Austin >Nubian Queen Lola Cajun
In addition to the rich, mouth-coating etoufee, shrimp po boys, and gumbo (Fridays are "All You Can Eat Gumbo" days), one of the biggest reasons to visit Lola's is Lola herself, a sweet Louisiana lady who started her restaurant with $500. A tiny space with communal seating, this is truly a kitschy, colorful institution whose Cajun food and generous owner (Lola feeds the homeless each Sunday in the cafe's backyard, free of charge) create instant fans.
The good is great all made by her so you feel the love!! Greens and Mac and cheese are amazing and Lola is loving and friendly support her cause!
So goooood! The Cajun tea is divine! Also really good catfish.

All you can eat gumbo on Fridays!! This place is a bit sketchy but totally worth it. The Cajun tea is delicious too!
The best soul/cajun food in Austin. It will make your tastebuds come to life!
Colorful and small, Nubian Queen Lola boasts great soul food with a conscience; owner Lola Stephens volunteers her time and cooking abilities to the homeless on a regular basis. [Eater 38 Member]
