Re: “Don's Bayou Cajun Cookin'

A Friend and I waited (after calling ahead days before) to experience Frog Legs remembered from years ago, and arrived early on Friday to beat the rush. We didnt have to worry, there was no one there at 4:30 and I doubt there will be anyone there at 7:30 if word gets around.

I'm a great fan of Cajun, having been in the oil refinery business on the Gulf for 34 years. Been to the "Big Easy" many times and sampled food from Chocolate Bayou to Baton Rouge. I DO NOT RECOMMEND this place because of the prices, service, and quality of food.

First of all, I would love to see a wonderful cajun place in Tucson, but it has to be a value to draw people in, both the customers who appreciate the food and the ones who have to be convinced. Dons will not fit that bill.

Here is our menu, as ordered for the meal (keeping in mind that everything is served on styrofoam or in plastic cups). We both had Frog Legs (undercooked), cornbread (teflon food), and potatoe salad in 6 oz cups. We split a 12 oz crawfish etoufe (sorry about my spelling) and the crawfish was like fingernail clippings (but plentiful-my favorite part of the meal). We also had Gator bites (you could have had the entire thing served in a shot glass) that was over cooked and greasy. Add two 12 oz beers. How much?

$50 before tip, which I did not leave. Why?

My buddy ordered his main course before any of the additives. They asked what I wanted and I said the same as him, and then added the gator, etc. They brought out one meal and said that was what we understood. Lets refer back to the fact that we were the only ones there!

We sat outside in an overgrown ex=nursery area.

Not for me. Take your chances, and if you know of a Cajun place on the east side of Tucson, let me know.
