Dined here recently and found it to be a good but not great Cajun restaurant. I had the fried crawfish tails and crawfish etoufee. The fried tails were very good, but the etouffe was very thin and had very few crawfish in it. I would return here and try something on the menu. It's not a bad place, just not... More

My family of 5 was looking for somewhere to eat on our way from Ruston La. to canton Tx and we found this gem of a restaurant in Longview. Everyone's food was great! A shame we had to go to Texas to get good Louisiana food!!!

The family was traveling through Longview and I found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. By far the best and FRESHEST seafood I have ever had! The fried catfish and crawfish was so good...no sauce necessary! Service was perfect! We will definitely be stopping here again! Thanks Dudley for the great food and amazing service!

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
