Description: In July 2004 Will Pieratt and Kevin Heathcoat took a the huge leap of faith and opened Bourbon n' Toulouse by maxing out seven credit cards and simply hoping things worked out for the best. The business plan was simple: cook some damn good food, give back to the community that help keep their lights on and have as much fun as the law allows! Ten years later these guys are still extremely passionate about what they do and they haven't grown up a bit, just ask their wives! Always cooking and laughing, these guys are serious about having fun. Stop in and sample the wide array of tasty Cajun and Creole dishes, grab a beer from the ever changing selection and drift away to their own little version of The French Quarter. Not bad for a washed up musician and a retired elementary teacher!

Loved the atmosphere the food was poor Please people dont tell us you`re serving Cajun / Creole and serve what I just ate. That`s insulting to all lovers of food especially those from The Great State of Louisiana. One good thing they do serve Abita Amber and West Sixth Beers Geaux Tigers!

I go to B n T anytime I can when I am in town. It is the best Cajun I have ever had. The Southwest Etouffee with craw-fish is AWESOME. Pair it up with any of their Red sauces (Chicken Creole, Chicken Sauce Piquant) and you have a match made in heaven!

Driving through Lexington and sought this place out specifically because of Trip Advisor ratings. Easy to find, street parking, eclectic decor. Food was disappointing. The chicken etouffee tasted like it was out of a can. The gumbo was skimpy on the meat. The best (not great) was the red beans and smoked sausage. The chocolate bread pudding was very good.... More

This place is pretty much perfect. The menu isn't very large, but it's diverse and has several vegetarian options. One of the biggest perks is the option get a half-and-half plate if you can't make up your mind, which is pretty likely, especially on your first trip. The food comes out super fast, no matter how packed it is, but... More

I absolutely love Cajun food, and they always live up to their reputation. Service is always fast and food is fantastic every time I go.

I reviewed B&T a while ago, and I have to write again because they've expanded the menu since my previous visit. I had a combo of half red beans and sausage, and half a vegan offering, Caramelized corn and black beans. Both were so good, I had a hard time deciding which on I wanted to save for my last... More

I am a regular at BnT & try to frequent there at a couple times a month. BnT is not a fancy place, but a fun, funky, eclectic small little restaurant with a cool vibe. There food is served on a paper plate with plastic silverware & all the food is served counter side with your name called out. The... More

This is not fine dining. Hole in the wall with funky decor. No service as we ordered at the counter. Tables and chairs were goodwill variety. Food was very good. Four of us had varied dishes. Red beans and rice, black beans and sausage, jambalaya and étouffée. Sausages were bland. Étouffée was also mediocre. Two of us are Cajuns and... More

Not sure why I don't eat here more often, after I have known about BnT for as many years as I have. Great food, and usually sold out of everything I want when I finally do come in. My fault there. Come early, leave happy. This place has a heartbeat for Lexington.
