A Little Bit of History:
Est. December 18, 1992

Stepping through the door at Ragin’ Cajun is like walking into the living room of someone’s house. (Considering it was once a living room) Unlike the awkwardness that would arise on such an occasion, the staff here welcomes you with open arms. Just like Tracie always had…

Tracie Orsi-Godier sadly passed away February 1, 2015 after a short but mighty battle with Bladder Cancer. She was the original everything at Ragin’ Cajun & our forever favorite Creole Girl. Not much has changed at Cajun since her passing. Our hearts are heavy but we know she is smiling down on us.  The food is still cooked exactly like she taught us and we were able to do some renovations that were on her to-do list. While there’s no way to possibly fill her shoes, we shall continue to follow the footprints she left behind.
