This restaurant has a couple of things going for: its name, and some framed photos of famed Cajun chef Justin Wilson. That's where the positives end. The gumbo, although it appeared to be based on a roux, was very greasy, and the sausage was insipid. The liquid for the crawfish gumbo appeared to have been made from Campbell's tomato soup,...

The pork tenderloin sandwich with chips is wonderful!!! We visited 2 times in a week for this. The fish po-boy is also great, The chips are freshly made and so delicious.

We absolutely enjoyed The Big Easy Grill! Happy, friendly employee's and the closest to New Orleans Cuisine that we have found. My Husband is from new Orleans and is delighted at the prospect of enjoying some authentic cuisine from home. (Spices are toned down from original Cajun cooking). The Muffalatta is excellent!

Not on the menu, but I'm telling you the Dirty Rice is the BEST! Sausage and shrimp with just the perfect spice. Dirty Jambalaya is on the menu, it is good too. We love the Crawfish Etoufee, the Catfish Poorboy, ....Just wonderful food. This location is larger and nicer, and they have room for larger groups.

Loved everything we had. I had the shrimp gumbo & a side of okra both were super good. We also got the bread pudding to share & it was amazing as well. The price for everything was pretty great too! I will definitely be back!

Seems that food at both locations is still pretty good but new location service needs to be brought up 2 par!

But I'll have to say this "Tenderloin" is one at the top. Best I know in Springfield! Ideal meal, Tenderloin Sandwich and a cup of Gumbo! Yum yum.. I usually get Jambalaya. I trade off now. Making me hungry thinking about it.

We saw this restaurant reviewed on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try. Food was awesome, very authentic and wonderful flavors. Service was a little slow but our server apologized that it was his mistake. Tried the shrimp po'-boy and jambalaya both were good. I would definitely come back for this food!
