I don't know who wrote the main review for Dwyers, but they missed the mark, entirely. Mark (no pun intended) has been a Lafayette institution..his shrimp in brown gravy over rice, sauce piquante's, pork and beef platters (with yams, black eye peas or fresh limas, great ice tea and wonderful service make this seemingly chaotic cafe a joy. Truck drivers and Cajun cowboys rub shoulders with lawyers and stockbrokers, making this an ideal place to savor Cajun culture, and get a taste of real Cajun food(not that pretentious haute cuisine stuff).
The #3 breakfast is my favorite. Saturday and Sunday mornings are some of the busiest mornings the waiter and waitresses are running around making small talk with all the regulars. It is a place that you can bring a group for a good inexpensive made to home cooked made to order meal.
Bring a big appetite because you'll get plenty of food on the plate-lunch special. The food is absolutely terrific! The plate-lunch usually includes a selection from 2 - 3 different meats, 4 - 5 vegetables and dessert.
You make the right choice when you walk in the door. Great food, great prices, great service the Dwyer family treats you like family. Best deal in town and now they are open at night. So you can eat breakfast, lunch and supper. This is a must when traveling in Acadiana!!!
A tradition in Lafayette that has been around for years. You can count on a delicious home cooked meal, fabulous hamburgers, low prices, friendly faces, and lots of regular customers. The Dwyer family works together in the restaurant on a daily basis. The food is served in generous portions and you never leave hungry. Their motto:(as owner Mike Dwyer puts it) "You can't make a bad choice!"
