The Lost Cajun
After my hike on the Peaks trail I headed the half mile to Main Street in Frisco. That is where I saw the Lost Cajun. Seeing the sign with the big fella in the overalls made it seem like a place that the Fatman would enjoy.
The Lost Cajun was a cool place and I heard a good story about it. The owners moved to Frisco a while back from the South and built this location. Well it must have been pretty popular because they were able to franchise it to 27 locations. I love to hear the stories of a small business doing so well.
The bad news for this original location of the Lost Cajun is that they were closing to guests a few hours after I left because of Covid restrictions. I sure do hope that they, as well as all the great small restaurants and business, get a chance to open up again real soon.
Fatman Note: (like the whole blog isn’t just a big note) If you have a chance to visit some of these small business and local restaurants in your area please do. I have found by visiting so many that there is so much culture, personality, and great people in each one. I have had some great times visiting them and I really hope they can all re-open and bring joy and food back to their communities soon.
Off my soapbox and back to the food! Since I was in a cajun inspired place my first decision was a challenge. Would I start with the gumbo or the jumbalaya? Well I decided to go with the sausage gumbo.
The menu said that it was the spiciest and it sure did have a really nice spice to it. There were large pieces of sausage which had a good kick to them. Some sliced jalapeno’s, rice and a rich roux finished off the dish.
This was a really good gumbo. After eating all the rice and sausage, I needed to use the garlic bread to soak up the rest of the roux because I couldn’t get enough.
Fish Po’ Boy
Next up for me was the fried fish Po’ Boy. This came with lettuce, tomato, and tartar sauce on toasted garlic bread. The fish was soft with a crisp breading. The spices on the breading had a little kick to it as well. Or my mouth was still feeling the remnants for the gumbo! The sandwich did get pretty messy and fell apart but that was half the fun!
The interior of the Lost Cajun is also adorned with really cool jazz and New Orleans style posters which led to a great experience. Maybe you have been to a Lost Cajun but if you want to check out the original and find yourself in Frisco make sure you stop in.
They are located on the west side of Main Street.
