In case you're trying to find the restaurant and miss the huge red crawfish covered in Christmas lights, Ragin Cajun is situated next to the railroad tracks. The bench-style tables are covered in plastic red picnic covers. The walls are adorned with Louisiana, Mardi Gras and LSU paraphernalia. The constant stream of diners attests to the popularity of the crawfish, po boys, seafood and gumbo. If the counter service in the main dining area isn't your preference, there is a smaller table-service area to the right as you enter towards the back of the restaurant. Happy hour happens every weekday starting at 3 p.m. and runs until 7 p.m., except on Mondays, when it lasts until closing.
