Longview is home to LeTourneau University and has become a driving force in culture, community events and entertainment. As a result, the city’s dining scene is an eclectic fusion of local tradition and international flavor. These five must-try restaurants define Longview’s culinary culture, from laid-back bistros and cafes to innovative food served in luxury settings.



Cajun restaurant 

Dudley's Cafe has been open in Longview since 1992. It all started when the owner was working for John Deere and he decided to sell boiled crawfish on the weekends, which was a hit! Then he began getting requests for other Cajun dishes and thus, the idea for his cafe was born. This cafe has an almost perfect rating on Google and is known as the best seafood in town! We highly recommend starting out with the ham and sausage jamalaya, then moving onto the blackened combo. Finish your meal off with their bread pudding with whiskey sauce and you will leave fully satisfied!

Make sure to start your meal off with one of their delicious appetizers, such as the Texas Red Chili or the Rattlesnake bites then move on to your entree. We recommend the Road Kill or the Fort Worth Ribeye! Texas Roadhouse also serves a variety of other dishes, such as salads, burgers, and fish!
