Tracie Orsi is self taught. She opened Ragin' Cajun in 1992. The restaurant started out in a small storefront on Main Street and has since moved to Highway 35. She is also known for her Southwest restaurant Armadillo Crossing which she sold 1996 and Cuban Caribbean restaurant, Tortugas which sold in 2006. Orsi loves to play with different flavors though keeps everything simple and according to style. If you catch her on a good night she'll treat you to a very animated story!

Rated 3 out of 5 by The 1st time we went the appetizer was amazing the entree of creole was nothing special.. quality of seafood was excellent.. this last visit my boyfriend's sirloin was tasty and cooked perfectly but a bit chewy, I had the Spanish paella it wasn't very tasty and the overall dish was very dry especially the chicken..coming from the ironbound section of Newark I know about Paella! Considering the prices I expect better food we probably will not return Jul 3, 2015
