My wife and I were doing an RV tour of South Louisiana Cajun Country after visiting the Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival, and found our way to New Iberia to visit the Konrico Rice mill and Tobasco factory on Avery Island and absorb some more cajun ambience. Read the reviews of Bon Creole, and decided to give it a try. This is nothing fancy at all about the setting of this restaurant. Don't walk through the front door unless you understand good food served in Styrofoam containers and white butcher paper. You order at one window, find a seat, and wait for one of the kitchen help to holler your name when your food is ready to go. I uploaded three pictures. One of the order area, one of the gumbo, rice, and potato salad in their respective Styrofoam containers, and a third showing my crawfish poboy half eaten. The food is very good. The crawfish and shrimp are very, very small, and batter fried and piled in heaps on your sandwich. The poboy is served with lettuce, tomato, ketchup (?)(Yuk) and mayonnaise (?) and the seafood of your choice. A 6" poboy was $6 and a 12" was $11.00. Two can share and save a buck. Seafood gumbo (very good), rice and potato salad was $5 a cup or $8 a bowl. Soft drinks were $2.00

Now, the food was very good.... Downhome good. This is a "locals" kind of place and they pack the pace, and if you are lucky and are from out of town, and did your research, you might find yourself here. I would definitely go back again. We did seafood gumbo, crawfish poboys, and soft drinks and the total came to a little more than $25.00

By far the best seafood poboys in the area. Service is friendly and the food is plenty. We usually just call in the order and pick it up, but they do have limited seating there.

I live very close to this restaurant so we eat here often. It's your typical south Louisiana family place with great fried seafood, yummy burgers, and wonderful gumbo. Eating in or getting take out, it's always fast and very fresh. Their French bread for the po-boys is very much like what you would get in New Orleans and the sandwiches are stuffed full of seafood. And they wrap them in white butcher paper, as a proper po-boy should be wrapped. They are super busy at lunch time so you may have a little wait but if you are a visitor, you will enjoy listening to the locals & our accents. You may even hear some Cajun French being spoken. On Sunday they serve ONLY bar-b-que which is nice as we don't have bar-b-que places in New Iberia.

THIS IS what chicken & sausage gumbo should taste like! Fantastic! Glad someone posted a pic of the outside of the building otherwise we may have never found it. Very clean inside. Next time I'm in the area will go again for a different dish.

Bon Creole was recommended to us by the folks at the Rice Mill store and we Thank You! My wife had the shrimp salad with the shrimp grilled. Nice opposites of the hot shrimp and cold salad. I had the crawfish poboy (also recommended) and the 1/2 sandwich was enough to share between us. Nice touch of local color and flavor!!
