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!”

Visited Uncle Micks while on camping trip in area. This place is absolutely wonderful. If you are looking for authentic Cajun, you can get your fill here. The boudin, alligator and sausage sauce piquante is to die for. Friendly, fast service. This is a must visit when in Plattville or Montgomery area.

Hi there Lesa H!

Wow! All the way from Louisiana ... we're so glad you stopped by and dined with us.

We appreciate all our reviews, and when a Louisiana native says our food is "to die for" ... we're doin' a little dance. :)

We hope you enjoyed your camping trip too and look forward to seeing you again real soon!

Come hungry!

“Great local Cajun place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Uncle Mick's is by far our favorite place to eat in Prattville. We lived in Prattville for 3 years, just 1/2 mile from Uncle Mick's. We still drive 25 miles from our new home to eat there once a month. They serve authentic Cajun dishes such as crawfish étouffée, gator, gumbo, crab augratin, among many others. They also have delicious dirty rice, although it is a little on the oily side. It is packed with sausage and ground beef. They have a spicy Potato salad that's great and they spice up ordinary green beans by adding spicy Cajun sausage. The owner is the friendliest man you'll ever meet. He is always there when we have eaten there, and he makes sure customers are well taken care of. This restaurant embodies what the small local business is all about. Uncle Mick's defines excellent customer service and consistent quality. Don't miss it if you are in the Prattville area and love Cajun cuisine!

“Excellent food!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

Had a wonderful dinner there with several friends. Everyone really enjoyed their food tremendously. cafeteria style, grab a tray and tell them what you want. Not sure what to get, they will give you a taste to see if you like or not. Crawfish etouffee, crab meat au gratin and seafood gumbo were my favorites. Everything was fresh and hot. Desserts were very good also. Can't wait to go back.

“Great from the second I walked in!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

From the moment I walked in I felt very welcomed. I went in for dinner while in town for business. I picked this place specifically because of the great reviews on Trip Advisor. It was about a 25-30 minute drive from Hope Hull where I was staying and it was well worth the trip! I wasn't sure what to get so Uncle Mick gave me sample of several things. I ultimately settled on the Chicken & Sausage Sauce Piquante. For my two sides I got potato salad (the spicier one) and deviled eggs. I was also given two pieces of garlic bread. Mick even asked if I wanted more and offered to bring some more if I did. The entree' had great flavor with just a hint of spiciness. It was served over white rice. The restaurant itself was very clean and had a good atmosphere. The entire meal, including all you can drink fountain drink was only $10.35 and the portion size was big. The food was great, but Mick really made this visit so much better. I'm looking forward to coming back here next time I'm in town.
