When’s the Last Time You Had these Cajun Favorites?

So let’s be honest: when was the last time you let yourself indulge in one of these Cajun favorites? Are there certain Cajun dishes you’ve just been too chicken to try?

There’s never been a better time that NOW to get your Cajun food fix with one of these favorites!

Gator Tail

Oh boy – the most ordered item on the menu (okay besides the rat toes) is our gator tail, and if you’ve never tried it, then you’re definitely missing out! Get it grilled or fried. The fried is served with fries and our “ouch” sauce; the grilled is served over a bed of jambalaya with “ouch” sauce. Either way – you’re in for a Cajun treat.

Andouille Sliders

This is a newer menu item, and one that has quickly grown in popularity! You can order them as an appetizer to whet your palette for a big bowl of gumbo or something – or eat them as a meal. The sliders are made in French baguette, each stuffed with andouille sausage basted in BBQ sauce and fresh slaw. Add a pile of potato chips on the side and your meal is complete.

Gator Punch

Can we shift gears and talk about drinks for a minute?! Our Cajun favorites go beyond the food, as we’ve got a slew of great Cajun style cocktails, including our Hurrycane on the Rocks and the famous Razzoo’s Gator Punch. Trash can drinks never looked – or tasted! – so good with each fish bowl glass (get it for 4 or 2) adorned in classy Mardi Gras beads and then loaded with our favorite liquor.


Gumbeaux – or gumbo as most call it – is a Cajun staple and one we take pride in here at Razzoo’s Cajun Café. There is no right or wrong way to make gumbo (although many argue that there is), so we offer two of the most popular ways to prepare it: with seafood or with chicken and Andouille sausage. Both are excellent choices for a brisk Fall day in North Texas!

Ready to get your Cajun on?! Join us at Razzoo’s Cajun Café in Fort Worth, Round Rock, Lewisville, Tyler, Lubbock, College Station, and more to order these, and other, Cajun favorites.  

Customer Favorites: Gator Tail

Want to eat like a real Cajun?!


You haven’t lived until you’ve tried the delicious – and a little weird – gator tail. Razzoo’s serves it up both grilled and fried (an off menu favorite!) and it’s by far one of our most popular menu items.


When in season, gator tail is a delicacy at Razzoo’s Cajun Café. Did you know that gators aren’t really raised for their meat? Sure, it’s a nice by-product, but gator farmers raise alligators for their skins. So if the economy tanks and fancy people stop buying alligator skin boots, then we’ve got a problem.


It happened to us back in 2008 when the recession hit. Cajun restaurants like ours were clamoring for alligator meat, the meat was very hard to come by, prices went sky high, and we were forced to raise our prices. But you know what?! We kept selling out anyway. To try to control the demand and not run out of product we actually took the fried gator appetizer off our menu, keeping only the grilled alligator entree option.  And we sold out anyway! Our guests just can’t get enough of that Cajun gator tail!


Grilled Gator Tail is a real Cajun treat that we serve over a big bed of jambalaya and smother with our BBQ “ouch” sauce.  Down home cookin’ doesn’t get much better!

Fried Gator Tail - we’ll let you in on a little secret.  It may not be on the menu…but that doesn’t stop insiders from ordering up fried gator at it’s finest. It’s so popular, in fact, that Fried Gator Tail has not been printed on our menu in over seven years, but it is still the #3 most popular menu item at Razzoo’s – falling behind only the Rat Toes and Fried Pickles in total orders! So if you’re looking to try gator meat, do what the regulars do and order it crispy.


Gator meat is in season and available now at Razzoo’s Cajun Café – the best Cajun restaurant in Texas!
