off the hook

Off The Hook restaurant is opening in Gonzales on June 24 with drive-thru service.

Thibodaux-based Off The Hook Cajun food restaurant will open in Gonzales on June 24.

The first in the growing chain opened in 2012 in a 900-square-foot building in Thibodaux, serving fried fish and chicken wings made from recipes passed down through generations.

Off The Hook has since added locations in Houma and Houston. The Ascension Parish restaurant will be located in the former Zaxby's restaurant at 437 N. Airline Highway, with a menu featuring locally caught seafood, including Gulf shrimp, po-boys, salads, wraps and premium Angus beef burgers.

Initially, the restaurant will offer only drive-thru, delivery and take-out, but plans include to soon open the dining room. For more information, visit
