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!

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.

This little place is amazing if you like Cajun cooking. The place is nothing fancy, but both our meals were outstanding and very reasonably priced. The décor is colorful to inspire a bit of New Orleans feel. The food is served on disposable plates with plastic wear, which matches the atmosphere. The help is extremely friendly with fast service and... More

Bn'T is my go-to place in Lexington. It's not white table cloth, five star waiters in tuxes kind of place. But if you want some damn good food at a great price, this is the place. Local art hanging on the walls. The front windows are plastered with posters, mostly of local bands playing the Lexington circuit. And look up... More

Went on a recommendation of a friend. It's a small but fun/eclectic atmosphere, and the staff were very kind to us. Kid friendly, quick service, easy on the wallet and, most of all, delicious!

I know its hard to fathom good cajun food this far north but this place is legit. It was kinda hard to find not being from the area but was a great find. Also a pretty decent beer selection.
