“See the U.S.A. – www.FabulousTravel.com” Victor’s Cafeteria — Dave Roubicheaux eats here! Victor’s found international recognition via the fictional detective, but in all actuality Roubicheaux creator James Lee Burke is the one with the affinity for Victor’s Cafeteria, using it as a setting in his books. Likewise mystery novel fans will have an extra reason for visiting one of New Iberia’s favorite eateries. Most folks, however, go for the great home cooking.
Victor’s has been serving up all your favorite Southern foods cafeteria style since 1969. There are so many good things to eat here, it’s difficult to choose. “Eyes bigger than the stomach” syndrome is a common affliction at Victor’s Cafeteria.
Especially good is the fried chicken, the side dishes, and Victor’s homemade pies. Don’t even think about leaving without a slice (my favorite was the Coconut Cream, but they’re all good), or you’ll be missing out on some truly memorable desserts.
Note: Victor’s is open for breakfast and lunch only! If you can’t make it Victor’s, know that they market a line of savory frozen pies under the Five ‘Lil Cajuns brand, so look for them in grocery stores throughout the south.
