Residents and folks familiar with New Iberia - a few questions
I’ve recently made the move to the land of Tabasco, sugarcane and haircuts. I’m looking for a culinary overview of New Iberia and the surrounding area. What are the places to you like to eat? Best places to drink, assuming they survive the shutdown? Where do you like to grocery shop? Any place in particular to pick up fresh seafood?

I have a little familiarity with the area, but I want to know where to go and make sure I’m not missing any hidden gems.

Bon Creole for Poboys.

Cafe Jefferson at Rip Van Winkle Gardens for a beautiful lunch. Their seafood bisque is scrumptious.

Grocery shopping:
Bi-Lo
Rouses
Fremin's Food & Furniture - Where you can leave with dinner and a new bedroom set.

Fresh Seafood:
Drive to Delcambre and buy fresh off the boat. Keep an eye on this website to see what's available each day. LINK
Bridgeside Seafood (Delcambre)

Restaurants
Jane's Seafood & Chinese (Best of both in town IMO)
Victor's Cafeteria - Plate lunches and down home cooking. Great Breakfast.
Yellow Bowl in Jeanerette - Classic Cajun food
Caribean Ice - Fast food burgers/hotdogs/wraps/snow cone
Mr. Lester's in Charenton - Steakhouse at the casino
Seafood Connection - Fried and boiled seafood
Boiling Point on HWY 90 - more fried and boiled seafood
Preservation Bar & Grill - Nice drinks and sit down dinner
Kim's Chinese - My favorite Chinese buffet in town
Bon Creole has already been mentioned but they do BBQ plates on Sundays
Duffy's Diner - Diner food and car shows
Meche's Donuts - GOAT donuts!

Over 20 years ago when I was in high school my best friend’s grandfather lived in New Iberia and we would visit on the weekends. We would always eat boiled crawfish at this bar type place called Guiding Star (at least I think that was the name). Does it still exist?

Are they closed on the weekends? I read online they were closed on the weekends and didn’t know if it was correct since it seemed weird to be closed on Saturdays

I’m not sure about the weekends. I was only there during the week. I had an office there recently and only would eat there at lunch during the week.
