Great experience all around . Nice atmosphere , spot on service and the food was just what I needed. I had the Hank Williams platter and gator bites washed it down with the house red. The wife had a bowl of seafood gumbo and the red fish. House red went well with that as well. As we were killing... read more

The outside of this cafe can't begin to match the atmosphere inside and the great food. Don't let the strip mall fool you, these people know how to cook. We went on a week-day lunch time and opened the door to a packed house. It was worth the wait for a table and watching the locals. Will definitely go back.

Evangeline Cafe continues to attract locals and tourists alike, especially weekend evenings featuring their signature Cajun specialties and nightly live music. Considering the fact that Austin is a day's drive from Breaux Bridge or Lafayette, the Gumbo is darn pretty good. Red beans and Rice, Jambalaya, Fried Shrimp, Oysters and Catfish, Boudin, Hush Puppies, and all the trimmings will make... More

I knew nothing of this place but my cousin, a Austin resident did. The food was great and They had live authentic Cajun music to boot. Service was excellent. Leave your tuxedo at home this is a jeans place. They have outdoor tables if you are so inclined. This place is the real deal......Cajun cooking and music.

We ate here on the referral of a friend. I was skeptical of a cajun restaurant in a strip mall. Looks can be deceiving. It was great! The food was excellent and the service was, too. The desserts.....all were so good I dream of them to this day. With all the food choices in Austin, this one could be easily... More

Only in Austin, where there is such a plethora of great restaurants, would a place as good as Evangeline not be in the top 20 restaurants on Trip Advisor!!!! We stopped here for a Friday night dinner at 7pm. The place was packed, and we still only waited 10 minutes for a table. As per Trip Advisor reviews, we tried... More

Nice, comfortable atmosphere and pleasant staff. The pistolette was awesome! Great etouffee and fried crawfish as well. I can't want to go back and explore more of their menu.
