Stopped in while in Lufkin on business and had lunch. This restaurant really impressed us all. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent. I highly recommend this as the best place to eat when you're in Lufkin.

My husband and I share the Ralph's platter and usually have enough left over for a light supper. The rolls are the best I've ever eaten and the onion rings can't be beat. Always talk about trying another restaurant when we are in town and end up here every time.

The Crabmeat Au Gratin arrived warm and the toast points were delivered to my wife's lap, which put our server into a quandry. He stood by helplessly trying to determine whether or not he should try and pick the toast points out of my wife's lap or not. He chose wisely and stood there like a deer in the headlights,... More

Why dine at a yucky fast food restaurant, when you can enjoy a wonderful seafood or steak lunch here for about the same price. The express lunches are so reasonable & delicious. Everything on the menu is fantastic. If you possibly have room for desserts they are awesome, too. Service & atmosphere is always excellent!

Had dinner here on a Saturday, quite busy but got there at 6:00 just missed the crowd. Lots of large parties around which caused service to be off just a bit. Ordered the grilled bacon wrapped shrimp with cole slaw and dirty rice. Shrimp needed to be cooked a bit more, the dirty rice was very good and so was... More

I went here for a business lunch and didn't pay much attention to prices but they are a little pricey. However, it is so totally worth it for the shrimp Alfredo. I loved it - better than an Italian restaurant.

Wanted some seafood, recommended by locals when we asked around. The environment was nice, dim lighting and waitstaff was polite and friendly. The bread was soo good! Salads were good. Ordered the Seafood Platter to share on a date and would recommend it. Almost everything on the platter was fried except the baked potato and the flavor was Cajun. On... More

There was nothing about the food at this place that was good. I ordered the seafood platter and my wife ordered the pasta primavera with blackened chicken. I had overheard a waiter telling someone that the vegetable of the day was green beans, squash and broccoli and sure enough, when the pasta came - that was the vegetables, what little... More

Ralph and Kacoo's is a must if you're visiting Lufkin, Tx- I don't really like Cajun food, but there are many more offerings on the menu--the bread is some of the best I've ever eaten- worth the trip just for the bread. On Sundays they serve Chicken and Dressing- I make really good chicken and dressing and this is just... More
