R & K is an average dining experience, but the patio is a great place to meet with friends for a drink and live music. Local artists play in an intimate setting.

This is a great place for family, a group of friends, business dinners, or a date night. The outside patio has a fun atmosphere, and the live music is great.

While you wait on your food, you get free garlic-butter yeast rolls that are as good as you will ever eat. Wee ordered gumbo and the crayfish special. Both were GREAT! We ate at noon, and the bill was around $20 for the two of us. (It is about twice as expensive at the evening meal though). My wife "Liked"... More

Great Cajun cuisine. The wedge salad was as good as any I have had anywhere. New Orleans style bread pudding was great. A very pleasant experience. The service was a little slow considering we were there at 3pm but we were a group of 10.

Flavor was good. Very thick, cooked correctly for med rare, but not the tenderest. Doesn't come with a salad. Cajun stuffed potato was only a half of a potato. That's all it came with besides the rolls. Should have ordered seafood.

Miss Susan took me to the Lufkin Ralph & Kacoo's to celebrate my birthday, and a fine time was had by all. I had The Seafood Platter ($19.99) and she had Shrimp Three Ways ($12.99). Miss Susan pronounced her meal excellent, and mine ranged from "good" (fish fillets, and stuffed crab) through "very good" (fried oysters) to "excellent" (jumbo shrimp... More

We visited Ralph and Kacoo's as a group. We sat on the patio on our last evening in Lufkin and wanted to eat, have a drink, and visit. The restaurant was beautiful, clean, the food good, the drinks were good, and the service was good. The only complaint I have is that there was a band playing on the patio,... More
