Zydeco Louisiana Diner

1119 Pease Houston, TX 77002 | Downtown/ Midtown | 713-759-2001

Location Description:

This ramshackle, cafeteria-style Cajun place offers a wealth of simple pleasures, among them bacony black-eyed peas, moist corn bread and mashed potatoes yellow with butter. Thumbs up to the shrimp poor boy, with its rowdy mix of tastes and textures; ixnay, though, on the glutinous bread pudding.
