Went w my husband and were very pleasantly surprised. A down home Louisiana diner with all you'd expect, only better! Service very friendly and FAST! They bring a wooden board with samples of signature dishes, all excellent. Crawfish étouffée, various gumbos, lobster bisque, etc. Incredible catfish, lightly floured and delicate. What a treat! Good beer selection, and the beignets were better than any we've tasted. Even in NOLA! Nice people, nice setting, incredible food! Go there! Going back this weekend with friends from Louisiana!

Last year we discovered the Lost Cajun in Frico, and I suggested to the owner that he might consider Breckenridge, Vail, Avon, or Edwards.

Today there is an honest 'Nawlins restaurant (The Lost Cajun) in Frisco, Breckenridge, and Edwards. In our view, the Frisco Lost Cajun is just too small, and the owner should lease a larger property.

The Breckenridge Lost Cajun is nearly a year old, but difficult to find because it is on the lower lever of an older mall, whose upper tenants have left or moved. Now if one is approaching from the Blue River path, your nose will lead you to the Lost Cajun.

The third location is in Edwards, directly across the street from the Gore Range Brewery. The Edwards location seems to be doing great business, and requires outdoor seating.

We like the Edwards location. It almost as if one is in Mulates in 'Nawlins. All tables are presented with a complimentary sample of seven 'Nawlins dishes. We both choose the Crayfish Etouffee! I keep telling the owner that Crayfish Etouffee! Is spelled with a Y and not a W.

The Edwards location looks like a 'Nawlins restaurant, and almost sounds 'Nawlins. Gotta add a lot more Zydeco to the music, and gotta add three times the Mud Bugs to the Crayfish Etouffee!

The owner is doing all the serving, busing, and instructing the young “cook.”

We guess the owner loses ten pounds a day; and we hope that The Lost Cajun becomes a modern day gold mine.

The fare is appropriate for the tariff.

Grew up in 'Nawlins & this was very authentic! The seafood gumbo is better than the chicken & sausage gumbo. Must have Beignets!!!!! Owner works the room greeting all customers & gives Mardi Gras beads to all the kids. Be sure to read the back of the menu to learn how he got lost & the Cajun glossary. If you haven't eaten there before be sure to ask for a complimentary sampler paddleboard so you can taste about 6-7 of the entrees before you order.

We were greeted at the door and given samples of their gumbo as soon as we sat down. The owner was extremely friendly. We had everything from a shrimp PO Boy to fried oysters. It was all great.

Stopped by on their 'all you can eat' fish night, and was expecting some pretty bland, frozen stuff, but the fish was quite tasty. Service was good, and the gumbo sampler was a treat, and they were all tasty as well. Good spot for some cajun flavor.
