Cajun cuisine's distinct spices stem from its attitude-laden ingredients, such as brazen pork cheek, incredulous crawfish, and sassy-fras. Give your taste buds some lip with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Cajun fare at Willie’s Bayou Grill.
Willie’s Bayou Grill serves up a toothsome selection of New Orleans standards, such as oysters, po' boys, burgers, and more. The mouthwatering Mudbug burger balances fried catfish atop a burger slathered in savory remoulade ($9.49), much as singing detectives balance murder investigations and showmanship. The tender-yet-snappy fried gator tail bayou basket is accompanied by an entourage of sassy fresh-cut fries, level-headed cole slaw and silent-but-strong hush puppies ($12.49). Willie’s assortment of bread-based dishes also includes an andouille sausage po’boy ($6.99/half serving) and a Yard Bird sandwich that matches a grilled or deep-fried chicken breast with jack cheese, onion pickles, and mayo ($8.49). The crawfish étouffée, a succulent medley of seafood and dark spicy sauce ($13.95), rests on bed of rice as clean as the couches of pearls lobsters recline on while watching Matlock.
