The secret is out! Insiders know to order this favorite: Fried Gator Tail! In fact, it’s the 3rd most popular dish behind the Rat Toes and Fried Pickles (What can we say, our guests love fried food!)! When it’s in season, we know it will sell out day after day because it’s just that good.
Gator Tail: A Cajun Delicacy
Gator tail, a staple here at Razzoo’s Cajun Café, isn’t considered a delicacy to everyone. In fact, alligators aren’t actually raised for their meat; it’s the skins that bring the big bucks. So when those alligator boots are made, the alligator meat is then sold to restaurants such as ours who just love that tasty, juicy gator meat! It’s hard to believe something so good is considered a “by-product.”
Once Upon a Time, Gator Tail Wasn’t Even Officially On Our Menu.
Here’s the thing – we can’t always predict how much gator tail we’ll have on hand, and the economy plays a big role in that! When demand for fancy alligator wares tanks – then so does our supply! This exact thing happened back in 2008 when our economy hit a major recession. No one could get gator tail! Prices skyrocketed and every Cajun restaurant in Texas was trying to get gator tail. Any we got, we sold out of! We raised our prices, and guess what?!, we still sold out! We eventually took the Fried Gator Tail off the menu (leaving the Grilled Gator Tail), but it was still so popular that we sold out anyway. It’s been a hit ever since, even though it is back on the menu.
Tell Me About the Grilled Gator Tail.
Grilled gator tail is a menu staple and for good reason! Imagine a big bed of jambalaya, with grilled gator tail on top, all smothered in our signature BBQ “ouch” sauce. Served with crusty bread and southern green beans, it’s down home, southern cookin’ at its finest.
Is your mouth watering yet?! Join us this week at Razzoo’s Cajun Café and treat yourself to a Cajun delicacy – Gator Tail! We’re the #1 Cajun restaurant in Texas, home of gator tail, crawfish, oysters, gumbo, and more.
