Zydeco’s Cajun and Creole Restaurant: Authentic Southern Louisiana Hospitality in a Midwestern Eatery

Zydeco’s is a restaurant and a half, located in beautiful Mooresville, just a short drive from Monrovia in Central Indiana, outside of Indianapolis. Billing themselves as “The world-famous Cajun restaurant in beautiful downtown Mooresville, Indiana” turns out not to be an enormous stretch of the imagination. Their ivy-covered red-brick building is charming and inviting and their Cajun and Creole menu simply can’t be beat, at least not in the depths of the Midwest.

The exciting, spicy fare from South Louisiana is authentic and classic at Zydeco’s Restaurant. You’ve got your traditional, succulent red beans and rice, frog legs, crawfish, oysters, etouffee, shrimp and, of course, your mandatory jambalaya. It’s over-the-top delicious, enticing food that’s all served up with the unmistakable flair of a Mardi Gras gala.

Zydeco’s Cajun and Creole Restaurant offers a first-class Southern Louisiana menu calculated to make believers out of each and every diner. Try the daily specials at Zydeco’s and even if you’re from the deep South, you’ll realize you don’t have to leave the Midwest to get the real thing. Zydeco’s daily specials at this particular writing were Chicken and Anouille Gumbo, an sumptuous Smoked Pork Loin and Potato Salad dish, Oysters on the Half Shell and down-home, stompin’ Barbecue Shrimp. Specials at Zydeco’s Restaurant change not only with the day but with the season, as do many items on the menu, to assure freshness and quality for their valued customers.

Superlative choices from the intriguing Zydeco’s menu might include the Jolie Blond Pasta, marinated Crawfish tails marinated in garlic butter with diced Tasso and Alfredo sauce; the Cochon Piquant Grille, spicy smoked pork loin medallions with a classic Etoufee sauce, served with the house signature potato salade; the Cajun Sampler Platter, a must for at least one member of your party; or Chicken Ya Ya, a savory and smoky chicken dish served with white rice and real Jambalaya. You can get a blackend tenderloin filet, a fried catfish dinner, a gorgeous shrimp remoulade salade or just plain good old gumbo too.

During your Zydeco’s experience, sidle over to the Voodoo Oyster Bar and check out their “CajunCam.” You can say hey to the family live on the Web while you’re downing oysters and chasing them with a Hurricane or some Louisiana beer. On the first Sunday of every month, Zydeco’s Restaurant goes all out to create an unforgettable “Jazz Brunch,” just for music and food-lovers like you.
