I’ve tried this place a few times. Service is good, cocktails were well mixed. However, all of our entrees were a bit lack luster and definitely over priced. I give places 3 times before taking it off the list completely. Unfortunately, this past visit took it off my list.

We saw a review of BRQ by the Cajun Ninja and decided to give it a try while in town. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent and there was a lot of it. Our server warned us the portions were big and he was right. In hindsight, we should have shared. We arrived at 11:00 for brunch and were still full that evening. The complimentary chips and pickles are great and it's easy to fill up on them before the food arrives. I had the brisket quesadilla with a side of slaw. I was only able to eat one of the four pieces. Hubs had the half pulled pork/chicken plate with onion rings, which were some of the best I've had. Everything was good and we can't wait to go back to try something else.

My husband and I were excited to try this restaurant because we had heard great reviews. However, we were very disappointed. We arrived early afternoon with reservations only to have to wait for the staff to clear tables and seat us. I ordered an alcoholic beverage only to be told they were out. The appetizer of boudin balls was mediocre and dry. I ordered the Mamou Chicken, which was recommended by the waitress, only to be disappointed once again. The chicken was dry and leathery and arrived luke warm. My husband’s BBQ plate arrived the same. We had planned on ordering a dessert, but after our disappointment with the appetizer and entrees, we decided to skip it. The staff apologized several times informing us they had a busy day and that they were short staffed, however, this doesn’t negate the fact that the food was disappointing.

Appetizers (meatballs and fried okra) were very filling, so four of us split entrees (tuna salad and sliders) for a delicious, satisfying meal. The smoked old fashioned was very good, and the service was perfectly attentive. thanks.
