And I can only judge based on what I ate: the Gumbo, the Jambalaya, and the Red Beans & Rice...so don't let any unkind words be too discouraging. That's only three items from Baby Kay's large menu. But they're three of cajun cookin's giant essentials...gotta get em' perfect to make this Southern boy a regular. The Gumbo's seafood option clearly has shrimp added 'too order'...which means that briny, fishy goodness isn't stewed all day into every drop of every soupy spoonful. I know making two whole batches each day(one with, one w/o seafood) is expensive, but it may be worth it. I won't even go into why it needs crab in-the-shell added, but the oversight of not adding okra- approaches sacrilegious! The jambalaya gets pluses for not coming swamped in a thick tomato sauce (whoever started that idea in Phoenix should be tarred!), but still, this was on the dry side. It clearly seemed like a Dirty Rice recipe with a few chicken and sausage chunks tossed in after the fact. Again, I understand it's economical, but the flavor suffers. The RedBeans&Rice was the most authentic of the three dishes I tried. When gas prices go down, I may come back for some catfish! Love the staff...very friendly.
