Had lunch with friends from work. The oyster contraband was yummy. The sauce on the oysters was delicious. I had the jambalaya - it was kind of dry like it had been microwaved in order to heat it up. The sausage in the jambalaya was...More

Go hungry and early, place fills up fast. Good music, good people, good beer. Try the red beans & rice & etouffe.

First, I must say I loved Evangeline Cafe. It was the first place I'd eat at when I'd return to Austin and the last place I'd eat at when I would leave. And I always ordered their chicken fried alligator, which was to die for!...More

This casual cajun restaurant has the real feel of Lousiana in south Austin. Our server recommended dishes that were all great. My drum on rice with a cream sauce was filling and tasty. The Abita beer was cold in chilled small glasses. It was a...More

Evangeline is truly a Cajun rage. We had pistolets and lunch specials. Food was fresh and tasty. Shrimp and fried oysters were excellent. Cafe is in a shopping center but once you get inside it looks like you are in Cajun country.

We ordered two orders of gumbo with rice for take out along with some potato salad. After arriving home we realized they'd given us all of 1/2 a small drinking cup of rice, hardly enough for even a child's portion. This is the skimpiest takeout...More

Fun little place kind of tucked away in a strip mall. But the food is good, the atmosphere is fun and casual, and the service was VERY good. I had the fried catfish basket with a cup of chicken and sausage gumbo. The catfish was...More

Nice casual atmosphere, friendly service and live music. Some reasonably tasty food helps too! Good fried pickles, jambalaya, stuffed pork chop all got good feedback from our group. Fair prices. Would return.

By name and recommendation from family, expected Cajun café. The café décor and menu was very Cajun. However, the music was country (which I loved) but not Cajun which I expected. The service was very slow. I asked a waitress twice (not ours) to help...More

The 3/26/14 report I posted previously was a score of 90. God knows how bad it was when they scored 75 and 77 like you posted. 70 is a failing score so they were borderline during those two inspections. If it was just a... More
