As Austin's hotbed for expat Louisanans, Shoal Creek Saloon is a great place to catch the pigskin action from hometown faves LSU and the New Orleans Saints. Now, when Chicago meets New Orleans -- and we don't mean on the field, we mean on the plate -- you get the best Cajun gumbo outside Louisiana state lines. You can eat it daintily, by using the accompanying pieces of fresh French bread to soak up the spicy broth around the roasted duck, okra, sausage, and rice. Or you can slurp it all down at once, blending cultures in true Shoal Creek Saloon style. However you choose to consume, you’ll surely be satisfied.
