Best Cajun Restaurant: The Lost Cajun Eatery

The Lost Cajun Eatery was named the Crossroads' best Cajun restaurant by Advocate readers.

The authentic Cajun food and its long-time service in the area are what Terry Ellis, owner of the restaurant, believes put them at the top of the list.

"We've been there 21 years, and it's a true pleasure and honor to be out here," he said.

Ellis, who took over the restaurant four years ago, said he has maintained the restaurant's reputation for good food.

"The food is authentic, the seafood is domestic and we're strictly a restaurant," Ellis said.

Other restaurants that serve Cajun food have other things that pull away from the restaurant, he said. At The Lost Cajun, he and his wife devote their energy to producing great Cajun cuisine, he said.

"The Cajun boil is mainstay, we have steak and other great food, but that combination of crawfish, shrimp, potatoes, corn and sausage is delicious," he said.
