Cajun Crawfish Dallas, a brand new destination for spicy creole seafood, just debuted quietly in Addison.

The new project located at 4866 Belt Line Road is from “Chef Sam,” who reportedly has been cooking up Creole and Cajun cuisine locally for two decades per the restaurant’s website. A recent filing with the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission also indicates that Cajun Crawfish is currently in the process of obtaining a permit to serve alcohol.

The menu boasts a long list of grilled and fried Southern specialties like oysters, shrimp, fish, chicken, crawfish, alligator and calamari that can be found on top of salads, stuffed into po’ boys, or served in baskets with fries or hush puppies. Boiled seafood bags are also on offer along with appetizers like fried pickles, crab cakes, gator bites, sweet potato fries, and onion rings. More New Orleans’ specialties round out the offerings, including seafood gumbo, crawfish or shrimp étouffée, shrimp & grits, and jambalaya pasta or rice. The dessert menu sounds especially appealing with offerings like beignets, whiskey s’mores bread pudding, bourbon peach cobbler, and lemon crunch cake.

Cajun Crawfish Dallas is now slinging its seafood Monday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday 12 to 9 p.m.
