Throughout the 1980's and 90's Ragin Cajun gained a reputation for having high quality Cajun Cuisine and the best Boiled Crawfish in the city.

Rated 3 out of 5 by After over 25 visits this is the first time that we were not happy with our meals. Everything seemed a little off. Even the rice and beans were under seasoned. Really hoping it was just a bad night and that things will be back to delicious next time. Aug 4, 2014
