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
