A Hixson couple has opened a J. Gumbo's restaurant on Hixson Pike.

Local franchise owners Meena Seph and husband Rajeev Bhatia say they chose Hixson for the restaurant's location after living in the community for eight years and watching it grow.

What they noticed it lacked, however, was Cajun food.

"[J. Gumbo's] is a very unique addition to the community," said Bhatia. "There are a lot of pizza places and sandwich shops. If you want to bring something to the Hixson folks, it has to be something novel."

J. Gumbo's is a Cajun-style chain of casual dining restaurants with more than 40 locations across the United States. Each authentic Louisiana dish - from jambalaya to crawfish to Voodoo chicken - comes from recipes founder Billy Fox Jr. found in his grandmother's kitchen, according to

The Hixson J. Gumbo's is located at 5123 Hixson Pike.
