Dudley's has been serving the best Cajun food in East Texas for years. The relaxed atmosphere, music, and Dudley himself there most nights give the atmosphere almost as much flavor as the food. The fried crawfish tails are top notch, and the gumbo might just have been smuggled across the state line from Louisiana. We love the food there so... More

This is a quaint little restaurant tucked away in northeast Texas, that is probably the closest thing around that resembles food from southern Louisiana. I had the oyster po boy and my wife has the crawfish pie topped with crawfish etouffe sauce. Both were some of the best we have ever tasted. The bread for the po boy was the... More

I have been going to Dudley's for years. I always find it hard to decide what to order as everything on the menu is superb! And the service is efficient & friendly. My personal favorites are the gumbo, craw-fish tails, & meat pies. Hush puppies are done right. You will be taking food home on most entrees. "Best Tails in... More

To avoid crowds, we went to dinner a little later than most and on a mid-week evening to try out Dudley's. My son who has lived in Longview for a few years had heard great reviews, and the others in our party were from three other states. I have to say the waiter was informative and answered every question about... More

We had a great dinner here and enjoyed every bite! The fried oysters and crawfish tails were excellent. Perfect seasoning! The hushpuppies were also delicious and the chocolate pie and homemade banana pudding were delicious. We will definitely be back!

I eat at Dudley's as often as possible. If you want truly great Cajun style food, this is it. Make it a point to try the Crawfish Enchiladas. They are to die for. The étouffée is the best you will ever find. And the gumbo, what can I say. I rate this as the best dining in the city of... More

You like real Cajun food? This is where you need to go. Don't bother with any other restaurant if you only have one meal to buy while you're in Longview. We will go back. Oh my, it's soooo good! Best banana pudding I've ever had, besides my mama's!
