Liked the diner atmosphere. Expensive menu. Good service. Fried crawfish were excellent but étouffée was just OK and the crawfish were scarce. OK for Longview, I guess, but there's much better Cajun to be had.

Longtime Longview eatery for Cajun Lovers! Authentic, great food and good prices! Everything is fresh and delicious. Try the crawfish enchiladas! Finish it off with chocolate pie that's to die for.

Was looking to try some Cajun while in east Texas visiting family. This little cafe fit the bill. Had blackened shrimp & catfish. Very good. Loved the place as feels authentic. Would eat here again if ever in Longview maybe even try some crawfish next time.

The blackened shrimp, blackened tilapia, blackened catfish, meat pies, dirty rice, banana pudding, even the rolls....everything I've ever ordered at this establishment has more than exceeded my expectations. And the remoulade sauce CANNOT BE BEATEN!!! You will not be disappointed!

Dudley's Cajun Restaurant is the best anywhere. All of the menu items are spectacular, served very quickly by a great staff. The banana pudding and bread pudding cannot be beat. The meat and crawfish pies served over rice are excellent, as is all of their menu items. If you are in Longview, it is a must stop.

Always eat here when in town. Great selection, great service, friendly crowd. I always get the Hank Williams special for dinner and crab puppies for appetizer -- stuffed shrimp also a stand out.Dudley was injured in a catering truck fire but is doing ok.

Thank Dan H
