'Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou'! Once you've eaten a hearty meal at Cajun Yard Dog you'll be happy as a clam and ready to strut your stuff in a Mardi Gras parade. The menu will have you picking and choosing for hours, but we gotta recommend an all time classic to first comers: shrimp gumbo. Want a little more flame to the flavor? Go with fried catfish with jalapeño tartar sauce. Not into spicy? We got you – how about that chicken cordon bleu or some crawfish etouffee? Yeah, we know, you really can't go wrong here. Cajun Yard Dog is located in the heart of the Arboretum neighborhood, so it's perfect for kids or a couple of friends who just want to chill and get their grub on. Oh and make sure to ask about their very own Mardi Gras celebrations – rumor has it that they include alligator meat in their specials!
