“Fried oysters and gumbo”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

Our favorites are the fried oysters and the gumbo. Both were served hot and delicious as always.

We also had the crabcakes which are rich with the good stuff.

Service at the counter is friendly, quick and easy. Order was ready in a few minutes.

“Good for a change from the norm”
Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

Oysters a little mushy but good flavor.

A pit pricy at 10 bucks for seven on a sandwich.

Fries were fresh and hot.

New Orleans is better.

“When I'm Missing Oysters Fried Like Home...”
Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

...this is where I come. Too many well known restaurants fry oysters until they have the texture of RUBBER but not Ragin' Cajun! They do it right! It's a close to Lafayette & Acadiana as you can ever hope to have in Houston!

“Great gumbo”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

Relaxed place but still works for a business lunch (if you can talk loudly). The food was really good and we were definitely full when we left.

“Just Okay”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

We were hoping for some really good Cajun and seafood. The atmosphere was Texas barroom and the food was ordered at the counter. Okay. People at our table got fried shrimp, chicken and shrimp gumbo, a po' boy, and our grandson got a corn dog. It was prepared pretty quickly. The po'boy was just average, the fried shrimp was good, and the gumbo was about like you'd get at Applebees. I'm guessing the corn dog was good. The tab was pretty high and I don't think we'll be back to get what is very average food.
