No no no... this is not the flavor of Louisiana! Jul 03, 2009
I know, why would I choose a restaurant that I don't like for my birthday? It doesn't make sense. Well, there is no restaurant that I really like in Ruston, so I have to give each one of them a try every once in a while.

This restaurant in particular claims they are the flavor of Louisiana, but please don't buy that! If you do, you might not want to have Louisiana food again. I've had several of their especialities, and never really liked any of them. This time I had fried crawfish tails served over a ton of french fries. Sadly, I have to say it tasted like anything but crawfish tails. Sometimes you only tasted the flavor of the bread they fry them with. The sauce they give you to dip them in, it's also nothing special.

One thing I seriously dislike about this restaurant is the size of the plates! It's so enormous that takes my hunger away from me just by looking at it. I had most of it to go, anyway, so I guess I shouldn't complain.

Anyway, this restaurant is not a good choice if you are in Ruston, there is another better restaurant for cajun food, unfortunately it's not open for dinner. I will post a review on that one later on.
