Diner restaurant for 18+ great food in an atmosphere that gives you temporary escape to Louisiana. jazz, rock and blues music fill the air as well as blackened spices. Great value for food portions. make reservations before you go otherwise you can wait an hour like I did (luckily whyte ave has pubs). A gem in Edmonton.

You cannot go to Whyte Ave without stopping here for food. We had drooled over the menu, and picked the corn fritters and crab cakes for appetizers. The corn fritters were massive, thankfully our waitress warned us before we ordered our mains. We were so full after the appetizers that we just ended up getting dessert. The bananas foster is...

While I no longer live in Edmonton, I always try to pay Dadeo's a visit whenever I am up for a visit. As the other reviews say, the sweet potato fries are top notch, as well as the Po'Boys. The "Bayou Burger" is probably my favourite, but the pulled pork is a close second. Definitely dig the blues/rockabilly diner styling.... More

The food was great, the service was great and it was packed on a cold Tuesday night! I found it a fun place to have a meal and a great place to hang out!

This is a small restaurant on Whyte closer to the University away from the bar scene. It is dinner style with small tables and seats at the bar. Because of its size, if you drop in you may not be able to get a table or may have to wait so reservations are recommended. Food is standard Cajun style and... More

While it is very common now, Dadeo was the first place in Edmonton I ever had pulled pork (and sweet potato fries, as well), back in nineties when it was a rarity ; but what I recommend is their fried oyster po' boy! A nice stop-in place for lunch on Whyte Ave, not too pricey, with a fun Bohemian/student atmosphere... More

I've been going to Dadeo's for over 20 years (god, I'm old) and the food has always been awesome. Go for a Po'Boy with Sweet Potato fries and you'll be set. Half price Po'Boys on Mondays and Tuesdays - catfish is the best, but the pulled pork and crab cake are awesome, too.
