  • Razzoo's Cajun Cafe

    12770 SW Freeway, Stafford Outside Houston

  • Abe's Cajun Market

    1080 Clear Lake City Blvd. Clear Lake

    281-480-2237

    Skip the seafood po-boys and try the stuffed chicken breasts or smothered pork chops. Abe's is not your typical Cajun restaurant -- it's a Cajun meat market. It's also a great place to stock up on hard-to-find items like andouille, tasso, boudin, crawfish pie, and stuffed pork chops without having to drive all the way to Louisiana.

  • Al-T's Seafood & Steakhouse

    244 Spur 5 Highway 124, Winnie Outside Houston

    409-296-9818

    Al-T's is a classic Tex-Cajun roadhouse located an hour east of Houston with a diverse menu of fried foods, gumbos, étouffée and homemade boudin. Menu highlights include chicken and sausage gumbo, fried catfish, and the Dirty Herbie - an original concoction of dirty rice, étouffée and chunks of rib-eye steak.
  • Bayou City Seafood n' Pasta

    4712 Richmond Ave. Greenway Plaza

    713-621-6602

    "Let the good times roll," says the neon sign, but the exhortation hardly seems necessary at this unpretentious shrine to crawfish. New Orleans-style jambalaya is moist and full of shrimp, the fried catfish tastes remarkably fresh, and seafood gumbo has personality to spare. Think small when ordering: Serving sizes tend toward the epic.

  • BB's Cafe

    2701 White Oak Heights

    713-868-8000

    This third location of BB's Café is our favorite, with an enormous patio that's a natural for hosting crawfish boils and hoisting Abita beers. The full bar - and we do mean full - makes a mean Hurricane that's the house specialty for a good reason. Grillades and grits are ideal post-hangover brunching material, and the po-boys - especially the savory, salty roast beef debris, fully dressed - are still among the best in town.

    713-524-4499

  • Beaucoup Bar & Grill - CLOSED

    6356 Richmond Ave. Galleria

    832-777-7050

    Beaucoup Bar & Grill serves up Cajun and Southern classic cuisine in a friendly atmosphere near the Medical Center. The po-boys are top-notch and the wings can hold their own against any place in Houston. The catfish is addictive, and the open-face roast beef sandwich is to die for. There's also lots of vegetarian options. Come for the crawfish bread, but stay for the homemade lemonade and hot sauce.

  • The Boot

    1206 W. 20th St. Heights

    713-869-2668

    The Boot may be new, but it retains the atmosphere and vibe of an old-school Houston icehouse, complete with a court for games of washers and buckets of cold beer. Louisiana natives Billy, Tommy and Glenn Duplechin and business partners Jimmy Jones and Chico Ramirez opened The Boot in the Heights shortly after Shady Tavern, the bar that had been in the space since 1939, closed. Though Heights residents have seen a lot of changes recently, this one has been fully embraced. The bar is crowded with neighborhood folks most nights, thanks in large part to the excellent Cajun food offered at a watering hole that once served only peanuts and stale corn chips. The etouffee is as good as anything you'll find in Louisiana, and come crawfish season, The Boot will be the place to get your mudbugs.

  • Boudreaux's Cajun Kitchen

    17595 Tomball Parkway Jersey Village

    281-469-8500

    Boudreaux's menu reads like the cookbook ABCs of Acadiana: alligator, boudin, crawfish, red beans and rice, shrimp Creole and two kinds of gumbo. Fried oysters are especially good, and the fried catfish fillets are commendable, flaky and moist inside, with a salty, black-peppered cornmeal coating.

  • Cajun Town Cafe

    6476 W. Little York Outer Loop - NW

    832-467-3360

    This walk-up-counter eatery has fried shrimp and oysters, po' boys, etouffees and fish dishes at prices you can't beat. Hopefully, the Salvadoran owner will hire an interior designer someday. Until then, get your cheap and tasty Salvadoran-Cajun food to go.
  • Carter & Cooley Company

    375 W. 19th St. Heights

    713-864-3354

    This place is housed in an old Simon Lewis building once occupied by Ward's Drugs. Ironically, considering that C&C once aspired to be a Jewish deli, the best sandwich here is the BLT, with the requisite white toast, leaf lettuce, ripe tomatoes, mayo and eight (yes, eight!) slices of perfectly cooked bacon. C&C also makes a mean Reuben, and the muffuletta is piled high with meat and cheese but mostly serves as a vehicle for its olive salad. And a good one at that.

  • Cowboy's Cajun Kitchen

    1919 Strand St. Galveston

    409-632-7280

    This new Galveston restaurant/bar serves up authentic Cajun and Creole cuisine by Louisiana-native chefs. Several worked at New Orleans' legendary Parasol's Bar and Restaurant, and adding to the staff's pedigree, a manager told us that one of the chefs' great-grandfather was the fifth Mayor of New Orleans. Authentic po-boy sandwiches, boudin balls, wild game gumbo (sometimes with alligator, sometimes with wild boar) and fresh seafood purchased a couple of blocks away are just some of the homemade fare served here, and don't forget to check out the dessert menu. Wash your food down with your choice of domestic beers, red or white wine, or a variety of bottled Abita craft beers. Zydeco music and a busy dining room greeted us on a recent afternoon, and after the success of a recent concert out in the parking lot featuring Come See My Dead Person and the Invincible Czars, plans are now underway to build a beer garden and permanent stage out back for more live shows in the future.

