Cajun Tailgaters Food Truck

by Steven Doyle

Just in time for Mardi Gras.

You may have spotted a new Food Truck blazing a new trail in the Dallas area. We spotted the Cajun Tailgaters truck out and about with their first night out on the town this past weekend.  

If you have a need for a Cajun fix we were told we could find it tonight at 3418 McKinney Ave in Dallas from 5pm to 8pm. They say they will be hitting up the Fort Worth Food park in the next several weeks. The truck is owned by Ann Keady and Jason Key.  

Laissez les bons temps rouler. Literally.

    I attempted to schedule a catering event for my company with Cajun Tailgators. This ended up being one of the WORST experiences with scheduling an event that I have ever had. I contacted Cajun Tailgators over 3 weeks prior to when I would need a batch of beignet orders. They confirmed that they could do the event and agreed to wait to hear back for details. When I called a second time, they yet again confirmed the event, gave me a price, discussed times for the event, and agreed to call me back within 24 hours to confirm a location to meet to pick up the orders. They never called back, which I considered to be highly unprofessional to begin with. When I hadn’t heard from them on a location to meet, and it was already the day before my morning event, I contacted them again. This time, they acted like they had no idea what I was talking about, that she would have to look into whether or not they could even do it, and that it was just too early for her to get her workers to come out. (Even though she had already confirmed this event TWICE, and had even quoted me a price $100 more than the original quote I had received because she would have to get her workers up earlier.) She called me back at almost 7:00 pm to let me know “she wouldn’t be able to do my event after all,” which was extremely considerate of her given the fact that my event was scheduled for 6:30 am the next morning, and I was left high and dry with no food less than 12 hours before. Thank you to Dunkin Donuts for bailing us out of a mess created by Cajun Tailgator’s complete lack of professionalism.

    WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND FOR A CATERING EVENT!

    Sorry you had such a bad experience with us. We were suppose to make and serve the beignets on the golf course during the event. At the last minute, the golf course did not want the truck out there. You let me know that we would need to meet somewhere (anywhere I picked near the event) and have the beignets ALL hot and ready by 6:30 AM. To cook ALL the beignets and have them ready to deliver them all to you at the same time (instead of handing them out as we were cooking them) would add at least 2.5 more hours of prepping & cooking before the event. My staff and I would have to meet at 2:30 AM to prep the truck and drive to somewhere near the event across town to start cooking the beignets. We worked a late event the night before that ended at 12AM. We first agreed to cook on the golf course and hand out the hot fresh beignets to the customers as they came up to the truck- no problem we could have done that easily. The last minute change of plans changed that. Beignets are only really good when served hot & fresh. Sorry for your experience.
