Being from New Orleans, I'm always critical of Cajun restaurants. This one tries hard, by offering many Cajun/creole style dishes, but they just don't taste right. Some things are overcooked or even prepared with different spices. Still, this is a very popular lunch locale.

Anytime I'm in Marshall, Cajun Tex is a must! From their chicken wings to their pasta, or try their hamburger or fish tacos. You can't go wrong. Great atmosphere and excellent food!

I am sorry I do not like stand up orders at this price point. I have no other reason not giving this place a four. I will see if I can change it. The food was tasty.

Love the grilled shrimp and dirty rice special on Wednesday lunch! It's a small plate but all you need...inexpensive too

It was allright but I will not rush to make it back. Different strokes for different folks I guess. Not a hole in the wall.

I really enjoyed the food at this restaurant. Everything was hot and fresh with very good flavor. All the staff was friendly. I would drive to Marshall to eat here as in our town the food is not as good as it is here.

We went by Friday night, but didn't stay, the place was packed. We wondered if it could really be that good. It was! We went back Sat. afternoon and it was great. Had the cajun surprise...if you love cornbread and cawlfish tails this is what to order. Spicy but not hot.. there must have been a half pound of tails... More
