Pecan Pie at AL-T's
AL-T's in Winnie TX is a long-standing local Cajun restaurant on the way to Beaumont just off I-10. The shrimp gumbo is made with a dark nutty roux and lots of shrimp. The Thibideaux crawfish ettouffee ribeye steak is perfectly medium rare and all meat. The dirty rice is full of flavor but was surprisingly not excessively salty like those of other restaurants. The fried okra in the middle of winter still tastes plump and fresh. The service is fast and attentive, and the walls are reminiscent of a Cajun hunt camp. A solid Cajun restaurant worth detouring off the interstate to investigate. They serve a pretty standard Texas pecan pie most likely made with a pre-made crust and Karo syrup.
