Spectacular Homemade Lunch!

Victor's is downtown New Iberia, and it offers a great southern/creole homemade food option for lunch. It's very consistently great. The desserts are to die for, and the stews are phenomenal. I usually can't decide when I visit. Lol. On this last visit, I ate the fried chicken with mashed potatoes... read more

James Lee Burke must be a silent partner. His books gave me the incentive to visit New Iberia with the obligatory meal at Victor's The crowd confirmed it is a local favorite, portions were huge and prices are low. If you are looking for menu items that include the words ""grilled" or "steamed", you're in the wrong place

We went here for breakfast while traveling. Saw the recommendations on Trip advisor. The building is unassuming & I wasn't sure what kind of food to expect. Staff friendly. Food delicious. Grits were smooth and hot. Lots of food for the price.

Ok so I came here because I read some great reviews in trip advisor. I wanted breakfast but came to late. They stopped serving breakfast at 1000. So since I was already here I ate lunch. I don't regret it. The selections were great. Stuffed peppers, gumbo, pork stew, fried chicken and others. Fresh made pies. I got lemon meringue.... More

We visit here on different occasions to have a sit down full breakfast because they are one & a few in town that still do offer sit down full breakfast! Wide breakfast choices anyway you like it prepared is also a good reason to eat here!

A long time family tradition. This is a breakfast must for visitors! Opens at 6am...weekday rush is around 7:00am, especially on Fridays (before school)...I recommend either getting their early or later like 8:30-9am. Cafeteria style at its finest.

We stopped in for breakfast and loved the food. The smothered potatoes and the bacon were highlights. My eggs were cooked to perfection. The system operates a little different. You order at the counter, then go to the front to pay, and then take a seat. When your food is ready, they call you number and bring it to you.... More
