It's just like someone plopped Lafayette, La., inside the Loop. The original Ragin' Cajun on Richmond, a casual and often raucus member of the Mandola family's culinary empire, serves up well-seasoned and generous portions of crawfish, boudin and etouffe. Chase a dozen oysters with a spicy Cajun Bloody Mary. Dat's good, cher.
The other locations are serving up the same fine foods, but without the spirit (and noise) of the original.
Vibe: Like sitting around the family dinner table, if your family sucks heads and drinks Dixie beer.
Happy Hour Specials: 3 p.m.-7 p.m. weekdays at all locations except Main Street store