  • Denis' Seafood House

    9777 Katy Freeway Outer Loop - NW

    713-464-6900

    There's no mistaking the Southern Louisiana heritage of this Hedwig Village seafood restaurant, from the wetlands mural on the back wall to the menu chock full of Louisiana favorites like gumbo, crawfish and crabs. The chalkboard lists the fresh catch of the day, which can be prepared in a variety of ways, from grilled to blackened, with sauces such as Lemon Butter, Pontchartrain or Sauce Piquant, just to name a few. Denis' Seafood House attracts an older crowd and never gets raucous.
  • The Durham House - CLOSED

    1200 Durham Dr. River Oaks

    713-864-5600

    The Durham House focuses on upscale spins on modern American and Gulf Coast flavors, offering an array of moderately priced small plates alongside pricier entrees. The cocktail program is among the best in the city, and the menu full of enticing options that deliver both depth of flavor and interest. Try the evocative Andouille and rabbit jambalaya served underneath a tender confit of rabbit leg, or the dangerously dark-roux gumbo that thrills in its willingness to skirt disaster in search of depth of flavor. Whether you grab a bowl of that fantastic gumbo or a couple of small plates, washed down with a polished and thoughtful cocktail from barman James Caronna, or opt for a traipse through the broader menu, The Durham House has turned from a rocky start onto a sure path to one of the most delicious kitchens in the city.

  • Esther's Cajun Cafe and Soul Food

    5204 Yale Outer Loop - NW

    713-699-1212

    You know that when you're eating here, you're one of the family. The customers are a tight-knit bunch at this little restaurant with a steam table. (If there's no steam table at your soul food restaurant, then you're doing it wrong.) Pass your tray through and let Esther load it up with smothered pork chops, buttery mashed potatoes, sweet yams and a giant slice of chocolate cake for later. In the spring, Esther's even does crawfish boils on the small patio. You might feel like you ended up at someone else's family reunion, but they throw one hell of a party.

  • The Fish Place

    11200 NW Outer Loop - SE

    713-812-0200

    With a dozen or so locations around town, this fast-food seafood restaurant specializes in fried, grilled or blackened seafood like shrimp, catfish, redfish and oysters. You order at the counter, and servers bring the food to your table. The fish tacos are excellent.
  • Floyd's Cajun Seafood - Sugarland

    16549 Southwest Freeway, Sugarland Outer Loop - SW

    281-240-3474

  • Frank's Americana Revival & White Star Bar

    3736 Westheimer Greenway Plaza

    713-572-8600

    Located near the corner of Weslayan on Westheimer Frank's Americana Revival offers classic American food food with a strong dose of Texas hospitality. Owned by Michael Shine and his son and partner Chris Shine, this upscale restaurant operates much like a mom-and-pop restaurant, making you feel welcome and cared for. Executive chef Albert Estrada does a fine job delivering gourmet versions of dishes that we all know and love: chicken-fried steak, buttermilk fried chicken, USDA prime rib eye steak and Lyonnaise potatoes, and Gouda mac 'n cheese, to name a few. Frank's also offers a good happy hour from 4 to 7 p.m. Mondays through Fridays at its White Star Bar.

  • Geaux Daddy's Crawfish

    13602 Telge Rd Cypress

    346-732-6067

  • Gumbo Jeaux’s

    2155 Durham Heights

    832-203-7270

    Gumbo Jeaux’s on Durham is the second location of the tiny, Houston­grown chain. The first, located near George Bush Intercontinental Airport, is “legendary among workers in the area south of IAH” (at least according to one fan’s description). The new location brings that same food closer to the center of town while brightening up a rather nondescript city block. If a dish is traditionally spicy, Gumbo Jeaux’s serves it that way unapologetically. Fried fish and butterflied shrimp dishes are always good bets, as are the po­boys. Rather than being served on stubby French baguettes, they’re served on hoagie buns, and while that may offend purists, the toasty rolls with a dark sear on top certainly didn’t offend us. Gumbo Jeaux’s is very casual, BYOB and, considering the fresh fish and shrimp it serves, a remarkable value, with no entrée costing more than $10.99.

  • Hank's Cajun Crawfish

    10800 Bellaire Blvd., #G Outer Loop - SW

    281-988-8974

    Located in a nondescript strip-center along Bellaire, Hank's has a hole-in-the-wall kind of feel to it. No more than a dozen tables comprise the interior, with neon beer signs, New Orleans paraphernalia and flat-screen TVs lining the walls. The main draw here is clear: crawfish. Hank's serves theirs boiled in pound increments, with five varying levels of spice and the option of garlic or no garlic. Wings are also available, along with other fried sides like boudin balls, hush puppies and crawfish fried rice. Other Louisiana favorites such as po-boys and red beans and rice are also offered. Hank's hosts a diverse crowd, from single diners plowing away at crawfish to groups with pitchers of beer and families with young kids.
