Yes I have, Rick76. I never got to the original location but always heard great things about it. I thought it was the best gumbo I’ve ever had tho it was surprisingly thin and watery. I had the seafood platter, which was way too much food for me. It’s one of the down home cajun places I was going to recommend to skinsfan.06 even tho its 35-40 minutes from downtown Houston.
Skinsfan – Floyd Landry and Bret Floyd were two of the original principals in Landry’s; the original group split up about 25 years ago and none of them have anything to do with Landry’s Inc, as I understand it. Floyd’s was originally on Durham, just north of Washington, on the near west side, about 2-3 miles from downtown Houston. They sold that to their employees a couple of years ago and its now known as Mardi Gras Cafe. If you use the search feature on b4-u-eat and enter floyd, it still pulls up the Mardi Gras. That’s the closest to downtown Houston ‘down-home’ cajun place I’ve been able to think of but I’ve never been.
I had a waiter trainee on my visit to Floyd’s in Webster and it took forever to get my food and I was getting rather agitated and thinking it was due to his incompetence, but reading the reviews on b4-u-eat, apparently that wait is characteristic of the place. I don’t think Floyd was there the day I stopped in.
Rick, since you’re from OH I guess there’s not much point in asking if you’ve been to Ragin’ Cajun or Big Woodrow’s? How about any of your friends?
