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.

 

New Wines at Razzoo’s Cajun Café!

That’s right folks – we’re upping our game and giving you more than just “white, red, or pink.” You’ve asked and we’ve answered – Razzoo’s Cajun Café brings you new wines available on our menu now! Here are just a few of the new wine specials in Texas offered now at Razzoo’s:

 

Joseph Carr Chardonnay

If you are a white wine drinker, then you will love our new chardonnay – the Joseph Carr Sonoma Coast Chardonnay. Sourced from (you guessed it!) the Sonoma Coast in California, the grapes were harvested at their peak for perfect acidity and flavor. As the wine hits your lips, you’ll taste notes of fruity lemon, peach, and even almond. Pairs great with our blackened fish or chicken!

Coppola Pinot Grigio

Razzoo’s selected this as one of our new wines because it offers great versatility and drinkability. Coppola picks the grapes at their peak age, ensuring maximum flavor before pressing. We’re pretty sure you will love the hints of citrus, honey, and floral blossoms that can be tasted in each delicious sip.

Simi Merlot

This rich red Merlot is from the Alexander Valley of Sonoma County. (Yeah, that doesn’t mean much to us country folk either, but we know it makes this merlot taste pretty darn good.) Each sip brings a bold, full-bodied flavor with hints of spice and cherry. We love it with our Crawfish Etoufee and other Cajun food at Razzoo’s.

Decoy Pinot Noir

Looking for a lighter option to compliment the bold spicy flavors of our shrimp creole? Decoy Pinot Noir is another great red! The versatility and fresh flavor of this wine can’t be beat! If you’re a red wine drinker, order a glass of this and you won’t be disappointed.

Razzoo’s offers daily drink specials at all of our locations, including wine specials in Texas at our locations in Lewisville, Round Rock, College Station, Garland, Fort Worth and more. Join us today for a glass of wine on the patio!

Interested in Zydeco Music? Check out these Popular Artists Today!

Zydeco music is a genre all it’s own. And while it’s very popular in Cajun country, we’ve discovered that folks here in Texas have very little reference for what zydeco music is or who the top artists are!

 

Don’t fret – Razzoo’s is here to help! Here’s a little info on zydeco music and popular artists to find on Spotify today!

 

The History of Zydeco

Zydeco music dates back to the late 1600s when French colonists sailed over to the New World to settle the land now known as Louisiana. Louisiana became a melting pot of cultures, and out of that melting pot, zydeco music was birthed. French Creoles formed the genre as a blend of blues, R&B, reggae, and soul, commonly played at house dances. For that reason, you’ll find zydeco music to be upbeat and bluesy, infused with elements of traditional songs for dancing. It’s hard to listen to zydeco without getting the urge to tap your tow or sway to the beat.

 

Top Zydeco Artists

We’ll admit, knowing where to start when finding the best zydeco music can be tricky. So in order to give you the best list possible, we’ve pulled the Top 40 List from Clarence’s Baton Rouge Cajun Radio Show. Clarence is a Cajun DJ in Baton Rouge, and since he’s right smack dab in the heart of Louisiana, we’ll trust he knows a thing or two about zydeco. Below is his list of top artists, along with their top songs:

·      Boozoo Chavis - Dog Hill, Uncle Bud, Dance All Night

·      Rockin' Sidney - Don't Mess With My Toot-Toot

·      Morris Francis - Fun in Acadiana

·      Fernest Arceneau - Zydeco Boogaloo, It's Allright, Midnight Train

·      Beau Jocque - Cornbread, Get It, Beau Jocque

·      Clifton Chenier - Tu Le Ton Son Ton, Hot Tamale Baby

·      John Delafose - Joe Pete A Deux Femme

·      Chris Ardoin and Double Clutchin'-Lake Charles Connection,Pass The Dutchy

·      Rosie Ledet - I'm Gonna Take Care Of Your Dog

·      Nathan and the Zydeco Chachas - Everything On The Hog, Steady Rock

·      Willis Prudhomme - My Woman is a Salty Dog, Why You Wanna Make Me Cry

·      Donna Angelle - Old Man's Sweetheart

·      Leo Thomas - Why You Wanna Make Me Cry

·      Queen Ida - Frisco Zydeco, Ful Il Sa

·      Nathan and the Zydeco Cha-Chas - Steady Rock

·      Buckwheat Zydeco - Boogaloo, Ma 'Tite Fille

·      Zydeco Force - On My Way, Zydeco Extravaganza, Oh Madeleine

·      Step Rideau - Standing Room Only

·      C.J. Chenier - It's Alright, The Power of Love

·      Leroy Thomas - Somebody's Lookin' For Ya
