OMG I tried the crawfish combo and it was amazing!! Usually get the pick 3, which is awesome, but the étouffée is served on dirty rice and comes with fried crawfish tails and is out of this world!! Always the best Cajun food around and I lived in Baton Rouge for 8 years so I have a good feel for... More

It's a small out of the way restaurant but it has very good food. I tried the Cajun Fried Steak (Chicken Fried) and it was probably one of my top two I have ever tried. Beans and rice are also great. I am not a sea food fan but the people around me seemed to have no complaints. It's not... More

Great food!! We loved it. My mom was in from Columbus, Ohio and was amazed with the fresh catch of the day. I've been many times and never been disappointed.

Went for lunch and ordered red beans and rice- it was just OK. Banana pudding wasn't good- whipped cream with a few banana pieces and some nilla wafer crumbs. Sweet tea was strong and good. Service was quick and great, place was packed.

We had not been there in quite a while so we decided to stop in and we were so happy when we left! I wanted catfish and so my husband had it as well. It was perfect. The service is outstanding and we will be back soon.

Mediocre food, dubious neighborhood, and about as Cajun as pizzahut is Italian. Dirty rice comes with almost everything, it was too dry and not very tasty. Fries appear to be handcut and were very good, chicken was nothing special. I found the prices were a little high for the quality of the food.

We went and it really didn't taste very good. The red beans and rice tasted strange. The crawfish was ok but better somewhere else.

Best Cajun food in East Texas in my opinion. My particular favorites are Dudley's crawfish enchiladas, etoufee, crawfish pies, boiled crawfish (available in season only) and seafood gumbo.

Thank johnrbolster
