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!

You know it's good when one in our group said "best chicken ever".... everyone agreed their dinner was great. Super night out thanks to a perfect dinner at Dudleys.

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.

We enjoyed our trip to Dudley's very much- there were 4 of us and we were all very pleased with our food and the service was great, too.

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.

A must visit whenever we are in Longview for the best Cajun food anywhere. Many options but the crawfish combo is our favorite.

Dudley's Cajun is as good or better than any I've had in Louisiana. Always fresh and seasoned just right. From jambalaya, to crawfish etouffee, to crawfish and meat pies, fried shrimp....it's all great!

Good crawfish etouffe and fried tails. A little saltier than I prefer, but that's not unusual for Cajun food. Music from the 60's reminds me of WTIX (New Orleans AM radio station) of that era. I kept half expecting to hear a "Pontchatrain Beach" commercial. Beer was cold and served in a frosty mug.

I have never had crawfish etouffee that even comes close to Dudleys! It is accompanied by yummy rolls and creamy coleslaw! It's delicious!

I really don't understand why Dudley's gets such great reviews. We tried the enchiladas and a couple other dishes. The enchiladas were EXTREMELY salty. The service was ho hum, and Dudley seemed annoyed and unhappy to be there. We won't be back.
