crole Seafood diner. We drove by the place - literally, drove right by it!! Be on the look out, it is on the left hand side... More

I am no a picky eater at all but the seafood gumbo was terrible. It also was just warm. We had the French corn soup was served warm not hot. It was just ok. The service was good and friendly. The fried oysters were ok. I thought the breeding was good. Sorry I would not recommend or return.

This is a small, family owned restaurant that serves plate lunches and the best poboys ever. There daily specials are a great value.

Don't be scared away by the outward appearance of this restaurant. Inside they serve some of the best overstuffed po-boy sandwiches, corn crab soup, and gumbo anywhere around! This restaurant has been serving up the aforementioned items, as well as a wide selection of other delicious dishes, for many years. My new favorite menu item is the seafood platter po-boy.... More
