Cooking food over an open flame can impart smoky flavor and seal in savory juices, but cooking food over an eternal flame can get a bobsledding team kicked out of the Olympics.

Cajun Grill and Bar fetes festive dining and a cheery atmosphere with a menu of down-home dining delights. Start with a bowl of homemade shrimp and okra gumbo ($6.95) to heat up appetites and bring tears to nostalgic taste buds' eyes. Seventeen different poboys spread their ingredients across the table like a rémoulade-scented quilt, proffering flavors from classic oyster (seasonal prices) to barbecue beef ($7.95). Cajun Grill’s jambalaya ($8.95) sports a barbershop trio of chicken, shrimp, and sausage, and the rib dinner includes two rib-sticking sides ($10.95). Indecisive guests may opt for the N’awlins sampler ($12.95), which paints a gastronomic mural of jambalaya, gumbo, shrimp creole, fried catfish, and guest solos by Jelly Roll Morton.
While flavorful eats are Cajun Grill’s one true love, it also lavishes attention on local sports. With Saints and LSU games broadcast on three of the restaurant’s 42-inch flat-screen televisions and free shots for every Saints and Tigers touchdown, patrons can enjoy stadium-style viewing without the necessity of chowing down on foam fingers.
Cajun Grill and Bar
Cajun Grill and Bar’s menu teems with New Orleans favorites. Po’ boys occupy a good amount of real estate on the menu: options include catfish, hot sausage patties, N’awlins hot ham and roast beef, or the combo—a mixture of shrimp, oyster, and catfish. Buried deep within the jambalaya is the traditional New Orleans flavor, along with shrimp, chicken, and sausage. The restaurant also serves plenty of seafood platters, including fried shrimp and catfish, and homemade desserts, such as the bread pudding with rum sauce, are a nice capper to every meal.
