Lafayette/Breaux Bridge/New Iberia, LA and Acadiana surrounds worth visiting for food?

I've done New Orleans a few times but never have made it over to Acadiana. I've seen various threads talking about the specifics of some of the places here but wanted to get a more high-level contextual analysis as to whether a culinary trip just to this area is worthwhile. Within some of these previous threads, I've noticed comments from natives claiming at this area, despite its food history, is something of a culinary wasteland. Within a broader context, many of the "highlights" of the region - gas station boudin, Olde Tyme Grocery po-boys, Cafe Des Amis, places that do crawfish boils, are all "just okay" or are too touristy.

So would you make this region a culinary destination in of itself? I don't want to waste precious vacation days if places are just phoning it in these days.
