Too bad they pre-chop the brisket and leave it sitting in a bowl so it's easier for them to plate, instead of slicking and chopping it fresh off the brisket per order. They say it's to make sure the customer gets consistent quality; the best part of the brisket. Yet if you order sliced instead of chopped, you get raised eyebrows and they are forced to slice it fresh off the brisket. Sauce is great.
I went to Culpeppers today, We had the seafood platter, and a quartet of Crawfish Etouffee, Red beans and Rice, Maque Choux, and chicken and sausage gumbo. The only thing authentic Cajun about Culpeppers was the music!!! I grew up in New Orleans, that was some of the poorest attemts at reproducing cajun food I have seen in YEARS!!!! Not only was the food terrible, the male owner who took care of our order and "service" he was also smoking in the restaurants office. He left the door open, needless to say the smell was not of the poorly made half-a$$ed food. When the gentleman asked how the food was, I responded kindly by nodding no, he then grumbled about peoples opinions, and different Ideas of cajun, blah blah blah. He seemed very bitter, and had no passion or thanks for even having customers. There was another table that was occupied by coffee drinkers, go figure... Needless to say I Wasted 30+ dollars on food I could have made from a box at home. In my opinion they should have stayed closed!!! I think Cajun food should stay in the south, because nobody here can seem to reproduce it!!! I Will add them to my list of places never to recommend or to return to. I hope this saves someone else their hard earned money, I wish someone would have warned me!! Thanks
Best BBQ in town — Just wish they'd open up a shop downtown! And no joke about the cobbler — the peach is my fav, but the apple's good too.
