Pappadeaux Banquet Facility
A Texas family started this terrific seafood house with a touch of Louisiana flavor. The Pappas family has hit another homerun with this uptown Pappadeax's Seafood Kitchen. This seafood kitchen is rustic and shabby chic. Bricked walls and metal garage door room dividers make it an interesting architectural site. There is plenty of room for large parties. The fried crab finger dinner is incredible. Other excellent fresh seafood favorites include crabs, salmon, trout, catfish and halibut. The baked potatoes here are among the best in town. Desserts are delicious finales and are plentiful enough for two.
The batter falls off of the fried shrimp. The boiled shrimp are completely unseasoned and frequently undergooked. There is more to Cajun food than pepper. I'm from New Orleans and this is a poor substitute. The one on Hwy 67 in Duncanville is incredibly LOUD regardless of where you sit and they have police on duty in the parking lot to protect the patrons! Also, they need to invest in an oven that cooks French bread - not crispy rolls. You can't fake it.
I look forward to eating here at least once a year when we fly out of Dallas for family vacations. Wish they would open in Tulsa, OK.
Great food, atmosphere, everything! I tried calamari for the first time at Pappadeaux's and loved it! Stuffed crab is my favorite.
Only complaint I have is I wish they sold Pappadeaux's t-shirts, etc!
I really enjoyed Pappadeaux's when I was in College in Houston. I guess I was at the bar too long to realize how long the wait actually was. I was disappointed that we waited almost two hours to be seated. There were large parties that came well after us that were seated before us. I guess you have to have 7 or more people to get faster service on the weekends. That was the message that we were told by the wait staff.
The food was definetly worth the wait. The drinks were good as well. I would recommend the appetizer Blackened Foundeaux and for dinner the Blackened Opelusus (I think I spelled that wrong). I was too stuffed for dessert. Be prepared to sit and wait; or have a really large party if you're really hungry. Maybe they should have call ahead seating.
THE FOOD WAS REALLY GOOD, I WAS NEVER ALL THAT BIG ON SEA FOOD BUT I LOVED PAPPA DEAUX, WE ORDERD TAKE OUT AND LIKE WITH ALMOST EVERY PLACE I AM SURE IT TASTE ALOT BETTER IF U EAT INSIDE. THE FOODS A LITTLE PRICEY BUT HEY THAT'S THE PRICE YOU PAY TO HAVE GOOD SEA FOOD! I WOULD DEF GO BACK AND TRY SOME DIFFERENT THINGS
I have visited many seafood and steak restaurants around the country. I have had just about as good a steak as one can ask for anywhere. When I ordered the Steak and Lobster I was a bit surprised. I expected Pappadeaux to have a great lobster just based on the reputation the preceded my visit, but the steak was truly a cut above the rest. Marinated to perfection and cooked exactly to order I was totally astonished at the quality offered in this seafood place, Definitely a cut above the rest on restaurant row in Dallas.
Pappadeaux is located just past �restaurant row� at 10428 Lombardy Lane. Take the Walnut Hill Lane exit and then go a few blocks to Lombardy Lane and turn left. Follow the curved road nearly to the end and there is a huge sign for all to see. This restaurant is not your ordinary seafood place. The menu contains crab, lobster, shrimp, and calamari, but also offers exotic foods such as alligator and frog legs. One of the most interesting dishes is alligator tail. This comes to the table lightly breaded and is very tender and juicy. The chef chooses the best part of the tail and works wonders with it. This dish must be tasted to be believed; and no, it doesn't taste like chicken! Cajun food is big at this restaurant, offering crawfish etouffee, and a great seafood gumbo. Swordfish is blackened and spicy, so it creates an adventurous evening for those who visit. The baked potatoes are huge and stuffed to capacity with all the trimmings. Salads come in several varieties and are almost large enough to be the complete meal. There is a long bar in the center of the large room that is cozy despite its location, and the drinks are marvelous and reasonably priced. There are also private dining rooms available for large groups. The dress code is casual and the pricing runs from around $10.00 to $25.00 for a complete meal.
