Big Dinner!

Very good value. Nice staff and atmosphere. Portions huge so Brits beware over ordering! Went early (1730ish) no wait for table food or drinks but was busier when we left. No noticeable probs as in some of the other reviews.

We have been to the Fairfiled location on many occasions. For some reason it is usually crowded, which of course means very loud. I suspect it is crowed due the reasonable prices. Although I am not fond of too much noise to talk, others seem to be having a good time. The first issue was a rat. Didn't go back... More

My favorite cajun restaurnat. Great selection of foods. Fantastic gumbo. Foods are actually spicy. Several great chicken meals. A house salad that is inexpensive but a party of four could share -- a really good value. Very reasonable prices. Good service.

Where should I start. The waiter wasnt very accommodating. The food wasn't all that great. There was what seemed to be dirt in my water. But it was reasonable. Not sure if I would recommend.

Stopped in for dinner while in town. Not that I would hold it against the food, but the bar service was terrible. Once I finally got to order I found the chips and salsa were just OK, but adding the guac was a good choice. I had a burro, which was tasty but I wish I had the steak Bowie... More

Have been many times, food is really good,. He gumbo and Cajun are favorites. The place can be VERY noisy, the plus is it's a great place for kids. Service is friendly but can be slow.

We ate here 3 out of 4 days that we stayed at the LaQuinta across the parking lot. We had the fajitas, blackened catfish and blackened salmon. Everything was very good, but the 2nd time we had fajitas, the meat was not as good as the first time. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the music, but it is loud. If... More
