Description: In July 2004 Will Pieratt and Kevin Heathcoat took a the huge leap of faith and opened Bourbon n' Toulouse by maxing out seven credit cards and simply hoping things worked out for the best. The business plan was simple: cook some damn good food, give back to the community that help keep their lights on and have as much fun as the law allows! Ten years later these guys are still extremely passionate about what they do and they haven't grown up a bit, just ask their wives! Always cooking and laughing, these guys are serious about having fun. Stop in and sample the wide array of tasty Cajun and Creole dishes, grab a beer from the ever changing selection and drift away to their own little version of The French Quarter. Not bad for a washed up musician and a retired elementary teacher!

“Fun Times, Affordable Prices, Tasty Cajun Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

This little area of Lexington (Euclid shopping and dining) is a great place to be, and Bourbon n' Toulouse is a really special part of that. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, yummy grub. If I'm getting cajun takeout I usually go with Gumbo Ya Ya (I love their Maque Choux) but when dining out it's always BnT for the relaxed energy. I love the southwest etouffee and the artichoke/parm/mushroom dish, but it's all good! A great place for friends, family, business, date, lunch, dinner...

“My favorite place to eat in Lexington.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

If you only eat once while you're in Lexington, it should be here. Bourbon n' Toulouse is incredibly laid back and affordable. Be sure to ask for samples!

“Local Favorite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Great cajun and creole all made in house and at a great price. Quick, casual counter service with plenty of seating. They also offer gluten-free and vegan options. Very popular with the neighborhood a university crowds. I work in the neighborhood and it's one of my favorites.

“The best red chili ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

This place is a must for celebrating mardi gras Fat Tuesday in Lexington, Ky. It's tradition. There is sometimes an hour wait outside in the cold on Fat Tuesday, but it is well worth it. They have the best cajun food. It's a simple small restaurant but the food is awesome. Next year hopefully they will block the street and have a block party!
