So my father-in-law loves this place (he's not a local), extended family doesn't complain, but we're all from K.C. and my family thinks this food is awful. Supposedly it's bayou, Cajun food. I guess I just don't get the region. It's all canned, excess bottle seasonings, frozen shrimp and a couple of sticks of fried spaghetti. If you make it... More

Rumor has it...the owner drives to New Orleans and brings back fresh Golf Coast shrimp routinely. And it shows! Shrimp dinners and shrimp po-boys are amazing. The menu isn't huge and it's a little pricy. But this New Orleans inspired restaurant is a fun place with quality food.

We were looking for a place to have a beer and happened upon this amazing restaurant! The owner Theresa was very friendly and informative, regarding their menu and the freshness of the food and how they get it directly from NOLA. We will be back, one of the best Cajun foods we have eaten. ( aside from NOLA)

Food is ok on the pricey side for sandwiches. Service is good, the bad news is the restaurant is smokey. Won't go back

I drove right by this place. I was looking for it. Figured it was out of business. Glad I stopped and asked someone where it was located. So worth the stop. The recommended flat iron steak and home made crispy chips was awesome. The steak was cooked just right. Dean the owner served me himself. I recommend the house salad... More

Tried this place for the first time and we would go back. The service was on point. Tried their fried pickles and can honestly say they are the best that we have had to date, highly recommend. The gumbo was great. The voodoo salad is good, the dressing was a little sweeter then I prefer. I had the shrimp etouffee,... More

I haven't tasted gumbo this good since I've eaten it in Louisiana. The shrimp Po Boy that my wife had was equally well done. And best of all was the fried pecan pie which was a tasty twist to pecan pie. Our waitress was a great waitress and also was the day cook. I would defiantly go back the next... More

Stopped in here for lunch recently and was pleasantly surprised by how delicious our food was. Restaurant was relatively quiet the day we were there. Owner was friendly and chatted for a bit with us and our kids which is a nice touch. Service was quick and efficient. Food was delicious but was a little surprised at the price for... More

Bout dang near the best Pork Tender I've EVER had. Period. Wife loves the red beans and rice too. The Muffelletta (sp) is awesome too. The little pecan pies they give you when you get your check are killer! Friday nights during season are busy as hell but weeknights and off season weekends are easy going. Dean and Theresa are...
