Sugar’s Cajun Cuisine & Bar offers more than food. With a live music lineup featuring jazz on Fridays and rhythm and blues on Saturdays, the family-friendly restaurant offers an entertaining environment.


“That’s what we’re about—music, good food and a good atmosphere,” restaurant manager Adrianna Blair said.


Set to hit its one-year anniversary in July, the staff at Sugar’s Cajun Cuisine & Bar has been listening to feedback from patrons on the types of events they enjoy most. Blair said they have tried everything from comedy nights to salsa nights, and jazz and R&B seem to resonate best.


“I think people really enjoy that and the bands that we have,” Blair said. “Some of them are more local, smaller bands, and some of them are really popular bands. We have a couple of really great national artists that come here. It’s been a really good experience to see how people are really responsive toward that.”


Featuring classic Cajun menu items, Blair said the most popular dishes include seafood gumbo, crawfish etoufee, and fried fish and shrimp platters. Another item that is also a best-seller is the surf-and-turf burger featuring an all-beef meat patty topped with seasoned shrimp, lettuce, tomato, onions and creamy alfredo sauce and served with fries.


A Cajun food connoisseur with a decades-long career in the concert promoting business, owner Darryl Austin wanted to bring the concept of Sugar’s to Missouri City, Blair said.


“His thing was there’s no place that does live music with the bands out here,” she said. “So, he was thinking, ‘What if I have a space that has the ambience, the music and the food all together?’”


Although Austin is the owner and books the musical talent, Blair oversees the restaurant’s day-to-day operations. Since opening, Blair said the restaurant has overcome some challenges, and she has gotten to see the business grow.


“We are hiring, [and] we’re still in our infancy stages,” she said. “That’s exciting to me that people see the growth, that the food is really good, and the service is good. We’re a new business, and not everything is going to run as smoothly as someone who’s been in business for 10 years. With that, we know the changes that we need to make, and we’re making those changes.”


The restaurant offers happy hour specials Monday through Friday from 3-7 p.m., and since opening, frozen hurricanes, frozen margaritas and beer on tap have been added to the drink menu, Blair said. Additionally, everything on the food menu is under $20 every day, she said.


“It’s a comfortable place,” she said. “It’s family-oriented. This is a community restaurant, and we want people to come in and feel comfortable. Kids are more than welcome to come to the concerts. We want this to be that place where people can just come relax.”
