We had a cup of gumbo (chicken and sausage) and a fried shrimp Po Boy for lunch. The Po Boy was good, but not great. However, the gumbo was the real deal. The best roux outside of Louisiana. This small restaurant is located in a strip mall, and is not fancy, but the food is great. The service was fast... More

We make frequent visits to this restaurant; I can't believe I've not reviewed it yet! A local gem, tucked away in a strip center on Brodie Lane, Evangeline is one of our go-to's. We've gotten to know the owner Curtis, and most times we go, he's in there checking on things. Last week we went on Tuesday for our Valentine's... More

Their crafts pistolettes are delicious and addictive. If you like sweets, the Praline pistolette has a warm caramel drizzle and dusting of powdered sugar. The bar is tiny, the hospitality is unparalleled. Most likely you will meet the owner Curtis. He is the real deal, a Cajun from Lake Charles. You will see photos of many famous people on the...

It is really odd, but this Cajun place has the BEST chicken fried steak! The batter is crunchy and really good. It even stays crunchy overnight. Fries are tasty as well. They are in a small strip center and are often times really crowded but they have live music on certain nights. I definitely recommend.

Great food and service. This place runs like a fine tuned machine. Don't expect fine dining rather a great Cajun meal.

Dined in on a wednesday around 8pm. There was live music and the restaurant was at capacity. Food was good. Service was friendly. Definitely has a French Quarter NOLA feel with the band playing. The restaurant is kinda noisy, making it difficult to have a normal conversation, and since the restaurant is small, having a live band adds to the... More

My husband, two friends and I had dinner at Evangeline Café on a Friday evening. We arrived at 6:15 and there were 2 tables available. The restaurant is small, somewhat noisy and crowded. We ordered Gator Bites ($9) for appetizer. That was delicious. My husband and I ordered Seafood Gumbo ($15) and our friends ordered Stuffed Redfish ($17). We loved... More

Seems like the place never changes but the food is always great. Today we had gator bites then I had the Alligator Sauce Piquante and she had the Stuffed Redfish. FInished off the meal with Pecan Praline Pistolettes. Everything was tasty and delicious ... the gator was quite tender and we couldn't have eaten another bite if we tried!

Ordered fried shrimp/fries. Yum! Good seasoning. There were cajun items, burgers, and sandwiches on the menu. A very lively restaurant. Music at night during the weekend. Atmosphere did have a New Orleans style.

I'm not sure why it took me so long to find this place? Perhaps because it is tucked in a little strip mall. Inside though the atmosphere is cozy and cajun. We ordered the veggie gumbo and rather enjoyed it. We'll be back to try more.
