After our first two stops in Iberia Parish for GMA on the Road, our crew got a little hungry. Luckily for them, Iberia Parish has so much to offer when it comes to cuisine.

Daniel Phillips does what he does best and sniffs out some of the best places to grab a meal while exploring New Iberia.

In South Louisiana, it’s more than an important question, it’s a crucial one

That question: “Where are we going to eat”?

So as the crew hit the road to New Iberia this week we figured we’d help you out with that question.

The variety of “stick to your ribs” goodness can be found throughout the parish.

If it’s shrimp you crave, then try the famous stuffed poboys from Bon Creole on St. Peter Street. Cajun favorites like rice and gravy and etouffee fill local and visiting stomachs daily at Victor’s Cafeteria in Downtown New Iberia.

And if it’s the murals or being right there on the main street, good food is easy to find.  As we found out from the chefs who create these tantalizing dishes, from red beans to gumbo to fried seafood, hungry travelers can rest assured that after all these years they know what they’re doing.

Even if at their start they needed a little help.

Now, there’s no excuse to leave hungry.
