Bite Your Tongue Opening Monday

You’ve probably been watching the construction of Cajun Restaurant, Bite Your Tongue as they are located right along the Light Rail line at the bottom of Post South End by the Bland Station. We are excited to learn they will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner starting this Monday!

Bite Your Tongue is family owned and operated by Lucius and Martine Johnson and they have a great story of how they evacuated New Orleans on the eve of Katrina to Charlotte and have now made Charlotte their home. Here is the story they share on their website…

“We are from New Orleans, Louisiana. Our family evacuated to North Carolina the day before hurricane Katrina. Following the breach in the levees, we decided to make Charlotte our home. In New Orleans, we owned “Bite Your Tongue” Take Out and Catering. We opened our new business in 2002. We began offering Charlotte a taste of N’awlins cuisine in June of 2007. We are located on Randolph Road in a medical building. We were there for four years and now we are in the third generation of the Bite Your Tongue experience. As of July 2012, we are located in the South End area of Charlotte. We are minutes from uptown and we are located on the  light rail at the Bland street station. The address is 222 East Bland Street @ South Blvd. the cross street is Rensselaer Avenue. We look forward to serving our existing customers and meeting the new ones. We are so excited to offer a larger menu and a sit down restaurant. We invite you all to take a look at our catering services and our huge gourmet to go selections. and the “New Orleans Strango!” be on the lookot for our cookbook as well! We thank the people of North Carolina for receiving our family and the food so well.”


Welcome to South End and we look forward to your wondeful N’awlins cuisine!

  1. We got to eat there for dinner last night. Delicious authentic Naw’leans food!
    They currenlty have a ‘Soft Opening’ menu so not everything is available.
    Tender-tongues better keep to the ‘Mild’ version of their dishes.
