I love this place.. daily lunch specials have a great variety of choices.. All dishes are prepared just like home cooking. It's a great location in downtown Houston with available parking.

Went to Zydeco for a short lunch between meetings in downtown Houston. Good portion, pleasant environment. A bit spicy, but kind of expected.

Zydeco is a great Cajun cafe and buffet. Reminds me of many of the small restaurants I used to eat at in Baton Rouge

Excellent food, great value. Don't let appearance fool you. The place may appear a bit rough but the food is excellent. Love, love, love their baked chicken w/2 sides. Yum. And their chicken and sausage gumbo is the best!.

The oyster po-boy sandwich is quite tasty. It comes with homestyle fries. Medium priced for what you get. Cooked fresh when you order.
