Very good laid back south Louisiana atmosphere

They have a really good, and I mean really good crawfish enchiladas. In fact its like the best of cajun and Mexican mixed together. The portions are always good but not over the top but usually don't leave you wanting more. Dudley is a great guy and works hard to keep his business solid like... read more

My wife and I have been eating here for years. Our most recent visit confirmed that the food was still consistently good. Our favorite dish is the blacken catfish which just melts in your mouth. Lots of food on the plate. You will not leave hungry or unhappy.

I eat there anytime I am in the area. The food is very good, and well worth the effort. The parking lot can get a little tight, and seating is limited. Get there early, and be sure you are hungry!

shouldn't let the name fool you! was in Longview on business and looked up " Cajun" for a type of food to eat. Wonderful!!! easy to get to not a large "chain" brand and the people working asked at least three times how we were enjoying the meal. Must eat there if ever in Longview.

Dudley loads your Lunch Plate, generous portions. The Fried Catfish at Lunch is never over cooked, fish moist and flaky and the batter is thin and just right. The wait staff is exemplary.
