CBD Provisions is 'Smashingly Good,' & More Reviews

Leslie Brenner reviewed CBD Provisions: The new Consilient venture at The Joule is "smashingly good." Cocktails are "are among the best in town," the restaurant itself is beautiful, and service is "absolutely spot-on." Chef Michael Sindoni's "modern Texan" fare is adventurous and inventive, from starters like toasts topped with avocado and cobia ceviche or "meaty fried pig tails" in a zingy...

10 Places to Eat Queso, the Unofficial State Food of Texas

Although queso is not actually the official state food of Texas — that honor belongs to chili — it probably should be. The delicious, delightfully trashy cheesy goo is available just about everywhere, from lowly dive bars to significantly more upscale establishments, but not all quesos are created equally. Here's a roundup of ten standout versions of queso, from traditional to versions doctored...

Alligator Cafe (Softly) Splashes Into Deep Ellum Tonight

It's been a banner — some might venture to say epic — couple of weeks for Deep Ellum: Plans for a Wild About Harry's came to light, Monkey King debuted with soup dumplings, Tanoshii Ramen finally opened, and now Cajun/Creole favorite Alligator Cafe is moving into the neighborhood with a second location at 2912 Elm Street.

The new 'Gator's interior is quite different from the minimalist...

Alligator Cafe Snaps Up Old Rosemont Space

Awesome news for Deep Ellum denizens: Alligator Cafe is moving in. The Cajun cuisine favorite that moved on up from its Old East Dallas digs to a shinier, newer Casa Linda location last spring is now taking over the old Rosemont space on Elm Street for a second location. (Chef Tracy Miller's breakfast-and-lunch spot was open there for just 8 months.)

Nancy Nichols reports that the new location...

I love this place for lunch when I am in the area.  Staff is always nice and the kitchen is efficient.

My best friend is from Southeast Texas, so I've had my fair share of Cajun food...and I've got to say this place just doesn't have it.

Not bad! I can't say it's the best cajun food i've ever had but this location is far better than the Deep Ellum location.  Good spot if you want to branch out and experience something new.

it's obvious that the owner and/or associates make fake reviews on here

OK forgot I told myself I'd never go back because it's so loud there you can't hear yourself think. The food is awesome but not worth having to put up with all the noise. They really should hang some rugs on the walls to absorb some of the noise. We had to keep asking our party and the wait staff to repeat themselves. After this visit I will never go back unless it's carry out and doubt even then.

This authentic cafe brings a taste of Louisiana to Texas. Famous for their creole and cajun cuisine, The Alligator Cafe has all the traditional favorites including plenty of fried options. From seafood, chicken, gumbo, salads and sandwiches, the cafe has plenty of offerings to choose from. Locals rave about the catfish fillets, the po' boys, and shrimp ettouffee. If you're really adventurous,...

Chef Ivan Pugh is throwing a Cajun/Creole party six days a week. His extensive menu includes crawfish étouffée, chicken jambalaya, and pork and sausage boudin balls. Go ahead and try the alligator. It tastes like chicken, and your friends will be impressed.

In its new Casa Linda Plaza home, Alligator Cafe serves up Cajun and Creole flavors with casual confidence. Live music Thursday through Saturday nights can make dinner a clangorous proposition, but it’s all in good N’awlins-style fun. Classics from étouffée to gumbo to po’ boys offer a bright and filling bit of the sultry Big Easy right in Big D. Merritt Martin, GuideReview: Alligator Cafe...

Great Alligator tail entrees and traditional southern cooking by Chef Ivan. Offering dine-in, carry-out, catering and live music.
