The food was just average. Etouffee was ordered mild but there was not much flavor. The gumbo was ordered with shrimp and it was good. The flavor was still bland even when ordered mild.

On a rainy afternoon my wife and I visited Big Easy Grill. Being big fans of New Orleans style cuisine, we were anxious and ready to try what we'd heard was the best Cajun food in Springfield. We each ordered something different from the menu....More
