Alligator Cafe Restaurant Review

: Deep Ellum gets a little taste of New Orleans with the arrival of this longstanding East Dallas favorite’s second location. Counter service is the name of the game here, and while the ultra-modern blonde wood booths and retro light fixtures were clearly left behind by the previous tenant, the ‘Gator has imbued the place with a little Cajun flair via plenty of lime green paint. All the bayou favorites like gumbo, jambalaya, and a killer crawfish etouffée are present (the brave order it “Voodoo-style” for extra spice), plus crispy fried boudin balls, a spicy blackened burger and a couple items you probably won’t find in Louisiana, such as blackened crawfish queso and spicy crawfish enchiladas flanked by red beans and rice.
