It is hard to find good Southern Louisiana gumbo in this part of Texas, but Dudley's has it. The roux was perfectly seasoned. Not too much okra. Shrimp was the correct doneness. It had not been sitting in the base, like other restaurants have theirs....More

There are imitators, but none can match the down home Cajun food at Dudley's. It is authentic, spicy, and always plentiful. I have never left hungry. Crawfish pies, fried shrimp, seafood gumbo, steaks -- whatever you choose will be excellent. I will say the decor...More

Dudley's is very good in Longview. They say everything is USA raised and served. It is fresh and tasty and they know what they are doing with it. Gumbo is really quite good. Pricey for some things but a bargain for others. Try it.

We have eaten here each time we come to Longview. The menu is not huge, but what Cajun items we have ordered have always been tasty and very flavorful. Seafood appears fresh and well handled. Servers are energetic and helpful. The defining difference is that...More
