The McGuinness family - Charles, Billy, Chris "Dodie" and Casey - opened Dodie's in November 1989. All of us, being from "The Big Easy," feel that Dodie's is a blend of Cajun and New Orleans cuisine. Our recipes come from Aunt Lou-Lou, Aunt Daisy, Aunt Susan and of course Mireille Lanusse McGuinness. Everything is prepared by order, so we know you will enjoy our family's cooking.
This is the original location opened in 1989 at the corner of Lowest Greenville and Richmond Ave.(across from Whole Foods Market). This Dodie's was opened with the intent on bringing authentic New Orleansfood the the DFW metroplex. Well 16 years later, were are still going strong and the area has really exploded with new businesses as well as residential developments. Charley and Chris (Dodie) McGuinness are still at work hanging out and making sure your Dodie's experience is a good one. (Charley will be the one at the bar with a beer in hand) If you are a regular than you'll notice our staff has stayed virtually the same since the beginning. Amber, Lisa, Tracy, Eddie, Beto, Mauricio, and more have been with us for about 13 years or more. Our hours of operation are 11am - 10pm daily. We do not accept reservations, but would appreciate the heads up on a bigger group coming in. Please call us is there is anything we can do for you.
Thanks for making Dodie's a success.
