Zydeco Louisiana Diner

Places-Eat-Zydeco Louisiana Diner-sign-1

Let's just say you don’t come to this downtown cafeteria-style diner to eat healthy—you come to eat stick-to-your-ribs Cajun cooking prepared fresh daily from family recipes handed-down for three generations. Temptations include bacon-infused black eyed peas, moist corn bread, mashed potatoes saturated with butter, savory gumbo, awesome shrimp po-boys, jambalaya and a great seasonal crawfish étouffée. Zydeco is a great lunchtime spot when you’re in a hurry but want a hearty home-style meal. The service is fast and as friendly as a bunch of small-town church ladies and while this is a popular place, it's also convenient, with open tables, free parking, and a Metro station nearby. Zydeco's spicy crawfish are unrivaled, but plan on returning to the office with a few stains on your shirt and a smile on your face.

Throwing a crawfish boil? Zydeco caters.
