It was one of those Dallas weekend days with no clouds, plently of sunshine and a hot parking lot.

The Alligator Café is a casual dining restaurant located in east Dallas. It features Cajun and Creole food prepared by chef and owner Ivan Pugh. Alligator Cafe will appeal to those looking for more distinctive New Orleans type food in a relaxed and unpretentious setting.
Alligator Café opened in 2003 in the Deep Ellum part of Dallas. It moved to its present location in 2012. The restaurant has a rectangle shape and is one main room. There is a small bar in the back and outdoor patio seating. Eating on the patio can be pleasant if the weather is nice, however, a grocery store next door slightly detracts from the dining experience. Live music is performed several nights per week.
The food was enjoyable but not exceptional. Dishes ranged from average to good, and portions were on the larger side. The Po Boys Fried Green Tomatoes sandwich was somewhat bland, though the red beans and rice dish was more flavorful. The vegetarian Cajun pasta with red pepper cream sauce tasted fresh and well-seasoned; an ample mix of vegetables easily outnumbered the large pasta squares. The spicy and tangy Voodoo sauce, which cost a bit extra, was money well spent. The Pasta Orleans with grilled chicken also was enjoyable, with copious amounts of tender and tasty chicken. For dessert, the bread pudding serving was large but tasted average, and was a bit too sweet and too soft. Table service was attentive and helpful, and for a large group of 20 people, the dishes arrived close to the same time showing good kitchen coordination. If you are looking for some New Orleans cuisine in Dallas, Alligator Café is a reasonable and economical choice. While not a dining destination, it does provide a satisfying dining experience.

I usually get out of this place for under $15. Pretty inexpensive menu items. The fried alligator is really good and I don't normally eat that. The red beans and rice are so-so but they have the best Boudin Balls I've every tried...even better than Louisiana. Their remoulade sauce is also a 9/10.
