Foodie Friday: Mardi Gras year-round at Good Times Cajun Cuisine

Post Ad – Top

Mardi Gras is officially 4 days away, which means it’s time to start celebrating or thinking about how you’ll celebrate! May we recommend you visit Good Times Cajun Cuisine in Lewisville to get into the Mardi Gras spirit? This is one of our all-time favorite Foodie Friday spots owned by one of our favorite Foodie Friday owners, Brenda Brown. And here’s why…

When we first visited Good Times Cajun Cuisine in 2014, Brenda was one of our most effervescent and inspiring owners we had met up to that point. A native of Alexandria, Louisiana, Brenda grew up cooking Cajun recipes like Red Beans & Rice, Jambalaya and Gumbo with her grandmother. After working as a nurse for 20 years, Brenda felt like the time had come to pursue her other great passion – cooking. So, in 2001, she started her own catering business, and then opened her restaurant a little over two years ago.

Since then, Brenda has been serving up authentic Cajun cuisine to Cajuns and non-Cajuns alike. She’s proud of the fact that she’s been able to create a sort of “home-away-from-home” for Louisiana natives and a place where people can be introduced to Cajun food as well. Everything she cooks is full of love and made special. And after eating her homestyle cooking, these non-Cajuns were totally converted to traditional Louisiana cuisine!

When you visit Good Times Cajun Cuisine, why not start out your Mardi Gras celebration meal with some of Brenda’s Mardi Gras Balls? They’re deep-fried boudin balls served with a remoulade sauce. If you’ve previously been a little wary of trying boudin, I’d definitely recommend you give them a try here! They’re good – I promise!

Or try out some of their Crawfish Mini Pies, which are a hearty meat pie filled with crawfish, onions and bell pepper deep fried and served with a remoulade.

My absolute favorite dish that Brenda serves is her Crawfish Etoufee which has the perfect balance of Cajun spices.

Some of her other well-known dishes include her Red Beans & Rice and her Andouille Sausage Jambalaya.

And, of course, you can’t leave Good Times Cajun Cuisine without enjoying some of their Deep-Fried Oreos or Bread Pudding. I think every meal should end with Fried Oreos and Bread Pudding, but that’s just me.

So, native Louisianian or not, find a way to get out and enjoy some Mardi Gras festivities – which definitely needs to include some incredible Cajun food from Good Times Cajun Cuisine.

In fact, if you visit Good Times Cajun Cuisine on Tuesday, they’re having a big Mardi Gras party where they’ll have live music from Leo Hull, all-you-can eat Cajun Food for just $19,95, King Cake and a costume contest held at 7:30pm!

Be sure to tell my pal, Brenda, that I sent you and wish her a happy Mardi Gras!

*Good Times Cajun Cuisine is located at 1565 West Main Stree, Suite 225, Lewisville TX 75067.
