The locals eat breakfast and lunch here. On Thursday mornings there is a French table where they only speak French. Very interesting! Fried catfish on Friday is great.

You don't find many true cafeterias left. This one has no menu, just what the chef cooks up that morning. I had a chicken with sauce over pasta that was very tasty followed by a piece of praline cheesecake. It was very good.

Went for a budiness mtg. They do have wifi. Had red beans and rice with very tender sausage. My counterpart had the chicken and gravy. They enjoyed it as well. Lunch came with a side and we each had cucumber salad and a soft drink for only $21. Would visit again.

I think this is probably where the locals go for lunch. Relaxed, good food, reasonable price, everybody seemed to know exactly how to go about getting their lunch. Staff was friendly and pointed me to the right line. Food was pretty good but not outstanding, except for the pie. Vegetables were seasoned in a way that could make me a... More

I just finished reading my first Dave Robicheaux novel by James Lee Burke before traveling to Louisiana and read about Victor's Cafeteria in New Iberia, which is featured in his books. We didn't realise the place closed at 2PM (we just arrived before 2) but were still allowed to order and they told us to take our time. For us,... More

There is always something good to eat! Desserts are great, caramel apple pie, yum! The pork roast and fried chicken are one of my favorites. They serve breakfast that's great too!

We were just looking some lunch when we spotted Victors. What an outstanding find! Our plates lunches were absolutely delicious! Everyone in the place was friendly and when they realized we were from Arkansas they made a point to come by our table. Would come back in a heartbeat!
