I would not call this an authentic Cajun eatery, but it isn't a bad place to go if you have time before your movie starts in the same strip mall. I've been here three times, and it's not great, but it'll do. The green chili is really good, but really spicy and I would say get a bowl for dinner. The alligator bites were VERY greasy, I'm not sure if that is normally how alligator tastes. I was not a fan of the red beans and rice- the beans were undercooked to my liking. The gumbo was good- not great, but does in a pinch. Great service even in a "seat yourself" venue.
Always a tough choice to go here or not. By far the best seafood in the springs. However it will be an hour before you get your food, and the waitstaff will not check on you unless prompted. If Mr. English would hire a real staff instead of relying on family this place would take off.
I thought the shrimp was outstanding. The overall atmosphere was not.
Boudin was fair but a bit ricey. Gumbo tasted burnt but I only tried once. The bread pudding was phenomenal and One of the Best I have EVER tasted. Etouffee was tomato based. The shrimp were well seasoned and fresh. I would return for desert but not basics
