John Rousos's idea of New Orleans cooking is to add more salt and hot pepper to standard recipes for Creole cuisine. It has little resemblance to the real N.O. food, which I've sampled probably 100 times in the last 35 years. We pass by the...More

Food overall is one of the best places in Madison if your right by the stadium or on the northside. Service usually sucks, the person working is not very nice, but I could usually forgive because the food is worth it.

Authentic Cajun fare available locally. Excellent stuff all over the menu - I love the various Po Boy sandwiches and Thursday's special, "cajun cream." Folks who like the spicy will love the jambalaya. Creole for real. Cornbread. Real deal stuff.

This our favorite restaurant in Madison. It's not fancy and there aren't alot of tables to sit down and eat. It's just simply the best cajun food outside of New Orleans. The flavor is so good that even though you are sweating you'll want more....More
