Ralph & Kacoo's has delicious food and the price is affordable. Their dinner lunches are very tasty and have good prices and a variety of meals are offered.

We've been here twice and both times we were disappointed. The food was over priced and bland, and some was just not appetizing at all. I was given something like cold white gravy with 1 cold shrimp on top, gross. The gumbo tasted like packet brown gravy with dehydrated bits of maybe celery floating in it.

Visited with a peer on business the other day. The service was very good and the food was great. Their lunch menu is really hard to beat for the variety and value received. I have never had anything here that was bad.

It's always good. There's a wide variety of stuff to eat and it's yummy. It's not cheap and it's always crowded, so FYI. But you will enjoy it and it's a real treat!

This place has great Cajun food and a really good happy hour pricing. I have been here 5 times I travelled to Lufkin and have never been disappointed.

I recently had dinner there and had the Crawfish Ettouffe. The dish was very good and flavorful and the service was just as good. I really liked the hush puppies, too.

Stopped here for lunch on recommendation from locals. Staff friendly and helpful. Food was average. Chicken Kjun bleu- Ok flavor. Over seasoned and way too much cream sauce. Fried okra- tasted like frozen okra out of a bag Green beans- tasted like out of a can. Braised potatoes- too greasy Fried seafood- under seasoned

We tried this on a Sunday lunch....all had the Crawfish Special for $9.99. We were amazed at the quality and quantity for that price. Very good flavor, great atmosphere...dinner prices seemed quite a bit higher but if we lived here we'd be heavy regulars for lunch !

Two words: salt and butter The salmon dish was almost good except for the salty crust and the buttery sauce. The redfish dish would have been acceptable if not for the buttery sauce. Remember to take your Lipitor after dining here. On a good note, our server was nice and friendly.
