Stopped in after picked up daughter at airport on way back into town. Convenient! Promptly seated by courteous staff. Several people there but not crowded for Friday eve. Got there early enough to order cocktails off of HH menu (yay). Frozen cocktails were just what we needed to cool off from 100 degree heat. Food was really tasty and good value for the quality and portions. Will definitely go back again.

Was in this area of town, and made a reservation based on reviews and we were not disappointed, everything we had was great. We had flautas and guacamole as appetizers, and delicious fried rice, and chicken tikka Marsala as our main dishes; we loved the fusion of cultural flavors. Our server was friendly and accommodating, and we enjoyed the ambience; wished we lived closer!

This is such a nifty little restaurant. Takes you back to the 50s or 60s. A wonderful even though not large menu with breakfast all day. I hate to use the word healthy because that turns a lot of people off, but it’s delicious and healthy – except for things like French toast and pancakes that need lots of butter and syrup!

About the restaurant
Down South CaJJun Eats was founded by twin brothers Jahmaal and Jermaine Dumes in the Spring of 2017. While Studying at Southwestern University in Georgetown, TX they decided to take a leap of faith. Originally from Beaumont, TX, they felt a tremendous part of their lives was missing in Austin. And that was Crawfish!!

Coming from a family of cooks, they’ve always dreamed of starting a restaurant in their home state. With the help and support of family and friends, they were able to make this dream come alive.

We take pride in our authentic style of cooking and strive to give you the full Down South CaJJun experience with great food, great people, and a great time! Bringing the great taste of Southeast Texas/Louisiana to Austin!

It is rare that you visit a restaurant that exceeds your expectations. CaJJun Eats did just that! Every item ordered was cooked to perfection and packed with flavor! The music was upbeat and put us in a vibe. The complete ambience of the restaurant made us feel at home. We loved it so, that we’ve already planned a return trip for next week (I don’t live in the Austin area). We’ve invited more family members to join us. Thank you for the spectacular service and such a supreme experience!

Loved the food. Would appreciate if the orders came with 3 tacos instead of 2. Noise level is fine but quality of some of the reggaeton was way to obscene (coming from someone that loves Hispanic urban music).

Thank you for everything! My mom was so enamored by the harp and the service. We liked to food, maybe next year if you can offer more beef options instead of chicken (we don’t like the chicken that much) that would be great! The oysters were amazing and so were the desserts. More egg options would be better too like omelettes to order.

Absolutely amazing. We went for Mother’s Day and everything was beautiful. There was live music and fresh flower bouquets being made. The food was delicious! Will definitely be back soon.
