“This place is AWESOME!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2014

I love Creole / Cajun food in general, but it has to be done right. This is the place to go for New Orleans cajun/creole food. I went to New Orleans several times, but latest was for my Honeymoon, and sampled all the food I could while there, and this was right up there with the best New Orleans had to offer. I like the mix up the traditional dishes with some new flavors and all over rice. That's the right way. It was nice inside, but you gotta come for the food. Wish we had one of these in the bay area; I'd be there every night!

“Great Cajun food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014

First time in, we each picked something different; Chicken & Sausage Gumbo, Smoked Andouille, Shrimp & Chicken Jambalaya, Shrimp & Corn Etouffee, Red Beans & Sausage, and Beignets for dessert. Everything was excellent! What great southern comfort food! We will be back for sure.

“Authentic Cajun Style food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

Diverse menu, I couldn't believe they had crawdads (crayfish) on the menu. I love red beans and rice and theirs did not let me down. They were delicious!!! The beignets were sooooo good, better than many I have had in Louisiana. Prices are very reasonable, and the people are very friendly. I have recommend Roux Dat to several friends already. Definitely making this a regular place for us to come enjoy some great food.

“Looking forward to our next visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2014

We were looking for a lunch venue different from the usual fare in Capitola and tried Roux Dat Cajun Creole for the first time. RDCC is located at the Brown Ranch Marketplace across from the Capitola Mall. Food is ordered and purchased at the counter and delivered to your table. (Muffaletta was not one the menu but we were told it will be in time.) We enjoyed the tasty shrimp po' boy and the delicious jambalaya. Heat can be added to any dish using selections on the table. The interior walls and art are colorful and fun. Other interior designs and the regional background music adds to dining in enjoyment.. There are 2 tables outside for additional seating.

If you are looking for a change in the usual fare in Capitola, you might want to try Roux Dat Cajun Creole. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals and look forward to trying other menu items. (We had overlooked this before we ordered but RDCC offers a half and half option to have 2 items on a meal dish.)

We had a 60th birthday party there with friends -- it could not have been better! Great atmosphere, authentic food at such a reasonable price, wonderful service. Will definitely eat there many more times.
