I have just returned from another visit to my favorite restaurant on the planet, Gumbeaux's Cajun Cafe in Douglasville, Ga! I decided to take a look to see what others think of this place and, like me, most people recognize it for the wonderful experience you are sure to have. I still have to drive 250 miles one way to eat here and I take a cooler with me to bring home take out. There is NO other place that I am willing to do either of those two things for, much less both. Eating at Gumbeaux's is an experience. Sure you will probably have to wait, but you'll notice that there are lots of other people doing the same thing. Many if not most of those people are willing to wait because they have been there before and they know that the food is exceptional. I have never had a meal there that was "too seasoned" or "too salty" or "drowned in powdered 'Cajun spices'. I have eaten here for 15 years and tried just about everything on the menu at least twice. Many of the staff have been there for years and they always make you feel welcome and comfortable. Cajun food is not for everyone and I don't believe that my opinion should carry more weight because of where I was raised. Having said that, in my opinion, Gumbeaux's will exceed your expectations and make you wish you lived around the corner.
