Had the shrimp and grits. The grits came deep fried and creamy! The sauce had a great flavor and the shrimp was cooked in a breading that had just the right amount of spice! They have several varieties of hot sauces if you want to kick up the spice. The decor is homey and staff very friendly. Will definitely stop... More

What a great place to eat at. Just a quaint setting. Very homey inside. The service was spectacular, food excellent, and delicious sangria.

We found Café Zydeco through Trip Advisor, and it didn't disappoint. Located in an old residential house near the University, the spot is very simple, eclectic, and laid back. The Cajun cuisine is awesome. It's not fancy. You order at the counter and the food is brought to your table. It was so good, we went back twice for lunch... More

I searched online for Cajun in town and tried it tonight for dinner. Never ate crayfish before and it was good. Recommend the Pasta Zydeco or the Jambalaya. Just the right level of spice-not very hot at all! You have to order your own food at the front desk, get your own drinks, but the food is great-decent prices. The... More

My son and I had a casual lunch here recently. We wanted a place where we could eat outside because I had my two small dogs along because I was traveling through. Perfect! My dogs were on a leash and sat on the patio with us. The waitress was very friendly, the food arrived in a timely manner and it... More

Went for dinner on a hot summer evening...fun atmosphere. It was pretty steamy (no A/C) which only added to the experience. The Mambo was a huge bowl of seafood stew loaded with catfish, crawfish, shrimp, crab...Geoffrey couldn't hang - had to take some home for another day. I had shrimp and grits - good choice. The shrimp had a nice... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in all of Bozeman, the variety and unique flavors keep me coming back. My one year old loves their catfish, crawfish and shrimp as much as I do.

This place is on the North side of W. College St., just east of the junction with Highway 191 (Huffline Lane). Be aware that the TripAdvisor map currently puts the place several blocks east of where it actually is. We did some take-out late on a weekday. This is a very informal place with music playing and Cajun-themed food. Our... More

We have had various Po' Boys and many other "Cajun" meals like Gumbos here over the last couple of years. Great food, reasonable prices. Lots of seating.

Best Cajun food you'll find up north, for sure! Flavors were great, food came out really fast. Would've taken food pics but everything was quickly devoured. Will eat here again when passing through.
