We promise an original, classic cajun menu, preparing quality dishes from scratch with only the freshest ingredients available.

Not only do we cook a mean New Orleans style gumbo, but our live music is filled with country grunge and blues tunes for your leisure and enjoyment.

Favorite Acts include Cheryl Arena, Miss Marcy, Texas Johnny Boy, Aaron Burton, and a bunch of other talented folks!

The Alligator Café can take care of your banquet, catering and office party requirements.

Send an email to Chef Ivan with the time/date/information about your event. Be sure to include your name and telephone number in the email so we can call you.

No need to go to New OrleansAl Raya

I have been many times to New Orleans primarily for the food. Over the years I have eaten in most of the well known and not so well known restaurants. However, now that I have been to the Alligator Cafe, I found cuisine as good or better in my own neighborhood…

Al Fresco or Cozy IndoorsLinda Stamport

My new favorite neighborhood restaurant. We’ve celebrated birthdays there, and I often enjoy a lunch al fresco before doing my grocery shopping. Lots of variety in the menu, and everything has been excellent so far…

Laissez Les Bon Temps RoulezRick Butler

Living in Dallas most fo my life and being from Louisiana, I’ve always been on the lookout for great Cajun/Creole food. I have finally found it!! The food is prepared with great care and authenticity with attention to every detail…
