My wife and I enjoy visiting this restaurant when we crave cagin style cooking. The peal and eat shrimp dish is awesome, salads are fresh, and service is great!

We have been going here for years. The food is simple and delicious. Shrimp in a bowl of sauce. Be sure to ask for extra bread to clean up the bowl. We always fight over what sauce to get, Cajun, peanut or the green chili Alfredo. Can't go wrong with any of them.

We have been gong here off and on for many years, both in the current location and when it was across the street on Campus Blvd. and it has always been really good food with excellent personable service. The sauces can be had in anything from a mild flavorful style to melt your face but still flavorful extra hot. I... More

Not crowded on a holiday weekend. Service was great. Salads were generous and fresh. I was able to sub out pasta for fresh veggies, which was nice but also an additional cost. Five or six different sauces are available. I'm not big on sauces or gravy, but the white wine lemon garlic sauce was just fantastic! A real winner. Our... More

Eclectic establishment on Central Avenue. Good service and interesting menu. Portions are not huge, but unless you are ravenous they will do just fine. Prices are neither expensive nor inexpensive.

A great find near the university. They have been open more than 20 years and really do Cajun food right. The alligator is fried in corn meal and tender. Crawfish tastes fresh and also tender. Try the seafood gumbo! When you're tired of Mexican or Southwestern try Louisiana Cajun!!!

First and only visit though we should have received a second chance... Parking was great, we got there right when the restaurant opened (the best part). The initial service was good, and the restaurant seemed very presentable. However, on a very warm day, the restaurant was warm and so was the salad, beer and entree. While in the bathroom, the...

We discovered this small locally owned restaurant when it opened in the mid-90s and have not been able to give up our "habit" yet. Over the years they have greatly expanded their menu to augment their original shrimp with "Cajun" sauce to include Thai, Curry, New Mexican and more, and other fish, seafood and meat, to please anyone's tastes. They... More

I went to lunch to this place with a friend and we were disappointed with the portions of meat served with each of our meals. I had the cajun chicken over angel hair pasta and my friend had the jambalaya. The amount of chicken pieces in the cajun chicken with angle hair pasta was embarrassing small and my friend's jambalaya... More
