If you have a craving for authentic Cajun food, or would like to try it, this is the place to go. Nothing fancy, hole in the wall place, with great service and food. We tried the Calamari and it was some of the best I have had. You can beat the Jambalaya.

The Cajon preparations were excellent. The crawdad salad was outstanding. The p-lace is small so there may be lines at lunch but it is worth the wait.

I was looking for a "new" restaurant to try and read the reviews about Chef Wayne's. All I can say is WOW! The food was really good. We got there and there was a line outside the door waiting for them to open. When they opened at 5:00 we all poured in and at 5:04 all the tables were filled.... More

Owner is a great cook. Has another store in Williamsburg, outside of Northampton, MA. I always recommend his restaurants to my friends and customers.
