The chefs at Papa Lew’s Restaurant sate Southern-style cravings with a menu of traditional soul food and Cajun delicacies. The restaurant’s tantalizing Soul Delicious menu offers ample opportunities for dining duos to trade alligator-wrestling tips over kitchen-fresh bayou favorites including plates of oxtails or whole farm-raised catfish with a choice of two sides, including black-eyed peas, collard greens, and bowls of mac ‘n’ cheese good enough to inspire childhood flashbacks in a single bite. The appropriately monikered KC Swagger menu delivers palate-kicking tasties including a Cajun grilled catfish fillet teamed with shrimp étouffée and white rice, finished off by a choice of one side and oven-warm house-made cornbread. Genaro’s spicy dipped hot wings give capsaicin-toughened mouths a run for their money with four Southern-fried wings fired up and paired with two sides and cornbread or a roll to absorb the roiling mouth warmth.
