Gumbeaux’s Cajun Cafe


Now that fat Tuesday is behind us, you may wonder when the next chance you may get to enjoy some Cajun food.  If you are like me, I eat Cajun seafood at least once a week. With the level of spice and the variety of choices, Cajun food is certainly one of my all time favorite types of eating. If you have not made the trip to Douglasville in while( or ever),  make it a point to go downtown and stop by Gumbeaux’s Cajun Cafe.

Fun and flavor really get going on Tuesday night for shrimp night, and Thursday is also a party in your mouth during oyster night. The menu is a little long, but some classics are always waiting to please you, like the Pontchartrain or the Appaloosa . To be honest, I will order as many as three orders of various appetizers before I get my entree’.   The french quarter shrimp are divine, and the po-boys are also outstanding.

Now I will admit that I may have never met a burger that I didn’t like.  However, meeting a burger that I love happens a lot more infrequently.  Until, of course, there was Shack Shack.  This does not mean that I am breaking up with my other burger joints around town, just that I may just have a new favorite in town.  There is just something about sitting on the roof top, looking down at the rest of Buckhead, and sinking your teeth into one of these babies.

Similar to how the hamburger itself looks down at most of my favorite foods. There is just something simple and carnivorously satisfying to having a really good burger. It really makes you feel like you are on the top of the food chain and things could not get any better.
