Best cajun food around my area. What a selection! Gator, shrimp, steak! Oh-la-weee! Service was exellent...food was great. Steak cooked to order Beignet were awsome. Wish they had coffee with chickory, but not a deal breaker. Live music! Zydeco in the restrooms. Don't miss a chance to visit!

When I travel on business and am alone I like to eat in a restaurant's bar if available. The Ralph & Kacoo's bar is quiet (for a bar), clean and the service is good.

Best seafood and steak restaurant in Lufkin, particularly if you like a Cajun twist. Variety and ability to select several items for an entree are pluses.

Husband had magi magi and loved it. I had shrimp brochettes. Looked and tasted like cooked in oven or nuked. Prefer grilled but whatever. Baked potato was lukewarm but they gave me a new hot one. Bread was yeast rolls. Excellent.. Hot and fresh! Not my best dinner but ok.

Thank Cindy B
