      i wanna know what makes the pizza "cajun"-- so intrigued.
      i was there a while back, but they weren't open yet so i had to get a sandwich from the place next door instead.

        From the website it's not so much the pizza as the decor. The owner's from Lafayette; lots of cajun decor. They're selling pizzas for 1/2 price during the superbowl.

          We went today for lunch. In short - the people that operate it are nice, the proces are fair, and the pizza is pretty good.

          1) Crust - like a cracker almost. This crust is somewhat different than most pizzas......a bit flaky. We liked it because it was on the crispy side. It is a thin crust - the pizza is not increadibly heavy

          2) Topping - the topping to crust ratio is pretty high, although some of the veggies were skimpy. Pepperoni was normal, the sausage had some flavor (fennel and other spices).

          3) Sauce - on the sweet side, but not sweet. Pizza could have used a little more sauce.

          We definitely will go back. We all ate for about $6, not counting drinks, but counting an order of cheese garlic rolls with marinara (yummy).

          Nothing cajun about the pizza.....

          1. re: rudeboy

            $6 is downright reasonable, esp. with the rolls.
            I work nearbyish (Riata/Parmer) so that is within my lunch radius.

              Oh, keep in mind that this involved ordering whole pies split between 6 people (one large, one medium). Still, though, we got full for that price. It's table service, so there's a tip involved, too.

              The food sounds a lot like the place I ate at last year in Lafayette called Pizza Village. The co-owner mentioned having his eye on opening a place in Austin. Guess it happened.
