The food was what you would expect from a fry house, good and crispy. I had the fried shrimp with hushpuppies and fries. Very basic; however, if you do basic really well you stand out.

The decor of Outpost may not thrill some folks, but one bite of their food will blow them away. From seafood to burgers, it would be hard to find a better casual place to dine in Northwest Longview. Conveniently located at the intersection of TX-300...More

I don't like to write negative reviews, but this situation was really pathetic. Maybe it was a fluke. Other people say that the food here is really good, but we had a very negative experience. We ordered the flounder, some boudin, and the chicken fried...More

I've lived close to this restaurant for a long time, but had no idea the quality of the food they serve. Very reasonably priced for what you get. The crab legs were some of the best I've ever had! Don't let the building fool you!

Great service and even greater food. We were in Longview for a training and saw them on the way out of town. Boy did they show the love. Some good old downsouth Cajun fiddles! Thank you Amy, Jason, and Sara!

during season, their crawfish are wonderful. Very spicy which is good but the crawfish are somewhat smaller than other venders. I love the boiled shrimp. Their fried fish platter is wonderful but the only drawback there is: We have been there after 5 to get...More

Very casual, come as you are. Go for the food not the décor. I had the grilled shrimp - larger, well-seasoned, juicy, fresh shrimp. My husband had the grilled chicken. Many dishes have similar seasoning but all were very good. Bring your own beer or...More
