“Come pass a good time!”
This is Zydeco's, a little restaurant in beautiful downtown Mooresville, Indiana. For over a decade, we have specialized in the cuisine of south Louisiana. Perhaps you have seen us on The Food Network or other tv programs like CNN or Fox News. Or maybe this is the first time you have heard of us, just dropped in and are asking yourself what this is all about. Well, we recreate for you the food my Louisiana family made and continue to make. As a young man growing up in and around New Orleans and Lafayette, Louisiana, I can bring to you the nuance and complexity of true Louisiana cuisine, the food that other so-called "Cajun" restaurants just can't capture. We stuff our own Andouille sausage, stir gallons of roux, cook our own crawfish, chop the vegetables, soak the red beans, smoke our own Tasso, blend our own seasoning, crush the garlic, cube the alligator tail and stay away from processed foods and too much cayenne or salt. We stay true to the original recipes yet still have fun bringing the lesser known Louisiana classics to you. As we say here at Zydeco's, "Bienvenue, Welcome." Please look around, download our menu and see who we are. Come on in and "Pass a Good Time" with us. Featured on Diners, Drive-ins & Dives.
Oh man was this ever "The Bomb" for Cajun food! The staff/owner were awesome as well..
We arrived and told the hostess that we'd seen the place on TV..Her response was "Oh on Cops?"....we nervously laughed and said 'No....on Triple D."
The appetizers were awesome, I don't see them on the current menu page but it was a sausage boudan(?) type of item....I had the Jambalaya which is the best I've ever had (ya I'm from Iowa so what do I know...I KNOW it was great! that's what I know) and the Bread Pudding w/rum sauce was a sweet way to end the meal.
When we were leaving I believe it was the owner (or the head cook) came over to ask us how this were and we said 'Fantastic...seen you guys on TV and figured we had to make it in when we were in the area." His reply was....."Oh you seen us on COPS?"......Again.....we stated "No, on TripleD"
Either we missed something or they were just funning with us?? Either way the food was fantastic!
Very friendly and accommodating service. Oysters on the half shell were good and fresh. Red beans and rice was a bit dry and not very tasty. The town was really cute. They had New Orleans beers and the overall beer selection was pretty big. The service was really the selling point.
