Alligator Cafe’ in East Dallas!!!

ImageImageImageImage

Yep!  We went Cajun this time!  This place was pretty busy with only three servers.  Generally, I try not to go to a restaurant during their dinner rush, but, oops!  I did it again.  I just had to be sure that I was ready to order enough “stuff” every time the server stopped by.  Right away we ordered water, Pabst Blue Ribbon (don’t judge, it was refreshing), shiner, calamari, and crab cakes.  I just gotta say, I love when someone does fried food well.  Not too greasy or chewy, etc.  The crab cakes were on an awesome sauce that I can’t pronounce.  The calamari was served with tartar and cocktail sauce.  Both appetizers were very good.  It made waiting, which wasn’t that long, more bearable.  It’s just that time is in slow motion when you’re super hungry.  For dinner we had more beer, blackened tilapia that sat on a bed of dirty rice (instead of white rice by request) topped with an AWESOME shrimp cream sauce, fried okra, blackened alligator, blackened salmon, and fried cream corn.  I loved everything.  I don’t have to describe all the flavors, just know that it was great, and please try all this good stuff.  I see why their Chef has been on television.  Also, one of their regulars told me I should’ve got the pork chops.  Next time.  No dessert this time.  I couldn’t even finish my tilapia which I took some home as leftovers.  It was even better the second day!

Oh, I understand they sometimes have live music.  Acoustic blues and jazz I think.  Check out their website for that info.  Speaking of their website, their pictures on there do their food much more justice than mine.
