Bayou Bob's Cajun Restaurant
A taste of New Orleans sizzling in the heart of downtown, Bayou Bob's specializes in heaping helpings of spicy Cajun and down-home comfort delights. Weekends are crowded: waits often exceed an hour, but the lively bar helps pass the time. If you find yourself having trouble deciding on one entree, try one of the combination plates. Each one comes with a wide selection of Cajun standards, ranging from Gumbo and Jambalaya to Blackened Catfish and Red Beans and Rice. This rates very high with families.
I went to lunch with a group of 7 people. We were seated promptly since we were there by 11:30. At 12:15 the manager was promising that our food would be out soon. The group of 5 that came in after us had already been served and the group of 6 that was seated a little after noon were served lunch just 5 minutes after ours arrived. When I expressed displeasure to the manager, her only reply was, "Well, what is the size of that group?' I guess they have an inability to serve groups larger than 6 promptly. When I expressed that this was a very bad experience, the manager just shrugged and sad she was sorry I felt that way. So I shall shrug and let everyone know how much they care about customers.
My wife just moved to the Denver area and usually eat a lot of crawfish this time of year. Multiple coworkers suggested this restaurant.
You have to order crawfish in set of 2 lbs (no big deal) which cost $17! We've eaten a lot of crawfish and this is the most we've ever paid anywhere. Seeing our suprise, the waitress immediately went into a diatribe about how they are not making any money selling them at this price - whatever.
The worst part was that the crawfish were awful. They were chewy and gamey - obviously cooked too long. The rub they used was appropriately spicy, but had way too much garlic. Half of our servings were just claws and tail-less bodies.
Needless to say, we will not be going back. It's sad that the only decent option in town for crawfish is Pappadeaux.
