Our kids have eaten there a few times, we went there with them. The place is not fancy. It is however busy and the food is why. Everything from gator bites, to fried crawfish tails were well prepared, great sauces, and just the right amount of heat. The Catfish Tchoupitoulas is Catfish filet stuffed with crab cake, topped with seafood sauce, served with potatoes. This is a must and was the hit of the night; but all the meals were very good. The service was prompt and friendly. The dinner salad is plain and could use a little imagination. Yes, the place could use a coat of paint and a little general sprucing up. But, if you want a great Cajun meal, this is the place to go. Nice selection of Abita beers too.

Cajun with a soul food twist. Service is excellent - company incredible - food is finger lickin' good.

Bloody Mary's could get ya' in trouble. No better Cajun outside Louisiana. Take time to meet Maudie and Carla - you will love them.

We always have such a great time and enjoy the food. We usually have the same girl take care of us and she is so sweet and knows exactly what we want. We met Maudy who is from New Orleans....so she obviously knows what she is doing. Its one of our favorites

Who would have guessed you would have a taste of Na'lens in Arkansas. YES, we eat in Na'lens and contrary to another post, what we ate here was good. Agreed, the atmosphere could up it's game, but hey, it's Arkansas not the Quarters. Besides, there's nothing quite like that south'in hospitality.

My family and i just moved here from Baton Rouge, Louisiana so of course we had to try this restaurant. We were extremely disappointed. We ordered the red beans and rice with sausage and jambalaya. They were no good. The Jambalaya is what i was looking forward to and it tasted just like the boxed Zatarans jambalaya and the red beans and rice were edible. For the food quality we had it was EXTREMELY overpriced. Also the atmosphere was not a New Orleans atmosphere. It was very dull. There should be some color on the walls and some Zydeco music playing or something. They need to remodel and hire an authentic cook. I think that anyone who has rated this restaurant "great" has not had to opportunity to eat real Louisiana cooking. It was the first and last time we'll eat there.
