5 Ways to Eat Catfish at Razzoo’s!

Catfish is a staple of Cajun cuisine. It’s pretty hard to beat pipin’ hot, flaky catfish fresh from the Gulf.

Good news: Razzoo’s Cajun Café has not 1 – but 5 – different ways for you to enjoy catfish this week. So dig in and grab one of these delicious platters today!


Fried Catfish

Ah yes – one of our most popular dishes and for very good reason. Razzoo’s has a knack for frying up just about anything, and the catfish is sure to please. Ours is cut into strips and fried, giving you plenty of fried goodness, then served with French fries, corn on the cob, hushpuppies, tartar sauce, and cocktail sauce. Decide how hungry you are though…this one comes in 2 portion sizes: Fried Cat Basket (big) or Fried Cat Platter (bigger). Prepare to be full either way!

Jalapeno Catfish

If you like the taste of fried catfish but want to try something new, go with the jalapeno catfish! Our fried catfish filet is drizzled in a creamy jalapeno gravy and served with fresh vegetables and buttered French bread. Good eatin’!


Blackened Catfish

Equally as delicious, the blackened catfish is generously basted in butter and coated in Cajun seasonings, then blackened to perfection. Plus: you get a generous dose of dirty rice, veggies, and French bread.


Stuff’d Catfish

If you’ve come hungry, then look no further than the stuff’d fish. You’ll get tender catfish filet stuffed with shrimp and crab stuffing, then slathered in crawfish butter sauce. It’s mighty delicious, just not great for your waistline.


Combo Platter Catfish

Can’t decide between catfish and your other seafood favorites?! You don’t have to! Order the Combo Platter: fried catfish, shrimp, and crawfish tails, all served with French fries, corn on the cob, and hushpuppies.


What are you waiting for?! Head to a Razzoo’s Cajun Café near you to enjoy the best catfish in Texas – just the way you like it! Proudly serving guests in Round Rock, Lewisville, Tyler, College Station, Fort Worth, and more.

Razzoo’s: More Than Just Fried Food

When people think Razzoo’s Cajun Café, they normally think about all of the delicious fried foods on our menu. We’re talking Rat Toes, Fried Shrimp, Fried Pickles, Fried Catfish, etc.

But folks – Razzoo’s is so much more than that!

Sure, our fried food is pretty fantastic if we do say so ourselves, but Razzoo’s has other non-fried menu offerings that are just as delicious.

Ready to hear about some of our favorites? Read on—

Stuff’d Fish or Shrimp

The menu even says this one is “real great” – and for good reason! Who wouldn’t want to experience tender, flaky fish, stuffed with our crab and shrimp stuffin’, then drizzled with creamy crawfish butter sauce. Is shrimp your favorite? Then order our jumbo shrimp stuffed with crab, coated in a creamy sauce. It’s the stuff of dreams I tell ya.

Grilled Gator Tail

A delicacy of the Gulf coast, when in season, gator tail sells out fast! Try this Cajun favorite served with jambalaya and our special BBQ “ouch” sauce. No frying required.

Cajun Tricky Fish

Razzoo’s has perfected the art of creating moist, tender, melt-in-your-mouth blackened chicken and fish, and the Cajun Tricky Fish is no exception. Pair with our crawfish etoufee and dirty rice, and it’s a match made in heaven.

Cajun Combo Skillet

Love experiencing the best Cajun food in Texas but have a hard time choosing just one thing? Order the Cajun Combo Skillet and enjoy grilled Andouille sausage, crawfish etoufee, shrimp creole, red beanz and rice, corn on the cob, and French bread – all in one meal. We might be rolling you out of here, but we guarantee you’ll be fat and happy!

So you see – Razzoo’s is more than the best fried Cajun food. We’re the best Cajun food period – fried or not. Enjoy one of these non-fried favorites on your next visit to your local Razzoo’s Cajun Café!

Where Does Razzoo's Get its Oysters?

It’s peak season for oysters in Texas, and Razzoo’s has the best around. As you’d expect from the best Cajun restaurant in Texas, we get ours fresh from a premier oyster supplier right here on the Texas Gulf Coast: Jeri’s Seafood.


Family Owned & Operated

There’s something about supporting local “mom and pop” establishments that just makes use feel good. Jeri’s Seafood was founded in 1970 and is currently operated by 3 generations of the same family. Harvesting the best, highest quality fresh oysters is what they do.


Sustainable Oyster Farming

Jeri’s Seafood does it differently and we applaud the company for caring about the environment and not just the bottom line. Back in 1968, Ben Nelson – founder of Jeri’s Seafood – played a very active role in ending shell reef mining in Galveston Bay by proving live oyster reefs were unlawfully being mined.

Today, sustainability is at the forefront of what they do. Jeri’s Seafood builds all of its own reefs and carefully harvests them with the ecosystem in mind. They take pride in being “sustainable” before sustainable was cool! Each year, Jeri’s plants over 20,000 tons of rock and shell in the ocean, creating reefs that produce over 90% of their oyster harvest each year. That’s pretty impressive stuff.


Superior Quality

Each of the Jeri’s Seafood reefs are meticulously cared for and harvested with quality in mind. Jeri’s Seafood uses FDA, DSHS, and HACCP certified processing methods to guarantee the freshest product possible.

Stick to your Resolution with Rabbit Food Wednesdays at Razzoo's! we have a confession to make…the food at Razzoo’s Cajun Cafe isn’t exactly “healthy” food.

Shocker right?!

While we love all things fried and battered (and we know you do too!), Razzoo’s does have a few things on the menu that can help you stick to your New Year’s Resolutions and eat a healthy, low calorie meal.


Introducing Rabbit Food Wednesdays at Razzoo’s!


Every Wednesday, join us for our lunch special, chock full of tasty, healthy goodness.

Served from 11am to 3pm, take advantage of Rabbit Food Wednesdays by ordering any of our salad entrees, including the Caesar Salad and the Chopped Salad. You’ll receive the salad, topped with your choice of blackened chicken or fried shrimp, plus a drink, for just $7!

It’s an easy way to eat your greens! And while a salad may not be our first choice for amazing Cajun food, our salads are fully loaded and delicious:

·      Razzoo’s Chopped Salad: We start with a bed of crispy greens, then stack it high with crispy bacon, tomatoes, cucumbers, diced boiled egg, cheese, and fried onions. Crispy onions not on your diet? Ditch the onions, substitute a light dressing, and you’re under 600 calories! You can even add some blackened chicken for protein, and you may not even realize you’re eating “diet” food.



·      Razzoo’s Caesar Salad: Well it has greens, so that makes it healthy, right? After the greens, we’ll be the first to admit it’s not exactly low calorie, but it is tasty! Romaine lettuce, creamy house Caesar dressing, homemade croutons, and flaky Parmesan cheese make for one great salad. We love adding a few crispy fried shrimp to the top… perfection.
