“A Five Minute Trip to the Big Easy in Bayside”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

Bourbon Street Cafe is no secret to residents of Queens near and far with a penchant for Cajun Cuisine. From the moment you walk through the door, past the wrought iron railings separating the bar from the dining rooms you can "laissez les bon temps roulez." The ambience is pure "N'Awlins!" Ample portions are the norm and it is considered neither gauche nor unusual to see other patrons (or oneself!) leaving with a doggie bag. Even the leftovers make great noontime meals the next day. Special occasions or any occasion is a fine reason to head over to Bell Boulevard and treat yourself to a Cajun feast!

“Great Price for Good Portions and Great Food”
Reviewed January 16, 2012

I've eaten at Bourbon Street numerous times and have yet to be let down. I usually go for their steak which is always cooked perfectly. Monday nights is the best night to go if steak is your thing as they have a pre-fix option which is about $22 and includes soup salad, steak and a glass of wine.

They also can accommodate large groups but make sure to call ahead of time. I've arranged 3-4 birthday gatherings here and so far everyone's been happy with the ambiance and food!

PS parking is usually annoying on Bell blvd. but no worries there is municipal parking only about a block and a half away!
