“didn't make it past the front door”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

This place was highly recommended to us by friends, but we didn't even go past the front door. It looks like a dirty cafeteria inside. The hostess told us there would be a 20 minute wait even though only a handful of tables had people at them. She seemed more concerned with talking to an incomplete party about sorority life rather than acknowledging us. The menu is also very limited. We ended up at another restaurant down the street and were very pleased.

“Eat the hungry cajun. You're welcome. ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

The food was amazing and reasonably priced. The kids had so much fun eating and coloring on the paper covered table. Very dark inside. Windows are screened off. All the food was amazing.

“Being from Louisiana I'm kinda picky when it comes to cajun food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

So this place wasn't bad. You've got a few options as far as the menu goes, you've got the crazy cajun which is a serving of mixed seafood, sausage, corn, and new potatoes. Then you've got the standard gumbos, Jambalaya, and other assorted rice dishes but the main attraction is the crazy cajun. They bring it out and dump it on the table fresh from the boiling pot. It's not bad but it's not real spicy which is good I suppose since most folks in Texas don't handle spice real well. The drinks are insanely pricey. 2.50 for soda, 3 bucks for TEA and then 2.75 for an 8 oz draft beer. I was there with a group of five and the bill came out to $100.25 not too bad all things considered but for the amount they charged each of us I was expecting more. I dunno if I'd eat there again given other choices but if someone really wanted to go I probably would.

“Crawfish a Little Plain”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

Bought a few pounds and they cooked it hot and fresh. Smelled wonderful but was really lacking the little kick that comes from the spices. Next time we will have a meal there and see how the rest of the menu is.

“Flavorful, but small portions”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014 via mobile

The gumbo, red beans and rice, etc. are meant to be ordered as sides, I think, to accompany the shrimp boil. We chose the seafood combo and red beans and rice for our meals and found the portions to be small. The food was delicious, but would prefer the option to order a dinner portion for a higher price. Real bowls and flatware would be nice rather than the cheap styrofoam plates and plastic flatware. The food was very good though, and we still had room to stop for ice cream.
