Great Cajun Food in DFW

We had eaten at Pappadeaux many years ago and decided to return for seafood. It was delicious and worth the money. We tried to make a reservation but they only take reservations 24 hours in advance. We arrived around 6:45pm and had to wait about 20 minutes for a table. We had a drink at the bar and... read more

Pappadeaux was recommended by some friends and it did not disappoint. Enjoyed a booth in the bar area with an attentive wait staff. Beers on tap were plentiful with 3 tvs going. The restaurant was mostly full, but still allowed for normal conversation to take place. The menu is mostly seafood and the choices are fantastic. A nice selection of... More

We had a small group of 4 and were treated very well. Our guests were a little agog at the prices at first (from a small town) but once they received their entrees, they were thrilled. We have become addicted to the Seafood Trio. It used to be one with shrimp and the other chose crayfish. Now we both do... More

I dorve my mom and grandma to Texas for the National Coalition of Women in Ministry Convention. I drove from my city to Texas in 6 hours and 20 minutes. As a group, they decided to eat at Pappadeaux, the most expensive restaurant that I have ever eaten at. They give you a bunch of fries to fill you up... More

Title says it all!! Nothing else need be said. No dislikes! I'm only going on because I have to use 100 characters. The service was top, the food was top, and that is that!

Show up early or expect a long wait. The food is good, but I would not say outstanding. A little on the pricey side. Slow service seems to be the standard. Noisy atmosphere. Been there several times due to others suggestion.

Found this restaurant while on business trip to Dallas. Great service with a touch of New Orleans spice and spunk. Meals are prepared as described on the menu and the drink specials are very good. Special Note: Right next door is their other restaurant called Pappasitos Cantina for some great tex/mex and mexican food. Make sure to get the Margarita...... More

This restaurant just keeps getting better. I have enjoyed eating at this restaurant for over 20 years. Ever time I go it is just as good as the last time. Great atmosphere, pleasant staff, food is delicious. Try this restaurant or it's sister restaurant next door, you won't be disappointed.

I called to make a reservation for our family birthday celebration. I told the girl on the phone that my husband was going to be 65, my Dad. 89, and my niece, 22. When we arrived, the waiter asked for our drink orders...my niece, even though she was with her parents, grandparents, and her aunt, uncle, and cousin, was refused... More

Try to go to Pappadeaux at an odd time if you want to avoid a long wait. The Cajan and seafood options are great. The gumbo is a good way to start. The pastas with shrimp are always very good as well as any of the fish dishes. This restaurant has never disappointed me. The only drawback in coming here... More
