This outstanding Cajun restaurant has been in Madison for decades. I have visited many times but not often enough. I normally get the Jambalaya or the seafood file gumbo or the crawfish Etouffee ~ always excellent. Yesterday I got the Mardi Gras combo with cornbread. The combo is Jambalaya, Red beans and rice, and shrimp Creole. It was a homerun. The restaurant's slogan is "Eat Mo' Bettah!" And you will. It is a perennial "Best of Madison" winner. Laissez les bons temps rouler!

Small portions for trying to represent New Orleans. Customer Service was lacking (kind of threw down our order and did not want to answer questions). Red beans and rice was tasty and Shrimp Etoufee was super spicy but was also delicious. The french bread was worth the trip.

Close but no cigar. Everything on the menu was perfect. Having been to New Orleans on business trips I had certain expectations. I took a friend to New Orleans Take Out based on it's reputation and food type. I had a po boy and the bread was stale. Nuf said. My guest had the special of the day and it was bland, he added something from a bottle labeled "Hot Sauce", it was also mild. On the positive side the help was friendly and service was prompt. Was told that they have a larger shop on the other side of town and there is seating. I just can't imagine coming back.
