Food truck parked at the Shangri-La Patio serves crawfish étouffée, jambalaya fried on a stick, and other Cajun/Creole influenced fare.
This trailer serves excellent Louisiana-style fare.
They say the breading on the fried shrimp is perfect and crunchy, and the boudin sausage balls keep the line of regulars stretching to the parking lot.
Tacos, sandwiches, highly regarded burgers, a full complement of draft beers, and a broad selection of juices and locally made kombucha complement the neighborhood staples of coffee and live music.
Casual lunch and dinner every day except Sunday, specializing in the traditional dishes of Southern Louisiana. Terrific food, friendly service, and live music most nights during dinner.
Meals begin with baskets of warm rolls paired with the house herb butter, but save room for desserts such as croissant bread pudding and orange-infused crème brûlée. Rib Eye Pontchartrain, French Quarter Salmon, and Chicken Benjamin round out the list of New Orleans' favorites on the menu. Folk art murals and Mardi Gras masks evoke the French Quarter as much as the cuisine here.
Austin's first-ever Haitian Caribbean food truck.
This casual eatery offers Cajun pho, po-boys, crabs, oysters, shrimp and chicken wings.
Lola Stephens, a proprietor as friendly as her food is good, serves up huge portions of burgers and Cajun chow from a succinct menu. The dining room is communal and friendly, and Lola is a blessing.
A subtle kick from the red beans and rice, combined with the perfect breading on the fried shrimp and oyster po-boys, makes everyone a crazy Cajun.
Items here include po'boys, dinner plates, and combos with shrimp, oysters, and crab. Order the fish fried, blackened, or charbroiled, and sample a variety of side dishes.
This unassuming storefront just uphill from the lake still offers the beloved crawfish cakes with Mermaid sauce, as well as a hearty gumbo, crusty po-boys, and a complete by-the pound menu.
