There aren't many Cajun eateries in Denver, and the few that do pop up often skew Asian, thanks to the Vietnamese immigrant population that settled in Louisiana and then migrated north. But this Littleton spot is all Southern, and despite the casual vibe, owner Greg Jones doesn't take any shortcuts with the food: The gumbo simmers for eight hours before being served up to customers. And there are plenty of Bayou classics on offer: Choose from one of four different gumbos (including a veggie version), fried alligator nuggets and boudin sausage bites, hush puppies and authentic sweet tea (just Lipton and simple syrup). The excellent jambalaya often sells out, so go early.
