Awesome Crawfish

I disagree with the prople who didn't like the crawfish. I can't comment on any of their other food, because I only go there for the crawfish. I'm not sure how they prepare it, but it tastes like they soak the crawfish in butter. Its good. Don't get me wrong, I like crawfish prepared in the traditional Louisiana way and really spicy. There are plenty of places that serve it like that and I frequent them too, bu... view more

Madear's Gumbo

I am from New Orleans, La., born and raised.I too have not found a restaurant that comes close to what I am use to back home. But thank God :DA lady I know who is also from New Orleans sells gumbo frozen FRESH! It's made to order from SCRATCH. Really! It is the most authentic gumbo I've tasted in Austin. It has sausage,fresh shrimp (deveined), big chunks of chicken breast, and believe me it is not lacking flavor.You ... view more

Not even Close to Cajun

I have tried this restaurant three different times hoping for a better experience; it hasn't happened. Do not expect to get Cajun food. I would say it is to Cajun food what Taco Bell is to Mexican food (sorry Taco Bell). The seafood gumbo is made with cooked mini cocktail shrimp and has everything else thrown in that the cook can think of all of which made a gumbo lacking in a distinct flavor. I also tried the Sh... view more

The Best Crawfish EVER

The crabcake appetizer was great and the gumbo was good. The etoufee was good with a definite asian flair. The crawfish came with a nicely spiced sauce, onion, mushrooms, and sausage. It was delicious. I had expected a more traditional Louisiana style but was not at all disappointed. Would definitely make it a regular stop if I was a native.

Great Seafood, year round Crawfish

They serve their own take on crawfish. The mudbugs are smothered in a spicy onion and garlic gravy. They have them mild, med, or hot. The have the full compliment of fixings like corn, potatoes, sausage, mushrooms, etc. I have taken many people there and they all loved it.

Not Louisiana Style Crawfish - Don't Go

The name is very misleading. I am from Louisiana and my husband and I decided to try this new place. Thinking boiled crawfish and Louisiana go hand and hand. We ordered the blue crab and the crawfish though knowing it isn't in season and this place has them flown in from Vietnam. The smell was great but once we received them they were covered in Asian Rooster Sauce to give them that extra kick! It was terrible!! ... view more

The best fried catfish in Austin

This place has really shocked me. It looks like nothing special at all, but the food is really good. I've got to say that I've eaten a lot of catfish in my day, but their fried catfish is undeniably the best I've ever had. Not only that, but it's consistent. I've been back 5 times & it's amazing every time. I'm not a crawfish eater, so I can't judge that, but the crawfish ettoufette is quite spectacular. I seriously ... view more

DO NOT EAT HERE!!!

So I love eating out and have been to many different restaurants. My boyfriend recommended this place because he lived on Wells Branch and heard great things about it. We both went together for the first time and we HATED it! The crawfish smelled like dirty socks, and the food looked and taste like cafeteria food, I swear......It had no flavor. \r \r The clutter of the decorations inside made it look tacky and ... view more
