Broussard, whose ancestry in Acadiana is from France. 


"If I'm not Cajun, who is?! 
Prior to opening my first T-Coon's restaurant in 1993, I had no restaurant experience at all, but I grew up in the kitchen. After all, there were nine of us in the family, and both my parents were excellent cooks.

Even though I'm a Cajun, you will notice that the word “Cajun” is not used in any of our advertising. That's because we see the word misused throughout the country. I have chosen the term Zydeco instead as it better represents the flavor of T-Coon's. Zydeco implies a mix of the Creole and Cajun influences that are exclusive to this area of Southern Louisiana. Travel just a   few miles from Acadiana in any direction and you quickly lose the true Zydeco influence.

I consider cooking an art. Just as you can’t tell someone how to paint a painting, I've found that you can't tell someone how to brown a gravy or how much roux to put in a gumbo or how much tomato paste to use in a courtboullion. You need to have a mental "taste" for the dish before you can cook it. It has to be preconceived in your mind. Over the years, this has been made obvious to me as I’ve had to train my cooks. One of the reasons I developed the seasoning mix was to help my cooks keep the flavor consistent."  - David

T-Coon's Restaurant was started by me, David Billeaud.  As a 6th generation Billeaud from Broussard (whose French ancestors came here to Acadiana from France) if I'm not Cajun, who is? Prior to opening my first T-Coon's restaurant in 1993, I had no restaurant experience at all, but I grew up surrounded by cooking: after all, there were 9 of us in the family. Both my parents were excellent cooks.

Welcome to Our Kitchen!


Founder and Head of the Kitchen, David Billeaud, is a sixth generation Billeaud from Broussard, LA, whose Acadian family is of French ancestry, all the way from France straight to Cajun Country. 

"If I am not a Cajun, who is?! Prior to opening my first location in 1993, I had no restaurant experience at all. I grew up cooking in the kitchen with my parents who were excellent cooks, and six siblings. 

Even though I am a Cajun, you will notice that the word "Cajun" is not used in any of our advertising. This is because we see the word being misused all around the country. I have chosen the term "Zydeco" instead as it better represents the flavor of T-Coon's. Zydeco implies a mix of the Creole and Cajun influences that are exclusive to the Acadiana area in Southern Louisiana. Travel just a few miles from Acadiana in any direction and you will quickly lose the true Zydeco influence. 

I consider cooking an art. Just as you cannot tell a person how to paint a painting, I have found that you cannot tell someone how to brown a gravy, how much roux goes in a gumbo, or how much tomato paste to mix in a courtboullion. You need to have a mental "taste" for the dish before you can cook it. The recipe has to be preconceived in your mind. Over the years, this has been made obvious to me as I was taught this way and have had to teach my cooks in this way. One of the reasons I developed the seasoning mix, "The Stuff," is to help my cooks keep the taste consistent across the recipes."
