We live in New Orleans, but several times visit family in Lake Charles. While traveling west on I-10 it is a must to stop at Cajun Way. As my wife and I discussed Cajun Way is the Mt. Everest (in terms of taste) of Shrimp Po-boys. The variance first and second is considerable. The bread is outstanding and absolutely complements... More

This place has the atmosphere of a chain but gourmet food. The fried seafood is perfect. The shrimp, oysters, and catfish are as good as you will eat anywhere. I read comments that the boudin is average. In my opinion the medium and hot recipe boudin here is wonderful. I wrote another review of this place but it didn't seem... More

We read the reviews, pursued the online menu, and were ready to order once we checked into our hotel just down the road ... But they didn't answer the phone. Sadly, we learned that they were closed on Sunday's (as was Fezzos after 2:00, so we ate at the Rice Palace) :-(

My wife LOVES Fried Catfish. Friday night is Catfish Night at our home. So . . . hearing Cajun Way had reformulated their Fried Catfish, we opted to do it rather than SW Louisiana's BEST EVER version at Fezzo's. You don't go to Cajun Way for the aesthetics of the dining area. It's the most uncomfortable dining room I frequent.... More

We stopped here on a road trip through Louisiana. The location is close to I-10. Atmosphere is comfortable...come as you are, and friendly. Boudin is fabulous! Catfish and shrimp are great. Price is excellent (3 people for $27!)

I would have to give this restaurant a 4 out of 5.Very good food I would recommend Cajun Way Restaurant to anyone looking for food cooked the Cajun Way along with the award winning Boudin they offer! Personally I would like to see more on the seafood platter than this rating would be a 5 out of 5.

Yumminess in a casing, that's what it is. Stopped by because of our Trip Advisory amigos and the fam ordered 3 seafood platters. Teen daughter and I shared one platter. Portions were good. Boudin was very good although I have never had one before to compare it. Staff friendly and place was clean. Limited menu and food is mostly fried... More

I stopped here for lunch based on the positive reviews. I ordered the "seafood platter" and was a bit disappointed with the overall meal, however it had a very bright spot and that was the stuffed shrimp! I would highly recommend them over the other fried shrimp and fish. Next time I will just order them instead of the platter.... More

Traveling from our home in New Mexico to Florida, we're not accustomed to rain OR Cajun food. We pulled off the highway because it was raining so hard, and drove around Crowley to see where to have lunch. (There's a very charming downtown; don't miss it!) Lots of fast food chains around, but luckily, we wandered in here for lunch.... More
