I was in Sacramento last week with a group of work associates and we decided to go to Old Sacramento to have dinner before departing town. We first tried Joe's Crab house which had a 45 minute wait, so we walked around the area until we located the Hot and Spicy Cafe New Orleans. It looks decent from the outside, but once you enter it seems a bit seedy. Once seated I noticed the vinyl tablecloth and menu were a bit greasy. The waiter who took our order looked as if he had not slept or bathed in a few days. Anyway, we decided to stay , placed our orders and then proceeded to wait and wait and wait. Finally after about 40 minutes and some prodding of the waiter, we got our meals. This is where things got dicey. I personally thought the meal was below average, somewhat on par with prison food. However my associate was not as generous. He did not like the fact that his Jambalaya was watery and refused to pay. The waiter was very apologetic, but there was not much he could do. Anyway, we left hoping that we would not get sick on the flight back. That is how the meal felt in my stomach afterwards. I ended up not getting sick, but there is no way I would ever recommend this restaurant to anyone traveling to Sacramento.
