Dudley’s Cajun Cafe
One need not cross the Louisiana line to enjoy authentic Cajun food. As crawfish season was just beginning when we stopped by this little Cajun diner, we started off by sharing an order of fried crawfish tails. A younger diner was happy with her Cajun fried chicken tenders, good-naturedly deeming them “just a little bit spicy,” and the rest of us split a “Build Your Own” seafood platter, contentedly feasting on fried catfish, shrimp, oysters, and crab cakes along with hush puppies and a side of coleslaw. Expect a wait for weekday lunch and weekend dinner.
