I am in Wytheville, Virginia at least once per month, usually on Thursdays, because my stylist is there. Luckily she is married to the owner of Captain Coy’s Cajun Deli and Seafood Market, Chris Francis, a New Orleans native, and introduced me to their wonderful Thursday special, Jambalaya with andouille and smoked sausage. Truly amazing. I now order it every Thursday I am in Wytheville.
Captain Coy’s also has other daily specials as follows:
Tuesday – Red Beans and Rice
Wednesday – Chicken Stew
Thursday – Jambalaya
Friday – Shrimp Stew
Saturday – Seafood Gumbo
The deli also serves Po’ Boys and other deli sandwiches, and sells boiled shrimp and fresh seafood to go at market price. Francis also hopes to start offering dinner in the near future. As the menu states,
This is a place to come and take a trip to the Big Easy with the sounds and flavors of New Orleans! Real, authentic, made-from-scratch Cajun cuisine!
The next time you’re traveling north or south on Interstate 81 in Virginia about 70 miles north of the Virginia-Tennessee state line, make sure to save some room for lunch or takeout from Captain Coy’s.
