Mudbugs Cajun Café, 20 W Main St., was recently recognized by Fox59’s Clean Dining Approval.

“We haven’t had a health code violation in over eight years, so they featured us on their news cast a few weeks back,” said Roy LeBlanc, owner of Mudbugs. “There are very few restaurants that get that award. We make sure everybody knows the rules and follow the rules and that’s just how you are.”

LeBlanc hung the framed certificate in the restaurant.

In addition to the Fox59 award, LeBlanc discovered through a customer that Mudbugs was listed on as a restaurant in Indiana to visit.

“They have a bucket list of restaurants you have to try before you die, and we got put on the list and I didn’t know that and one of my customers told me we got put on the list and we’ve had quite a bit of business over the last couple of weeks because people didn’t know about us,” LeBlanc said. “We cook everything in house, all of our recipes are very authentic and true to Cajun cuisine. If you’re not from Louisiana you don’t know what it’s supposed to be like, but if you go to south Louisiana where I’m from you wouldn’t recognize most of the Cajun food you get in and around Indianapolis.”

The site listed 13 restaurants, including Bru Burger Bar and St. Elmo’s in Indianapolis.

LeBlanc said that other than achieving awards and recognitions, Mudbugs enjoys helping out the community.

“We actively contribute and donate to a lot of the local causes and high schools and various charities since we’ve opened up,” he said. “We do some fundraisers with various charities where we give them a percentage of our sales.”
