Po’Boys & Burgers – The Sandwiches of Razzoo’s!

Razzoo’s isn’t really known as a sandwich shop.

 

And we’ll be the first to admit…we don’t do traditional “sandwiches.” What we do have are some pretty darn amazing New Orleans style po’boys and even burgers! Read on to learn more about Cajun po’boys and more:

 

Cajun Po’Boys

 

What were once served to the “poor boys” on the streets of New Orleans (yes, that’s how they got their name) are now a house staple to the guests here at Razzoo’s Cajun Café! There’s nothing like sinking your teeth into that crusty French bread and savoring the flavors of fried seafood inside. At Razzoo’s, you’ll find our traditional po’boys can be ordered 4 ways: with fried popcorn shrimp, fried catfish, blackened tilapia, or blackened chicken breast. Each sandwich comes loaded with lettuce, tomato, pickles, onion, and our house sauce, plus you’ll get some fresh jalapeno pups and French fries on the side! And we use a crusty French baguette that is the perfect balance of crunch on the outside, and spongy soft bread on the inside.

Burgers

 

For the mighty few who just have to order a burger in our Cajun restaurant, we’ve got you covered! Try the Big Easy Cheeseburger which is a half pound patty on a buttery, toasted bun, served with all the trimmings including bacon, cheese, and our homemade smoky sauce. Looking for something more adventurous? Then give the Pimento Cheeseburger a try! This tasty burger is slathered in our pimento cheese, then served with bacon – because what burger isn’t better with bacon? You’ll also get some pretty delicious fried onions on the side as a garnish – score!

 

Ready to try one of our “sandwiches” at Razzoo’s Cajun Cafe? The po’boys and burgers are calling your name! Join us for lunch or dinner for the best Cajun food in Texas and North Carolina! We’ll save you a seat.

 

3 Reasons to Visit the World Famous Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival

If you love crawfish and all things Cajun as much as we do, then do yourself a favor and mark your calendar now for the world famous Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival!

 

Coming Soon: Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival

May 4-6, 2018

Breaux Bridge, Louisiana

 

No, this event is not at Razzoo’s Cajun Café – or even in Texas for that matter - but it’s worth the drive. Each year the fine folks of Breaux Bridge, Louisiana throw the biggest Cajun crawfish party we’ve ever seen!

 

Why Breaux Bridge?

 

In 1959, Breaux Bridge was given the title of “crawfish capital of the world” by the Louisiana legislature. Determined to make good on such a prestigious title, the folks of Breaux Bridge began the festival in 1960. It’s grown each year, with nearly 40,000 flocking to Breaux Bridge each year for the festival!

 

What Can I Expect at the Festival?

 

 

Here are 3 reasons you must visit this festival:

 

·      Cajun Crawfish Galore: If you’re a crawfish fan, then you’ll think you died and went to heaven at the Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival. Order up a bowl of crawfish bisque, a crawdog, fried crawfish, or just plain ‘ol Cajun crawfish boiled to perfection. No matter how you like your crawfish, there’s no shortage of ways to enjoy it.

 

·      Family Fun: Bring the whole family, because there are rides and midway for all! Arrive early on Sunday to experience the fanfare of the parade, with beautiful floats and of course – more crawfish.

 

·      Soulful Zydeco Music: As Texans, we don’t often hear the soulful sounds of Cajun Zydeco music. All the best Zydeco and Cajun bands play the Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival, so plan to take in the sights and sounds, or even enter one of the dance contests!

 

Make your calendars to visit the Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival, and in the meantime, visit us at Razzoo’s Cajun Café for freshly boiled crawfish ready to be devoured! We’re the best Cajun restaurant in Texas for a reason.

Mythbusters: The Crawfish Edition

Ever attend a crawfish boil with some Bubba and wonder how many of the crawfish “facts” he’s spewing are actually facts? Lots of rumors surround the little mudbugs, but which are actually true? Razzoo’s Cajun Café is here to set the record straight with Mythbusters: The Crawfish Edition.

 

Myth 1: Clean Crawfish with Salt Before Boiling To Remove Impurities.

 

According to the LSU Ag Center, salt doesn’t do anything to help “purge the impurities” in crawfish. Soaking in cold water (be it fresh or salted) mainly just cleans the dirt off their exteriors and gills - which you want to do because, you know, dirty food is kind of gross.  Be sure to separate out the ones that float to make sure they aren’t dead.   

 

 

Myth 2: Crawfish are High in Fat

 

Wrong again. A nutritionist for the LSU Ag Center says that they are in fact low in fat, especially saturated fat. This myth is usually tied to the yellow/orange substance in the head and sometimes on the tail that many call “fat.” The stuff in the head is not fat, but is in fact an organ.  (You’re welcome.)

 

Myth 3: Crawfish are Not Part of a Healthy Diet

 

That depends on how you cook ‘em! Crawfish are naturally low in fat and contain good omega-3 fatty acids. They are also rich in protein, iron, vitamin B12, and other minerals necessary for a healthy diet. So, assuming you’re not deep frying them and slathering them in tartar sauce, they’re really a very healthy meal.

 

Myth 4: Don’t Eat a Crawfish with a Straight Tail.

 

OK - this is where we differ with the “experts”.  They tell us that straight tails are perfectly fine to eat; that it doesn’t mean that they were dead before cooking, just that they may have been crowded in the pot and were boiled that way. We’re not buying it.  We’re sticking with what our Mama told us on this one and skipping the straight tails - and we’ll never serve them to you, either.

 

Myth 5: Crawfish eaters are better lovers.  

 

This is not a myth at all and is, in fact, completely true.  We’re not sure how it got on the list.  

 

Myth 6: I Must Go to Louisiana for Fresh, Louisiana Crawfish.

 

Wrong! Razzoo’s Cajun Café has shipments of Louisiana crawfish arriving at least three times per week from our premium suppliers. Only the best crawfish in Texas, served with corn on the cob and spicy red potatoes for just $7.99/lb!  (Prices are subject to change so please check with your server for the most up to date pricing)
