Finally tried this place, it's on Grosebeck off Palasota via Finefeather, the old Gina's restaurant..

Best food I've had in this area in a long time. Super nice owners, and not just the best cajun food, I'd put it up against any of the 'greats' around here.

Anyone else been ?

I haven't been in a long time, just because it isn't in my area of town. I agree that it is really good, though.

It's amazing. We've been going since they moved to that location.

My family go semi-regularly, probably 6-7 times this past year. The food is good and the owners are pretty cool. I heartily recommend it.

Went saturday at lunch. Blacked catfish, friend shrimp, potato salad and green beans. I agree that it's one of the top restaurants in the area regardless of other's acclaim and price point. It's fantastic.

I have been once and enjoyed it. It is BYOB if you like to have a beer with your cajun food.

Owner went on a rant about crawfish over the weekend. Apparently not enough people buying it. Needs to get the word out

Went a few weeks ago for the first time. It is good, but they were out of all crawfish dishes which was very disappointing.

Went to their old location once and it was phenomenal. Need to make it over to their new place!

I am from New Orleans. I try to support them as much as I can. Love it.

Went about a month ago. First time visit to new location. Food was great and owner was cool. Saw some past and present Aggie football players eating there too. Will be back soon.

Edit: no idea how that emoji got selected.

I went there a few times when they were in CS, and the food was good. Haven't been to the new one. Are they open only during the day?

Love their food and yes, everyone's very nice! Try the meat pies - they're delish!

So is everything there really spicy? I don't mind a little, but nothing overwhelming

Are there two If these in town, because y'all can't be talking about the place I went last week.
Slow. Slow. Slow. The dirty rice was terrible.

While they have never set any speed records for service, they've always been really nice. And their food has been as close to authentic Cajun as I have found around here (Hebert's is the other) and I really like their dirty rice and everything else I've had there.

You went a week ago and it moved you so much you searched for this older thread and posted about it? Nice thread bump. I've been a couple of times. Great people and great food.

I went a couple of weeks ago also based on the reviews here and was not that impressed. Didn't search out this thread to post a negative review. Just saw that it was still active so thought I would give my two cents worth.

Maybe I just caught them on an off day, but both of the sides I had were cold in the middle, the fried fish was just average, and it took a full 30 minutes to get our food, despite the restaurant being less than half full. Sounds like my experience was not typical, so I'll probably give them another shot.

On a positive note, the people there were very nice, so no complaints on that.

Of course they're slow. They're a "mom-and-pop" type place that makes food from scratch, not some some regurgitated frozen garbage like what you'd find at Razoo's.

I've been a couple times and have to say their gumbo and boudin balls are the best I've ever had. I even told Cory? that when he personally checked on us during our meal.

Didn't realize they had moved out of the gas station (good move) and had a bigger location. Will have to check it out!

No place is spot on every time. No place. And some people don't care for some particular styles of cooking. I've been supporting these people since they were in the gas station at the corner of Welsh and SW. As was mentioned it's cooked from scratch so each time I have found it to be a bit different but always excellent. Now I want to go there again.

I'm glad someone posted this thread. I have been meaning to try this place forever and I actually thought it had closed down. I am making plans to go there soon.

I've never heard about it before reading this. I went tonight to try it out. It was FANTASTIC! Great food, owner is super nice! Would definitely recommend it, and will definitely be back!
