First time to try this RC location on Gessner at Westheimer. I always have a good meal when I go with the seafood, but today I wanted a Muffalotta. It's not that it was bad, it was average with nothing exceptional about it. All the ingredients were on it, but it just wasn't oozing with that olivey mix. The bread... More

Great atmosphere, great food!! I had 1/2 fried crawfish, 1/2 etoufee... Very tasty! Hubby had shrimp brochettes, he won! Really yummy! And of course we shared the boudin balls, really good!!! Only thing for me, could have used more spice! I like it hot.

This Westheimer location is an outpost of the original Ragin Cajun on Richmond which has been serving up original Louisiana fare for decades. The red beans and rice and jambalaya are some of the best in town. Full bar, Zydeco music and a great staff makes you feel like you are in the Big Easy.

This place serves up the best boiled crawfish I have had in Houston. I have not tried other menu items at this location but they do a very good job of the boiled crawfish. The restaurant has a laid back atmosphere and is always busy. Check it out if you are in the area and looking for some Cajun eats.

I love the gumbo, one of the best places to get gumbo that is close to homemade. The fried shrimp & fish is good as well.

What a hoot. This was the perfect lunch stop after a day of Houston sight-seeing. The oysters were big, fat and fresh, and the shrimp gumbo was plentiful, but nice and light so I didn't feel like I was walking out with a load in my gut. Tasted great, too. Long tables, plenty of beer and several football games on... More
