Something's Missing from the Management

We hadn't been here for a long time but decided to try it for lunch. We noticed that everything had been redecorated. There were two young servers and the place wasn't crowded but it took a long time to get our drink orders. Once the 2nd waiter took our order he was back in 5 minutes to take it... read more

Outstanding Cajun, Creole, and Caribbean sauces highlight well-cooked entrees in generous portions. Also try the Cajun cheese fries appetizer - you might just want to make that your entire meal.

I don't recommend, eat anywhere else but here. Fake cajun.. If you've been to NOLA, you'll prefer Popeyes... Much closer to the mark. the seasoning and flavor is all off, way over priced, and the staff is incompetent. How is this place even open? It was dead on a Friday at 1245. This was by far the worst meal ever... More

Have not been to this restaurant since it was at its old location on a side street north of central. After tonight's meal I will not be back again. My husband and I had a rare bit of alone time later in the evening and rather than fight the crowds decided to give it a try. The hostess was pleasant... More

Went here for a family gathering and was curious to try it. It started fairly well enough with a friendly server to seat us and take drinks. The first hiccup came through in taking at least 15 minutes for just waters to come. Thought it would pass and then it took forever for her to come back and take our... More

The service was really slow (Tuesday night) and there was only one waiter and a host trying to help. I used to go here years ago at the old location and it was excellent. This time the food took a really long time. The shrimp with Jamaican sauce was what I remembered and very good. My partner's crawfish was lukewarm... More

20 minutes for a cup of Gumbo- all heat no flavor, 1 shrimp mostly onions and no roux flavor. Great Beer ! Jambalaya, had some nice flavor profile but very very short on chicken and sausage. Bread Pudding- poor execution but sauce was very good, Bourbon Pecan pie, good pie- just about a 18-20 cut very small for the $... More

I really enjoy Cajun food and have eaten it quite a bit. The food here was average, I had frog legs for an appetizer and alligator a la carte. The legs were good and it had a good batter, but the batter fell off. The alligator was decent and I had the Cajun sauce extra hot. It was poet good... More

I discovered Ragin' Shrimp in 1999 when I lived in Albuquerque for a brief time. Since that time when I have a road trip that takes me from Texas to California, I ALWAYS, I MEAN ALWAYS take I-40 thru Albuquerque so I can have a meal here!!! Really, it only adds about 100 miles to my trip. WORTH THE DRIVE!!!... More

After reading about this restaurant and being an experienced fan of Cajun cooking and food, our comfort food, we looked this place up. parking lot small and cramped. Had to wait to be seated and dining room cramped and dark. Server was polite but slow, however this was with out a doubt the worst food ever cooked. poorly spiced and... More
