If you're looking for real, authentic Cajun/Creole food in Memphis at a reasonable price, look no further than Mardi Gras Memphis. The owners are from southwest Louisiana and really know how to cook. The service is excellent. The menu is simple and not overwhelming with...More

Small and intimate setting. Service was awesome. Location wasn't appealing. I had Shrimp and Grits and it was kind of lackluster. I expected more from it. Got a free sample of a crawfish corn chowder and it was great! I'd go again for that chowder!

Had dinner there last night with my son. He had eaten there before and recommended it. I was so glad he did. The food was great. My only problem is I live over two hours away.

This was genuine comfort food. We had the catfish po-boy with dirty rice. Couldn't have been better. The beans and rice were a huge portion and just what the doctor ordered, more than I could eat. Oh so good!

The shrimp poboy was amazing! It's HUGE! Some of the best Cajun food I have had inside or outside of Louisiana. My wife had the mini sampler and it was marvelous. We will be returning to try the whole menu.
