There really is an Uncle Mick. They will give a taste so you can sample unfamiliar items before ordering. It's a buffet with a variety of items each day. You pick what you want and they add it up for you at the register. Nice atmosphere in a restored old factory brick building downtown.

This restaurant is a great place for lunch! We selected our food from the cafeteria style counter. I had the alligator, my husband had the shrimp gumbo. It was amazing! My daughter had a coconut dessert that was delicious! Thank you!!

Thank you, Diana C! Our cafeteria-style serving area is GREAT to let y'all "try before you buy" - to ensure everyone gets their favorite entree and sides. We're so pleased everyone enjoyed their meals - and dessert - and hope to see y'all again soon! Thanks for the 5 stars and kind comments! Take care, Uncle Mick's More

Wow, thanks PlantationHouse! We sure do appreciate y'all giving us 5 stars and such a kind review.

Best meal in town! Uncle Mick asked me if this was my first visit. He let me sample soe of the dishes before I ordered.

We eat here regularly and are never disappointed. It is by far the best meal in Prattville. Hospitality is as good as the food. While it is a little ways off the interstate, it is worth the trip downtown.

We ordered takeout and the entire experience was good. The service on the phone and when we showed to pick up our food was excellent. The food was good, but not as seasoned or spicy as I expected, so that was a bit of a drawback. We ordered 3 entrees and extra garlic bread. The dirty rice is the best... More

Description
Got an ahnvee for some Cajun cooking?

Uncle Mick's Cajun Market & Cafe is a family-owned and operated restaurant located in the heart of historic downtown Prattville, Alabama. Our Cajun food is always hot, fresh, and ready to be served.

Come as you are and enjoy authentic Cajun cuisine in our friendly, family atmosphere - where you're only "one bite away from the bayou! "Dine in" or "take-out" - the choice is yours.

Not sure about the Crawfish or Corn Maque Choux?

No problem!

We encourage our customers to sample a variety of our entrees BEFORE making that BIG decision.

Not all of our food is spicy – we have a little something for everyone.

If you prefer to "fire it up" we have our own blend of Cajun hot sauce we make right here in our kitchen.

Choose from Cajun entrees like Crawfish Etouffee, Seafood Gumbo, or a customer favorite, Shrimp a la Creme! We also have a nice selection of vegetables and desserts. We even have a child's plate for kids that don't know yet how much they LOVE Cajun spices.

We have a Private Dining Area for parties up to 30 people - call for availability and reservations. We are only 20 minutes from Montgomery, 10 minutes from Interstate I-65, 15 minutes from Maxwell AFB, and conveniently located in central Alabama within the Montgomery River Region.

There REALLY IS an "Uncle Mick"! Mickey Thompson, owner and manager, opened the doors at Uncle Mick's Cajun Market & Cafe on Mardi Gras Day in 2009, providing a piece of Southern Louisiana in the middle of "The Fountain City".

Does Uncle Mick’s really serve alligator?

Yes we do!

Ask Uncle Mick for a free sample. We promise it won’t bite!

“Y’all Come See Us!”
