My family and I love eating at Dudley's. Everytime we are in Longview we always try to end up at Dudley's. The service is always great and the food is amazing. Never had a bad dish or service here, can't wait till my next visit.

There are a few decent knock-offs in the Cajun Seafood genre in this area, but none as good as the original opened by Dudley Lang in Longview, Texas more than 20 years ago. Dudley's is simply the best when it comes to Louisiana Cajun-style cooking. Our family has enjoyed this simple restaurant on historic U.S. Highway 80 (the original coast-to-coast... More

Dudley's has some of the best cajun creole food have eaten including close by Louisiana. Great atmosphere, and great service. Give you way more than one can eat. Try the gumbo, outstanding as is the crawfish pie.

We arrived in Texas March 8, hungry and tired from our drive from Tennessee. It was about 830 Pm on a Friday evening. Waited about 12 minutes for a table, very busy and crowded restaurant, difficult to find parking, we were seated and explained that we were brand new in Texas. What a wonderful welcome we received from the server... More

There are two fine Cajun seafood restaurants within a block of each other in Longview. Dudley's probably has the best food and largest servings. Johnny Cace's Restaurant has the best atmosphere and dining elegance. Dudley's is a checkerboard-oilcloth table type of place with a motto "Best tails in town." They specialize in fried seafoods and Cajun sides. While the food... More

This is the most authentic cajun cuisine this side of N'Oleans. I have spent time eating my way through south Louisiana and this is as good as it gets and closer than Baton Rouge.

I stopped by on a Thursday and it was busy but not packed. I decided on the crawfish enchalidas which had great seasoning and a delicious cheese sauce. Definitely would get that again. They have a zydeco gumbo which is s combo of chicken shrimp and sausage. I will skip lunch next time so I can try this to!

They serve complimentary cold slaw with each order and it is the best I've eaten since Gus Chicken in Memphis several years ago. The meat portions were a little on the small size for the price but everything was top quality and tops in taste.

We came here to eat before a football game. The posted dinner hours began at 5pm but we arrived about 10 minutes before and several others were going inside so we did too. Based on the reviews here, I was excited to eat here. Our server was good. The food was not so good. My husband had the fried catfish... More
