Last week I traveled to Douglasville for a work related training. Usually on the night before heading home, I try to get out of the hotel room and get to know the city, especially if I am there for the first time. Well, a coworker that is from the town told me about several restaurants in the city that were excellent. I decided to go to Gumbeaux’s Cajun Cafe. I’m glad that I did. The food was excellent! The service was great. The staff was friendly. Even the fellow patrons were friendly.
I sat at the bar upstairs. Since it was happy hour, they were serving a free appetizer. The bartender served me Crawfish Dip over Fried Mushrooms. I had never had it before but was willing to try, especially since I love mushrooms. My first reaction..OMG..Yum!
So, after reviewing the menu and asking for recommendations, I decided to order the Crawfish Etoufee Crock and a side of turnip greens. Although I am not a spicy food lover, I must say that the food was yummy. Make sure you have a tissue handy..LOL. I am a huge shrimp lover so anything with shrimp is great, in my opinion.
I was pleasantly surprised by my visit the Gumbeaux’s Cajun Cafe. I enjoyed the experience and did not feel like I was in Douglasville at all (whatever being in Douglasville feels like). It is perfect for a date night, family outing or girls night out. If you decide to visit, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
