Food was off the hook, and the price was right. Went here based off the reviews and was happy with everything. This spot is low maintenance, low brow, good date spot if you're not interested in anything fancy. I'm a northerner and can't comment on...More

I lived in Northeast​ Louisiana and this is the closest to the best in Lexington. Will and Kevin and the staff are the best.

Food is on par with anything NOLA offers in this price range. Fast & friendly service. Variety of options that allow you to try a sampling of their menu. Price is great and the amount of food is more than one person eat. So, take...More

We'd describe this place as a hipster dive with delicious Cajun Louisiana food. Fun decor. Friendly service. Seriously, it's a dive. Food served on paper plates. Loved trying all the sauces at the sauce bar. If you are in the mood for Cajun, this is...More

In town to celebrate our daughter's birthday, she requested food from here. What a great choice! We had 3 kinds of etouffe' with rice - chicken, shrimp, and southwest/crawfish and an order of gumbo. All were excellent. The gumbo may well be the best I've...More

Finally got around to visiting this little restaurant this week. The food is superb! My guest and I tried 3 half servings, which were enormous, and we were impressed at the quality and tastiness of these Cajun staples. Will definitely return. It isn't elegant dining,...More

From the name, I would assume that the restaurant sells bourbon, but am well acquainted with the word "assume." Would I be correct? Coming home to Kentucky to celebrate my birthday, and will be trying new places. This one sounds interesting.

Hi Melissa. Sorry I'm just seeing this. The other responders are correct, we don't serve bourbon. Our name comes from the intersection of Bourbon and Toulouse Streets in the French Quarter of New Orleans. We did recently... More

As Dj C said, it's very casual. You order at the counter, they call out your name and you go and pick up your food. Everything is made from scratch in house except for the bread. That is baked daily downtown at Sunrise... More

Yes, they have a decent selection of bottled beers, and the owners also have the bar next door (Checy Chase Inn). I believe you can take your food next door, and have a drink there with your meal if you want something beside... More

In July 2004 Will Pieratt and Kevin Heathcoat took a the huge leap of faith and opened Bourbon n' Toulouse by maxing out seven credit cards and simply hoping things worked out for the best. The business plan was simple: cook some damn good food, give back to the community that help keep their lights on and have as much fun as the law allows! Ten years later these guys are still extremely passionate about what they do and they haven't grown up a bit, just ask their wives! Always cooking and laughing, these guys are serious about having fun. Stop in and sample the wide array of tasty Cajun and Creole dishes, grab a beer from the ever changing selection and drift away to their own little version of The French Quarter.

Not bad for a washed up musician and a retired elementary teacher!
