    Crawfish is amazing! Seasoning is very spicy, not for the faint of heart, but so worth it. Some of the best I've ever had! Frog legs were forgetful, they should use the crawfish seasoning on them.

    Yes you most definitely have to come here if you love broils or if you've never experienced one. This food is awesome. Seasoning on point.

    Seafood is excellent. The chicken sausage gumbo was delicious and had a rich rue. The hush puppies reminded me of my mother's homemade ones in Louisiana.

    Here's a tip, ladies: don't wear shorts to BB's if you plan to sit on the patio. You won't like what the chairs do to the backs of your thighs when you finally stand up.

    Coming here for lunch is a mistake... Food takes a long time to come out. Other than that, pretty much everything on the menu here is great!

    Giant portions. Lots of cheese. Tex-Cajun definitely includes those two things.

    For a chain, they're food is actually pretty good. When in season, the crawfish are on point as well.

    Baked cajun oysters are greedily buttery. Jalapeño Mac n cheese has a kick to it (obvi).

    Food was just OK, a bit bland. Not sure we would go back. Surf-n-Turf Po-Boy was extremely dry and the bread was chewy. Blacken Boudin was not Blackened and arrived lukewarm. They need a new chef.

    The food is always good here. The service is very inconsistent though. Don't ever go to the BB's in Katy, TX, it has totally gone downhill.
