Wild Cajun Crawfish

6533 Wilcrest Drive Houston, TX 77072 | Outer Loop - SW | 832-328-4000

Location Description:

Only in Chinatown would you find a Vietnamese-run Cajun restaurant/sports bar that also serves sushi. And all of it is good, including the fresh crawfish that the Wild Cajun folks nearly always have in stock - whether it's crawfish season or not. In keeping with the mostly Cajun theme, poor boys, boudin balls, fried alligator and tremendous seafood platters round out the menu, while the OMFG! Wings are a crowd favorite, especially washed down with a cold beer.
