This chain is the most overrated tourist trap in the Houston area. They appeal to tourists who think they are eating “Cajun” and have too much money to spend on overpriced mediocre food. There ARE much better authentic Cajun restaurants with much better pricing. Another...More

Pappadeaux is probably the only place I’ll visit and don’t care that they don’t have happy hour specials- the drinks are that good! The Grand Hennessy is a great drink for anyone and pairs well with all of their appetizers. Definitely worth the hype!

Without having to drive to Louisiana, you can pretend you’re there at Pappadeaux! Sit at the bar and enjoy the people and busy bartenders....relax with some of the best Cajun seafood in Houston! The courtyard ambiance can’t be beat either!
