I've never been here before but my husband has often with work people. We went for lunch. Greeted nicely at the door and seated immediately. We both had a chef special. It was a crawfish trio with crawfish blackened, sautéed , and efoutee. Everything was excellent. A drink called Purple Voodoo is to die for. I highly recommend it! I... More

The food is always fresh and delicious and the wait staff friendly and quick. Worth every dime! The dessert tray looked tempting... but I went for a glass of wine instead. :-)

We (both) had special orders for our meals. Waitress got the order right, and the chef definitely got the meals right! Yeah, it's a chain; but, there is nothing wrong with consistency when they consistently get it right. "Purple Pleasure" (or something like that) was purple; but, it was a very average beverage.

I love Papadeaux, the food is great and so are the drinks. I recommend the Crawfish lobster fondue appetizer and the Praline cheesecake.

This is a great place to eat and the service was excellent my fiance fell in love with it . The place is very popular in Texas and was glad I found one here in Arizona. I wish the other franchise were here also.

This location is large and busy with an energetic atmosphere. The menu while providing a variety of options has mostly seafood dishes. The quality and consistency in food is good. Pappadeaux does a good job with their sauces and seasonings to get that great Cajun flavor. If you have never tried alligator before you should definitely get yourself some while... More

Few meals make me stop and savor the food in amazement, but this is one of them. I had the mixed seafood grilled skewers and they were amazing. There was about eight different items on the skewers and all were grilled perfectly. My wife had the lobster and steak and it too was perfect. The food was seasoned perfectly and... More

Like those cajun po-boys? I gar-own-tee you won't be disappointed. Good bread, TONS of fried shrimp, and way too much dirty rice on the side. Fantastic service, too. Had to wait to get a table for lunch @ 2:00, but it was worth it! Didn't eat any dinner that night, because there was simply NO room in the "in"...
