I am revealing an addiction right now.  I mean a serious addiction.  Oyster po boys, beignets, chicory coffee, alligator, etouffee, dirty rice, and crawfish….are you feelin’ me?  I am talking about a divine cuisine that has literally called there building blocks of onions, celery and bell peppers the “Holy Trinity”.  I am talking about Cajun food y’all.  Deep, soulful and a spice that will kick you in your pants!

If it’s good and done right, I cannot get enough!!  It is a serious addiction that I have to feed.  You know when some good eats just make you smile and laugh?  That is what I am guaranteed every time I walk into Crawdaddy’s in SLO.  The best part, the unassuming exterior will take you by surprise as soon as you walk through the door.  It may look simple from outside, but as soon as you walk inside you are transported to Louisiana…cool wood picnic tables with ready rolls of paper standing guard to be rolled out for the delicious culinary mess that will ensue as soon as your order is brought to your table.  Check it out!
