Great Experience – Came to Houston looking for some good Cajun and found it. I will check it out everytime I come back to the city.
Hole-in-the-wall with excellent food – Don't expect to be dazzled by the decor - just expect some honest-to-goodness southern Louisiana home cooking. It's cafeteria style with several daily plate lunch specials offered on a rotating basis throughout the week. My personal favorite is the chicken fricasse which is only available on Wednesdays. I also love the chicken and sausage jambalaya, the red beans and rice (daily), the gumbos (daily), and the cornbread. Very generous portions for a modest price makes this place very hard to beat!
Best cajun food in Houston – I've been coming here for about five years now and have never had a bad experience, My favorite is the chicken fricassee on Wednesday, the flavor is incredible. I'm a fan of a good dark roux and they definately have it going on with the gumbo. The ambiance isn't the best, and its difficult to eat healthy here but if you want great flavorful food you will love Zydecos.
Favorite Friday Lunches -- Stuffed Pork Chops – Whenever I'm home I make a point to go back to Zydeco's. One of the many things I miss about working downtown was the short walk over to the Louisiana Zydeco's for the ridiculously deeee-lish SPC as we lovingly call it. Get there early cuz when they run out it's devastating. But the jambalaya and red beans and rice make up for it, and OMG the size of those helpings!!! Now my mouth is watering!!!!
Editorial Review – Colorful, authentic and carefree, this downtown roadhouse diner serves up Cajun favorites such as jambalaya and stuffed pork chops for lunch.
like being back home in La. – This, I told my friend, is proper cajun eatin' Big tables for crawfish, pictures of Louisiana on the walls. I gave them a challenge - crawfish etoufee. Many restaurants screw this up due to chewy crawfish or improper spices. This was as good as Ive had. Spicy enough to make my sinuses open up. Tender crawfish making me think its going to be a good year for em after two bad ones. The jalapeno cornbread on the side was some of the best Ive had. An excellent eating experience. All this for $6-8 dollars for most entrees. As they come with two sides, this will fill up just about anybody. Ill probably split it with my wife on my next visit, real soon! Trolley bus D will bring you straight to it from downtown Houston for free.
Great Cajun Food! – Zydeco's is one of the 'staples' of lunchtime downtown. I've eaten there several dozen times and it's always good. Pretty authentic cajun.
