My whole family loves the kitchen where we are treated like family in a generous way. The food is authentic and delicious. The owner becomes your best friend on your first visit.

We absolutely love this place we always agree on spending our special occasions at Cajun kitchen. My husband and I have been eating here for over 13 years and counting, spending our anniversary every year. The food is always fresh, hot and delicious. The Cole slaw is tangy, sweet and crunchy. The red beans and rice are to die for and salmon or catfish always cooked to perfection. We can't live without the bread pudding and always enjoy a dish before we leave.

This was the worst restaurant I've been to in a long time. Besides the food being mediocre, the waitress/owner was rude, didnít seat us, didnít refill our drinks, didnít bring us our food or didnít bring us the check. My husband had to get up 3 times during the course of our dinner to get service. And we had to go search for someone to pay our tab. At first I thought it was generally bad service. Then I noticed she was being delightful and extra attentive to other customers. The only difference between us and them was our skin tone. I usually hate jumping to the conclusion that we were discriminated against due to our race. But when other customers and waitresses notice the same problem, then I know itís not just me. As Americans we love to think that we have grown past this issue and have higher ideals. Then something happens that reminds me that we havenít grown past it. It is still an issue. While I know itís not everyone, but these archaic neanderthals hurt me to my core. It causes a pain that is indescribable and it makes me angry. This is why people of color are angry. We want to live our lives as everyone else. We want to raise our kids, enjoy life and be treated with respect. But people like those at the Cajun Restaurant strip us of the basic respect every human is entitled to have. The most dis-empowering thing is that I canít do anything about it except never go there again. I could put on a one woman protest. But like so many others of her kind, sheíll just hide behind her self-righteousness. Sheíll excuse her actions and blame my over-sensitivity. So Iím writing this to those who incorrectly state that racism is dead. Youíre just blind to its existence and part of the reason it will never be irradiated. Your silence only reinforces their behavior by saying itís okay to behave that way. Just like the other customers and waitresses that were there that day. I challenge you to not be like them but to be better. Think about it.

The Cajun Kitchen has the most authentic Jambalaya since I left Bijoux ten years ago. With a great dťcor and wonderful murals this little slice of the French Quarter of New Orleans takes me back to the good old days of home cooked meals that my mother could only dream of. Tho the prices are a little on the high sideÖ it is most worth it! My wife go there every time we are in town, and sometimes twice. Trissell.biz
