Inviting somebody to break bread is an act of hospitality, like when a strongman breaks his door in half so you can come inside. Share a meal with this Groupon.
$20 for $40 Worth of Cajun Food
Fried crawfish tails ($9.95) and fried green tomatoes ($7.95) ready appetites for chicken étouffée ($14.95), blackened farm-raised catfish paired with garlic mashed potatoes ($17.95), and creole shrimp sautéed with peppers and onions ($16.95). See the full menu.
Housed inside a mansion, Cajun Queen smacks of New Orleans, its home-like confines decked out in bayou-themed decor. Vibrant purple paint, Mardi Gras–masks affixed to the walls, and live jazz music compete for attention against a colorful wall mural depicting three gators on a picnic.
The kitchen staff foregoes gator, however, and instead cooks up gulf creatures such as shrimp, crawfish, oysters, and scallops, each served in various New Orleans–fashions: splayed over rice in an étouffée, sautéed creole-style with tomatoes and onions, or blown straight out of a clarinet. Encrusted with a mélange of spices, farm-raised catfish and new york strip steaks sizzle on the grill until blackened, and then join a mound of garlic mashed potatoes on the eatery’s wooden dining tables set up on either inside or on the spacious back patio. Come the weekend, Sunday brunch pairs eggs benedict and andouille sausage with Kahlua-laced coffee.

“Parking is behind the restaurant, we had to park along the street since their lot was full, but there are clearly marked areas where you can and can't park so it's not a big deal or a long walk. There is a neat little park behind the restaurant where we walked while we waited, as they text your cell phone when your table is ready so you don't have a radius where your traditional buzzer will work. Very neat atmosphere and excellent food!”
