Dudley's

Without a doubt, the best seafood gumbo ever. His gumbo is better by far than any I had in New Orleans. Everything here is good. The crawfish pie is yummy and the fried shrimp is better than any you have ever had. Even the cold slaw is good and free with every meal. .

The food is delicious, the service good, and the price reasonable. Decor is similar to south Louisiana restaurants. Who can ask for anything more?

Traveling on I -20 is always an adventure, but this time it led me to the most unexpected, totally delicious meal. Having spent my childhood in the caribbean, I became very fond of exquisite afro-hispanic flavored crab dishes. I thought those recipes and flavors were lost. Fast forward 45 years, same unbelievable crab cakes, same flavor, awesome texture, in Longview... More

If you want great Cajun food in East Texas, Dudley's is the place to go! Great food, staff and ambiance. Blackened Catfish smothered in Crawfish Etouffee, meat pies, crawfish pies, build you own Seafood Platters, etc. I've been through the whole menu and never been disappointed.

We lucked into this restaurant and enjoyed every bite. Best Cajun food we have ever had. Strawberry pie was a good finish.

Stopped for lunch on our way to Louisiana. Great gumbo, étouffée and crawfish pie. Strawberry pie was the perfect dessert. Glad we detoured off the interstate, definitely worth it.

Liked food, dining is a bit casual but where do you find formal or elegant settings for eating crawfish? Good place, reasonable

Definitely not the best Cajun food or food period in Longview. I'm not sure I would go back. There is a much better Cajun food restaurant in the newer side of town with a much cleaner facility and better service.
