Description: In July 2004 Will Pieratt and Kevin Heathcoat took a the huge leap of faith and opened Bourbon n' Toulouse by maxing out seven credit cards and simply hoping things worked out for the best. The business plan was simple: cook some damn good food, give back to the community that help keep their lights on and have as much fun as the law allows! Ten years later these guys are still extremely passionate about what they do and they haven't grown up a bit, just ask their wives! Always cooking and laughing, these guys are serious about having fun. Stop in and sample the wide array of tasty Cajun and Creole dishes, grab a beer from the ever changing selection and drift away to their own little version of The French Quarter. Not bad for a washed up musician and a retired elementary teacher!

I love this restaurant, it is quick, easy and not expensive. These guys are masters at shrimp and gumbo. My lady and I ate there for lest than $15 together. next time I'm in Lexington , KY I will have to drop by again.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

Not only great food...but great staff. They've also catered a couple of parties for me & always go above & beyond my expectations. Everything is always there & put together nicely ☺ B n' T will always be on my list of go-to places.

“addicted”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

I recently tried this place, my friends have raved about it for years and I understand why. Super cheap and super yummy. $4.50 for a half plate which is a lot of food and $7 for a whole I think. Decent vegetarian selection. I like the mushroom and artichoke dish. My husband the meat eater wasn't as fond of this place because his dish wasn't as spicy as he likes it. They do have an entire bar of different hot sauces - the garlic one is really good.

“Amazing cajun food in the bluegrass state”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

This place is phenomenal. First, the food is amazing (red beans and rice are the best I've ever had). Second, the service was exceptional. Third, the atmosphere is very cool. Fourth, the price is right (about $10/person)! I love this place and will be back the next time I find myself in Lexington, KY for sure.

“Excellent food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

Small, college dive with amazing food! Food served on paper plates and no air conditioning but I'd still come back -- the food was that good.
