A new restaurant has opened in the former Pizza Hut space at 8977 W. Central, which should excite many people. It’s called T’Geaux Cajun who as the name suggests, serves Cajun food which is a rarity on the west side of town. Let’s check it out.

T’Geuax Cajun is a fast casual concept that allows customers to select dishes in a setup that is similar to places like Panda Express or other quick-service Chinese restaurants.

On our visit, all the food sat in Dutch ovens. We were able to select a 1, 2 or 3-entree meal that came with our choice of white rice, red beans and rice or dirty rice. A 1-entree meal was $6.90, 2 entrees was $9.90 and three entrees was $12.90.

While there was no menu available at the time of my visit, their Facebook page had pictures of all the dishes they had on hand. They had such dishes as boudin balls, chicken étouffée, shrimp and squash, chicken and green beans, buttered beef and vegetables, shrimp étouffée, catfish chunks, jambalaya and chicken creole.

We ended up going with a 1, 2, and 3 entree meal with the buttered beef, chicken creole, jambalaya, and chicken étouffée. The 2 and 3 entree meals came with a cornbread muffin.

Everybody was pleased with their meals. To start things off, the dirty rice was fantastic and loved by everyone. Of all the dishes we ordered, the chicken creole was probably the favorite. Having it poured over the dirty rice was a true delight; the perfect comfort food was a cold evening. It offered just the right bit of heat that everyone, including the kids, could handle. The catfish junks and jambalaya were also delicious options that were yummy.

Cajun food is one of those dishes in town that Wichita doesn’t have much of, yet so many people complain about once a new Cajun place opens. I guess there’s a high standard for Cajun food in town that may be unattainable to some. I can’t speak to whether T’Geaux Cajun will meet your standards. What I can say though is we certainly enjoyed our food for what it was. It’s not going to beat the homecooked stuff. But if you’re looking for quick, affordable, and convenient, T’Geaux Cajun should be right up your alley.

Happy Dining,
Eddy

  1. I have not eaten there yet, so I will reserve judgment until I do. But your statement that most Cajun restaurants in the area come under hard criticism is probably due to our proximitry to New Orleans and really… most Creole or Cajun restaurants are simply not up to the task. You can walk into a seafood shop in New Orleans and walk out with a gumbo or crawfish pie that will rock your world. I’ve never figured out why New Orleans doesn’t translate out of town…probably product.

  2. Great review Eddy and loved seeing photos of the restaurant set up and food. Well done.

    I’m ready for both the chicken and shrimp étouffée and boudin balls.

    Thank you for doing a writeup. I’ve been wondering about that place.
