“better than johnny cace's”
Reviewed 20 May 2013

Better value and for the most part better food than J. Caces

Not the best Cajun food by any measure but tolerable if you cannot drive to southern texas or louisianna

“Fresh from Gulf”
Reviewed 9 May 2013

This is an outstanding cajun restaurant with fresh seafood, crawfish, and the like! Dinner portions were way more than I could eat so I had plenty next day for lunch! Fried shrimp and crawfish etoufee is what I have eaten there. Atmosphere is relaxed and open. Great place for lunch with co-workers.

“Better than Louisiana”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

After having disappointing food in various cajun restaurants in Louisiana, were surprised to find a cajun restaurant with better food in Texas.
After being introduced to Dudley's a couple of months ago, now whenever we are in the Longview area, Dudley's is our restaurant of choice.
Nothing fancy here, just honest home cooking Cajun style. Seafood is fresh, spices just right, fresh homemade cole slaw to start every meal. Service was quick and friendly, always checking but never pushy.

Wife loves the boiled shrimp while I go for grilled shrimp. The Bread Pudding was excellent.

Decor is laid-back country with accents of Mardi Gras and the Saints. Not too big and tables are close together so you might rub elbows with the people at the next table. But that's okay as everyone is smiling and friendly. Doors open at 5 and people are starting to waiting at 4:30.

“From a Louisiana perspective”
Reviewed 30 April 2013

It was good enough that I would return in the future, but being from Louisiana, I hope to eventually find something better. As of now, it is in my opinion, the best option for Cajun style seafood in Longview, but for Longview to be this close to the Louisiana border, you would think they would have a better selection of restaurants. Service was good. My friends from a little further north really enjoyed their meals. I enjoyed my cup of Gumbo; however, my shrimp were a little over cooked, but not so much so that they were bad and the catfish needs a little more kick to it, not quite enough spice in the batter.
