Dallas Observer's Description

A perennial winner of the Observer's "best Cajun" honor, Alligator Café is a counter-service take on South Louisiana cuisine. The restaurant"s a reliable source of boiled crawfish come mudbug season, and the popular pies tend to sell out before closing time, the East Dallas restaurant"s good cheer and boudin balls have won over eaters. The Cajun eatery also offers occasional live blues on the weekends from the likes of local luminaries like Hash Brown.

Tips from foursquare

  • Jason H. on 04/24/10

    Get the Collard Greens.

  • Bobby h. on 03/10/10

    Try the gumbo with alligator or the crawfish etouffee. Order a home made root beer and get a side of fried corn. For desert you've got to try the bread pudding.

  • Cheapism on 03/11/11

    Try a bowl of gumbo for $6.95 or a po-boy for $7.95. Get some alligator tails for $9.95 which come with fries and hush puppies. Cheap kids meals also available.

    Literally, the best sweet tea in town.

    Crawfish ettouffee is the bomb.
