My husband and I often eat at Ralph and Kacoo's! We love the fried pickles for appetizer , he usually gets chicken fried steak for dinner and me, I get the jumbo fried shrimp ! Totally recommend it, the aren't skimpy with the portions! Get ready to eat!! The bread they bring out before your meal is so yummy :)

It is just not the same as the Ralph and Kacoo's in Bossier City, Louisiana. I stopped here during lunch while traveling back from Houston. The hostess was friendly enough, but the dining room and wait staff was not really inviting. Maybe because I was dining alone, but I do that alot. I think that the openness of the area... More

Very good experience. Food and service was excellent. If you are going as a couple do not bring any less than $100.

While traveling on business, I and my coworker stopped here for lunch. We both had eaten at the Shreveport, LA location and decided to give this one a try. We were not disappointed.

The appetizers are smaller and cost more than the fall of last year. My étouffée was room temperature and when I let my five year old try it she said: "that étouffée doesn't have any flavor! Who wants Cajun food without any flavor?" That just about sums it up.

I have been here many times without a problem. The night we visited we had a young waiter you was obviously not very experienced and messed up a lot of things in regards to serving our meal like bringing the entries and appetizer at the same time. Get that fixed and they would still be rated 5 stars for me.

Really a great restaurant. I was there for lunch with a group of 7 other women. Our waiter was attentive and saw to all our needs. The food was delicious. I can honestly say it was one of the best lunches I have had. I had the stuffed shrimp with potatoes and vegetables.

Thank Diana L
