I've eaten here once before and had the crawfish enchiladas. Very good! This time had the blackened combination plate around the world. Oh soooo much food!! Enough to share!! To cap it off they make homemade strawberry, peach, banana pudding and chocolate pies!!! They open at 5pm for dinner and people are waiting for the door to open. You owe... More

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.

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.
