Those in our group who at Cajun food thought it was delicious. And so was the shrimp and catfish baskets. Lots of room for our party of six. The Cajun owners are very friendly and accommodating to special requests.

This family operations has brought tremendous Cajun/Creole cuisine to South Missouri. Not much for atmosphere, excellent taste is what they have, and it would make up for them being in cardboard box. Great service, good portions, delightful experience.

Description
Hello Everyone! Grandma's Goodies & Gumbo has a BIG announcement to make. We will be TEMPORARILY closed for BIG changes! We will be closed to go to War Eagle Fair this week but when we come back we will be packing up the restaurant for a BIGGER and BRIGHTER FUTURE! We are not, I repeat NOT, closing up for good. This is only temporary!! For the next 2 months or so, we will be working with our new landlord on completely remodeling our NEW restaurant just 4 doors down at 8 Downing St. Right beside Little Hacienda. We're very excited about our new adventure and can't wait to see you there. This is where Louisiana and Iowa collide in a warm friendly atmosphere. We serve Cajun dishes including 3 types of Gumbo. Jambalaya, Red Beans n Rice, Smoked Sausage Po-Boy, Boudin, Ham n Beans, Chili, to Desserts and a large variety of home made candies such as many flavors of Fudge, Peanut Clusters and our very popular Peanut Brittle, including some reduced sugar Fudge and Peanut Brittle.
