We were in town for the weekend and decided we hadn't had a Papa Roux since we moved. I always used to love the chicken creole when we lived there. I've tried a couple of Cajun places here in Louisville, but nothing every compared. I...More

Been going to this place for years and it's never disappointing. Poboys and sides are all good. Garlic stew too hot for me but most love it. Unlimited sides so prepare to be filled. Owners and staff are great people who treat everyone like regulars

I ordered the crawfish jambalaya. The jambalaya was just all right, but the fried crawfish was really good. If you eat at the restaurant then you can get free sides. I got the coleslaw, cornbread, and bread pudding. All of these sides were very good....More

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL. A little quirky, and the food was beyond great. I love canjun and what is served here is some of the best I've had. Thank you trip advisor for guiding us here. Great food/great service/great atmosphere.

Stopped by for lunch today and had the catfish posted boy. It was sloppy from the coleslaw topping but very bland. The unlimited sides are an interesting idea but the two I tried (red beans and chili) were poor. The red bean were flavorless. The...More

Not the best Cajun in town but damn close. But a great way to try Cajun food for the first time. Purchase either some type Po Boy or stew and get unlimited sides of dishes and breads. This is on dine in only, so definitely...More

While on a business trip with my husband, we found Papa Roux. We were looking for good food, from a non-chain restaurant. This restaurant was exactly what we were looking for. This is not the restaurant for you if you are looking for fine dining...More
