Was looking to try some Cajun while in east Texas visiting family. This little cafe fit the bill. Had blackened shrimp & catfish. Very good. Loved the place as feels authentic. Would eat here again if ever in Longview maybe even try some crawfish next time.

Don't let the small building fool you. It is authentic cajun cuisine. Fun atmosphere and great food!

The blackened shrimp, blackened tilapia, blackened catfish, meat pies, dirty rice, banana pudding, even the rolls....everything I've ever ordered at this establishment has more than exceeded my expectations. And the remoulade sauce CANNOT BE BEATEN!!! You will not be disappointed!

Dudley's Cajun Restaurant is the best anywhere. All of the menu items are spectacular, served very quickly by a great staff. The banana pudding and bread pudding cannot be beat. The meat and crawfish pies served over rice are excellent, as is all of their menu items. If you are in Longview, it is a must stop.

Always eat here when in town. Great selection, great service, friendly crowd. I always get the Hank Williams special for dinner and crab puppies for appetizer -- stuffed shrimp also a stand out.Dudley was injured in a catering truck fire but is doing ok.

A must visit whenever we are in Longview for the best Cajun food anywhere. Many options but the crawfish combo is our favorite.

Dudley's Cajun is as good or better than any I've had in Louisiana. Always fresh and seasoned just right. From jambalaya, to crawfish etouffee, to crawfish and meat pies, fried shrimp....it's all great!

Thank Myla M
