Eight months or so into her pregnancy, what are Beyoncé's cravings? Apparently, it's not ketchup, hot sauce or ice cream — it's cuisine of the Cajun variety.

Beyonce, Tina Knowles and Jay-Z were spotted sharing a family meal at Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen near Reliant Stadium on Tuesday afternoon, just hours before the next stop on Jay-Z and Kanye West's Watch The Throne tour: American Airlines Center in Dallas.

True to form, the Dallas concert started 90 minutes late, according to Mario Tarradell, music critic for the Dallas Morning News.

In the late afternoon, Twitter exploded with diners and wait staff excited to see the celebrity trio:

"At pappadeaux's working and beyonce jay z and her mom are here lol that's pretty neat," said @_GinaMartin.

"Aye Jay Z and Beyonce up here @ Pappadeaux grubbin and shid... They had bodyguards like the president," tweeted @AllRedAttire.

"&shes BiG pregnant guys," claimed @Luv_Milan, and @DTooson noted that Beyoncé was wearing "a pregnant woman dress."

Tweeters at the restaurant say that Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Tina were put in a back "VIP" section of the restaurant with a heavy security presence.

Fans are still reeling from the celeb sighting (or the missed opportunity), but Pappadeaux's management is mum on the matter. One general manager told CultureMap, "That was a rumor. It didn't happen." However, when a waitress there was contacted she said she'd been told to refer Beyoncé questions to the general manager.
