People liked the food so much at the old Johnny Cace’s Seafood and Steak House that when the restaurant closed in 2015, they kept trying to see if they could get the mother-daughter owners to make food for them.
“We had people calling us at home: ‘Hey, I really want this, how can I get it?’ Chelsea Cace, granddaughter of the late Johnny Cace said. “So, we knew that there were people who wanted us to do something like this.”
Their solution to getting the food back to the people is The Cace Kitchen that serves old favorite dishes developed by the Cace family and prepared by the Cace girls. The available menu is grab and go or special-order items. The grab and go items are sold cold or frozen, with customers taking them home or back to the office to warm them up.
We now have traditional dining and some items that are grab and go. If you call ahead, lunch items can be picked up “ready to eat”. That includes shrimp gumbo, crawfish etouffee, shrimp and avocado salad, our famous croutons, cheese spread and remoulade sauce. The idea is to give our customers fresh, good meals that they don’t have to cook themselves.
“A lot of my friends have children and they don’t really cook all that much, but they also won’t want to go through a fast food drive-thru every night,“ explains Chelsea Cace.
If you have a special request, those orders are available with 24 – 48 hours-notice and include dishes such as marinated crab claws, white chocolate bread pudding, and buttermilk pie just to name a few! Order yours for Thanksgving or Christmas parties and be the talk of the town! We're located in the original Johnny Cace's location in Longview, TX.
“We’re just so grateful to our customers and the Longview community for supporting us so much and encouraging us so much,” Cathy Cace says.
