The food was goid but lacked the Cajun spicing I would have liked to have tasted. The Boudin was a bit disappointingly but we will most likely try again.

I had blackened chicken and the flavors were outstanding. My date had zuchini tacos. Neither of us were disappointed. We knew it had a great reputation, but our expectations were exceeded. They really hit it out of the park on this trip.
