The original Gumbo's opened in May 1994 at 14735 Bratton Lane, Suite #310. It was located in a strip mall that, at the time, was in a rural area of North Austin.
Many of the items on the menu have kept their original names in honor of customers who helped in naming them.
After several years, in November of 1998, the restaurant was moved to Round Rock, Texas. In May of 1999, Fired Up Inc. acquired Gumbo's, then Gumbos's Loisiana Style Cafe, from Ste. Gumbeaux Inc.
In April of 2005, Shuler and Denise Page purchased the Round Rock location under a licensing agreement from St. Gumbeaux, Inc. Today, the location in Round Rock is still operating under Shuler and Denise Page with the name of Gumbo's of Round Rock. There are two other locations with two seperate owners, Gumbo's of Austin and Gumbo's of Westlake.
Shuler and Denise as well as their entire staff are committed to excellence and providing a clean, welcoming atmosphere. They continue to provide their guests with a high quality product that is consistent, prepared to order and an exceptional value.
The concept is positioned in fast-growing segment of the casual dining market and includes many features distinguishing Gumbo's from the competitors. While offering an authentic and distinctive dining experience, Gumbo's showcases some of the greatest flavor to come out of any French inspired Cajun kitchen. The full menu is innovative and diverse, offering quality food, generous portions and value pricing.
The success of Gumbo's now and in the future is determined by the hard work and dedication of the owners, managers, and entire staff. We want every "guest" that walks through our front door to feel welcomed as if they are in our own home. We firmly believe in word of mouth advertising, accomplished through learning our guests' names, providing quality service, exceptional execution, superior food, and the dedication of our staff. As employees of Gumbo's we strive to exceed guest expectations and provide them with "Lagniappe", a Cajun term meaning "a little something extra."
