In Search of Andouille in Dallas!

  • p

Any ideas on a good source of Andouille here in Dallas.

I tried out Central Market and it's pretty so so... I figure with us being so close to Louisiana there's got to be some dynomite Andouille somewhere nearby, I just haven't found it yet.

Looking forward to hearing some responses....

Thanks!

  1. good luck I havnet seen the real deal around here.

    1. not to hijack the thread but along the same lines...where can i find good boudin?

      1. Many years ago, before CM and WF, Kuby's was one of the few places that carried Andouille sausage. I don't know if they still carry it.

        1. Good luck! I've been looking for 7 yrs. I still swing by The Best Stop in Scott LA and load up and bring it home. I'm not impressed with CM's sausage.
          Now there IS a new place in Keller on S. Main that offers Andouille and boudin but I think the label says it's from Oklahoma so take it for what it's worth

          1. I haven't tried them, but has anyone tried Bayou Market in Lewisville - http://www.thebayoumarket.com/

            For years, about this time (Christmas) they start TV advertising their turducken and other Cajun specialties. They have both andouille and boudin listed on their deli meats section.

              Went here for lunch today. Ok shrimp po-boy (there's garlic in the batter), but the roast beef po-boy was nothing more than an unseasoned roast beef sandwich - dry with no gravy to help it along.

              But, as to the sausage and meats, good bad or indifferent - they make their own boudin, and also carry the Savoie brand (SW La) of Pickled Pork, Boudin, Andouille and Tasso. Also - which I'm VERY excited about: They carry Camillia beans - kidneys, pintos, large lima (butter beans) and great Northern.
