Truthe be told this is the real reason I volunteer for the Philly home show. The food is pure Cajun and the service is great. I suggest everything on the menu and would kill for the fried mac and cheese, it too is Cajun style. Go empty cause you will get filled up!

Tasty comfort food at a reasonable price located at the Reading Terminal Market. Service was friendly but just ok. They could use some organization to improve efficiency and service. Expect long lines especially during lunch and weekends. Try the gumbo and the train wreck!

I have loved this place since the first time I ordered. There is no wrong choice when you order from here. Everything is fresh and ready to go. The staff is pleasant and has a great sense of humor. If you like spice, definitely try here!

I am from Louisiana (Cajun Country) and currently reside in Philly with my wife. When we were told about Beck's we made a special trip to the Reading Terminal Market to assess the food here. Overall, the food was pretty good. It is always difficult to recreate authentic-tasting food from areas others than the original place; however, Beck's is as close to Cajun as I have had the pleasure of tasting. The Shrimp Po'Boy is pretty good and if you are lucky enough to visit on Wednesday or Sunday, you can treat yourself to a beignet (pronounced ben-yay). Honestly, this is my go-to place when in Reading Terminal Market. If you never plan to visit LA or New Orleans, then you should treat yourself to this place to try Cajun food,
