Inspired by rural French cooking, Cajun food originated in the Southern United States in the 18th century. Many of the dishes are rooted in seafood, and the cuisine is known for its spicy notes and heartiness. To enjoy the best Cajun food in Dallas, order takeout from one of these restaurants near our Uptown Dallas apartments:
A Dallas favorite since 1991, Razzoo's serves an array of authentic dishes. The chefs start their day early to create from scratch. They use the finest ingredients and keep the menu fresh and exciting. Offerings include fried shrimp po'boys, zydeco pasta, and Cajun tricky fish. The cafe offers online ordering for pickup.
At the Swamp Cafe, you'll find some of the best Cajun food in Dallas. A few of the dishes aren't served anywhere else in DFW. Chef David worked in New Orleans for nearly 28 years before coming to Dallas. He makes the sauces in-house and opens the restaurant for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Offerings include bourbon fried chicken, Pontchartrain fried shrimp, and tofu-veggie po'boys. Don't forget to add the beignets to your takeout order.
Nola Brasserie brings a taste of Louisiana to Texas. The chefs enjoy preparing homemade meals. They stretch their five-ingredient pizza dough and bake individual servings of their Southern comfort pecan pie. For dinner, try the crawfish etouffee, Cajun club sandwich, or redfish Acadian. Enjoy with the Maison salad, and place an online order for carryout. The restaurant opens daily at 11:00 a.m.
These are just a few of the local eateries offering convenient takeout. You can also enjoy gourmet pizza and more. To become a resident of The Ashton, please contact us. We will offer a tour of our Dallas luxury apartments so you can see our vibrant community firsthand.
