Frilly's fashions a menu of fresh Gulf Coast seafood with a Cajun flair, bringing the Delta's spice to the tables and stomachs of non-Delta dwellers. Stop by for a date, double date, or date with the Seven Dwarves minus Grumpy and Picky to enjoy the relaxing environment and to sample starters such as the crispy fried alligator, butter-drenched crab cakes, and piping-hot gumbo in seafood and sausage varietals. For the main event, diners can hook a fang on a New Orleans favorite—chicken-and-andouille-sausage jambalaya in a tomato base—or the blackened-catfish St. Charles topped with crayfish and crabmeat and served over dirty rice. Traditional sandwiches such as catfish, oyster, shrimp, or crayfish po boys offer hand-held feasts, and Frilly's also features a kids' menu to keep future adults filled with digestible joy ($3.79+).
Frilly's Seafood Bayou Kitchen
A white neon marquee burns an alligator into the night air, pointing the way toward Frilly's Seafood Bayou Kitchen in Denton. For more than a decade, this dim brick eatery has been an outlet for Cajun culture and cooking, which the kitchen describes as a swamp version of Creole cuisine notable for its creamy, full-flavored sauces. The alligator on the sign is not a red herring, as you can order it fried from the menu along with frog's legs and pickles, two other fried delicacies served in papered plastic baskets with Cajun mayo or bourbon sauce.
Gulf Coast seafood is the main event and is proudly on display in the crawfish trio and the house special, blackened catfish st. charles, which is topped with crawfish and crabmeat in an herb butter sauce. Po boys arrive on a hoagie roll rather than french bread, and entrees of fresh grouper or chicken and andouille jambalaya are spooned over dirty rice and can be washed down with gallon pitchers of iced tea. Aware that Cajun meals are social happenings, the catering staff can whip up a seasonal crawfish boil if your event falls within several weeks of the creature's Mardi Gras celebration. Live local acts, including Joe Tucker, create a multisensory immersion for diners.
A laid-back, straight-from-the-bayou attitude pervades at this casual seafooder ... Cajun music adds authenticity … Delightful food does the rest.10Best Restaurants Guide
The star of the night was fried oysters. Some of the best I've ever had and I use to live on the coast! Very light batter and nicely fried.Bethany W., Yelp, 4/16/11
