After we walked around the Jungle Gardens at Avery Island we went to Brenda's for lunch. The food was absolutely fabulous!!! We had the baked chicken, pork roast and beef roast. The smothered okra was the best side dish ever. We also loved the baked...More

My daughter and her family ate at Brenda's 5 years ago and they are still talking about it. So when we came to Louisiana it was on our list of "don't miss" places. And we are so glad we made the effort to get there....More

My husband wanted to abduct Ms. Brenda and take her with us, but she wouldn't have it, lol. Her charm was matched only by her heavenly crawfish etoufee and shrimp fettucini. Don't let the humble establishment deter you, she has won well deserved awards and...More

We were a bit wary when we pulled up to Brenda's, a very modest building in an out-the-way spot covered in hand-lettered signs. A slick chain restaurant it's not, and thank goodness. Brenda has been homecooking fresh meals here for 30 years and the walls...More

There are a small amount of tables here. They call what they serve here "soul food." Brenda seems to be present all the time, a plus. I had a delicious shrimp stew with side dishes of very good corn, potato salad and bread (see my...More

You can taste the love in every bite! This place is the real deal. They use lard, butter, salt and pepper, so if you're on a diet, vegan, calorie restricted or trying to get down to your "fighting weight" you're not gonna find anything here....More

Brenda's is definitely worth a stop if you are anywhere near New Iberia. The staff was so friendly, and the dining room so quaint with all of the family pictures. But, it's the soul food that's top notch!! Three of us shared two entrees and...More
