Gator burger

Downtown Cajun food fans will be happy to know that gator burgers are now just a short drive away. Cajun Kountry Cafe re-opened a few weeks ago in a new spot at 2931 Spruill Ave. Hours are 7 a.m.-7 p.m. and the new phone number is (843) 225-5591.

Citing a slowdown in restaurant traffic in the Fall, Chef Frisco decided to close the Remount Rd. location and consolidate his business to be more event oriented. The old restaurant shuttered in mid-December. The new spot is much smaller, but the kitchen is actually larger. He plans to expand his catering business and co-ordinate more with Sybil Stewart’s event planning business, Events by Sybil.

For now, he’s still offering a take-out lunch menu which offers a smattering of former favorites. There are only four two-tops, so larger crowds might want to call in for take-out. When the weather warms up, he plans on utilizing the space behind the restaurants with picnic tables. Oyster roasts and a fish fry are in the works.

New to the menu is a grits laden breakfast selection. That’s available 7 a.m.-11 a.m.

You can see the new menu here. Catering offerings are much more extensive and it’s best to call and see what he has going on.
