Good choice for quality of food and service

Absolutely eat here while in town. Try the shrimp embrochettes or the triple grill. Waitstaff is attentive and food is great!

Man am I grateful this place is in east Texas! The crab au gratin is worth it all. But everything I've tried is so tasty. I'll fly in to Angelina County airport and take the crew car just to get my R&K fix!

Over the last several years I've attended an "Appreciation Lucheon" at Ralph & Kacoo's. It has always been superb. But this year it seemed even better! I don't know if it was the meal or the service but regardless it was great. We've eaten there several times with friends as well and they have never failed us. Always fantastic!

We tried Ralph & Kacoo's because of the Trip Advisor reviews and its closeness to our Lufkin hotel. We were not disappointed at all. The seafood was really quite good despite the distance from the nearest coast line. We sampled the tasty gumbo and the excellent nightly special consisting of blackened flounder covered in a cajun sauce with crawfish tails,... More

The food at this establishment is very good. The seasoning is well distributed and plentiful; no need for extra salt/pepper. The service was excellent. My cup never got to 1/2 empty.

By far the worst service and management in Lufkin Texas! All I can say is the management does not care about customers, and the service is the slowest around! I will never give that place a chance again I have given them way too many already, do not waste your time or money there.

Six of us dined at this restaurant from entering to leaving we had exceptional service, the steaks are in my opinion the best in Lufkin and if your in the area don't miss out on this dining experience. Colin and Shirley

This is my first trip to Lufkin, but not a stranger to cajun food. When given the chance I will always make selections based on the menu. The Ralph & Kacoo's location does a great job in providing good food and service. I had the catfish cocodrie and it was awesome. If I come back to Lufkin again, a trip... More

We enjoyed our meal very much. We shared an order of home made onion rings, and the grilled shrimp with steamed vegetables. It was all very tasty. The hot rolls melted in our mouths. We were quite full! Our server was friendly and kept our water glasses filled.
