Met a bunch of pals here for a nice Sunday lunch. Nice fresh oysters. Great hush puppies. I am a fan of the beans and rice. The others all had variants of fried seafood. All was fine. Good service and fair prices.

Good place to grab some LA cooking. Beans and rice are nice and creamy. Just like Mondays in Nawlins. Very good and moist cornbread. Seafood poboys are almost as good as when in Lafayette. Fun atmosphere and friendly service. Good prices.

The food was authentic, but too spicy for me. They should have served more water. It was a cool place still.

The fried shrimp was very good and my son enjoyed his shrimp poboy. The staff was friendly and courteous.

I believe the prices are too high for the quality of the food. The crawfish poboy was good, but the gumbo rue didn't taste too good.

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...More
