One of the best things about touring the southern part of Louisiana is the food.  I could literally map out a vacation down there around restaurants, stretching from Lafayette to New Orleans. And although it’s been several years since I was last there, my brunch at Cajun King brought back plenty of memories.  And the reason is because one of the owners, Simeon Adda (Ken Mills is the other owner), lived in New Orleans and learned to cook there.

Cajun King is buffet-only — all you can eat and one-price-fits-all.  The buffet is $8.99 and provides a little taste of everything, with around 20 items.  The brunch buffet, which adds standard breakfast fare in addition to all of the regular items, is $9.99 and available on the weekends.  Kids 5 and under are free while kids 6-12 are $5.99. This isn’t necessarily my favorite restaurant model since it means you’re likely going to eat too much and also have to spend at least $12 per person after tax and tip, but the upside is that you get to try everything any time you go.

Now, I’m not going to get into an essay on the differences between Soul food, Creole food and Cajun food. It seems to me that Cajun King is serving up a very unique mix of all of the three that I haven’t found elsewhere in the city, and let me just say that it works. The food is delicious and the service is outstanding.

As soon as you sit down, piping hot catfish fillets and fresh beignets are placed before you. Now, let’s just talk about this catfish for a minute. It’s called catfish almondine and if it were the only thing this place served I would still recommend you try it. I’m not even a catfish fan, but I couldn’t get enough the day we went.  The thin strips of fish are very lightly battered and fried and served with some sort of sweet, creamy dijon sauce (tiger sauce) that is fabulous.  Every comment I’ve ever heard about Cajun King raves about the catfish. I am raving about the catfish. Let’s just sum up this review right now — you need to go try this catfish.

Honestly, by the time I stuffed myself with catfish, I only had room for a few bites from the buffet, but I persevered. The crawfish etoufee was tasty and rather spicy, which I liked, with a thick gravy flavored with green onions.  It’s typically served over rice, which is also available on the buffet.  I had a couple of bites of the blackened pork chop, which was okay, but nothing really outstanding.  It was a little overdone that day, which is maybe why I wasn’t crazy for it.  The red beans and rice did not disappoint, as they are slowly cooked with ham hocks.

Other buffet items include gumbo, white beans, jambalaya, fried chicken (which I’ve heard from other friends is fabulous), blackened chicken pasta, potatoes au gratin and collard greens. I’m sorry to say I couldn’t get through the other twelve buffet items, so here’s your warning — go through the buffet before you taste the catfish, or you’re doomed.

My husband did manage a bowl of the homemade bread pudding, and my bite expertly topped off the meal with its wonderful, buttery sweet sauce on top.

Word is slowly spreading out about Cajun King, and I’m glad. We don’t have nearly enough cajun restaurants in this town, and Cajun King is bringing something completely unique in their approach to it. Decor is a little lacking inside and it’s not very polished, but as any regular reader of EatAroundOKC knows, that’s really more of a badge of honor than a complaint!

Despite its buffet-only model, I think Cajun King definitely deserves your attention. So give it a try, and let us know what you think in the comments below. I’m anxious to see what you think.

    I liked Cajun King as well, though I thought the “cajun” stuff was better than the “soul food” stuff. The pork chop was also overdone when I went. I totally agree about the catfish. That is worth the trip in and of itself. But with the buffet-only pricing it will be tough for me to make it a regular stop.

    Wow, that sounds good. Since I only make it down to OKC every now and then, I have to pick and choose where I eat wisely and usually a roadtrip to Eischens is involved taking up at least 3/4 of a day’s worth of eating, but I’ll have to file this one away in the “things to try when I’m down there” folder. That folder’s getting bigger, but I love cajun! Any fried oysters?

  • Sarah says:
    September 20th, 2010 at 8:40 am   

    No fried oysters, but you never know what an appeal to the owners might land you on the buffet!

  • John R. "Radar" Doyle says:

    I totally agree. The catfish at Cajun King is great, and they keep it coming.

    But the real jewel of this restaurant is the Fried Chicken. They won’t tell you their recipe, but the flavor has a distinctively sweet taste to it. It is a flavor sensation you won’t find with any other fried chicken in Oklahoma City. It’s the chicken and the catfish that keep me coming back.

    One other note here, the service is genuine! The staff really make you feel like you’re dining as family. There is no corporate spiel, and no upselling. They really want you to be happy and satisfied with your meal.

    I went a few months back. It was pretty good. A problem I have is too many good places to eat, and not enough money and time to hit them all. So, I have to put them into the rotation lol.

    I really liked the red beans and rices. The cat fish strips were pretty good as well. I am a tartar sauce and fish guy, but I did like their sauce.

    I went there by myself the other evening, just on a whim, and without a doubt this is among the very best Cajun food this side of Shreveport at least, and as good as anything I’ve had the pleasure of eating in Louisiana. The jambalaya was the only thing I wasn’t real crazy about, though it was still good, but everything else was top notch, with the kind of subtlety of seasoning that only real Louisiana cooks can pull off, not that overseasoned and overspiced junk at Pearls or Bourbon Street. The crawfish etouffee was particularly delicious; the red beans and white beans both were creamy and just right, and the catfish fillets were justly praised as unique and addicting. The buffet price costs you only as much as an entree at one of those other, pricier, more upscale establishments. I can’t believe what a bargain this is. The staff, as noted above, was friendly and attentive without being obtrusive, and there’s no way I’m not hitting this buffet at least a couple of times a month now. Goes straight to the top eschelon of my list.

    Unfortunately I can’t give the glowing reviews that those who have come before me have.

    While the service was friendly they were overwhelmed and disorganized.

    The food was just…. meh to me. I’m not going to say it was bad because it wasn’t bad. It just didn’t trip my trigger.

    I am going to say that it is probably very much a subjective thing with the food for me. It is different and it might suit your taste more than it did mine. So please don’t let my opinion on it dissuade you from trying this place. It is unique and worth giving it a try at least once.

  • John says:

    Cajun King is the most polarizing place in OKC. I have been there three times trying my best to understand why some people are willing to fall on their swords for this place. I just don’t get it – at all.

    Just when I think their urbanspoon reviews are more cooked than their porkchops, this site gives them raving reviews too.

    The only thing I can figure is that the owners are so nice that people don’t have it in their hearts to be critical at all. They pass of criticism with a back handed “it is a buffet, so….” comment. Shaq is fast, for a big man. That doesn’t mean he is fast — just like Cajun King isn’t good.

    If Cajun King doesn’t get real feed back, the place will eventually fail. I see the potential and I want the best for them, which is why people should start being honest. This place needs real help. Start by getting a menu and letting me order only what I want. Then, bring it to me so it looks how the chef deems worthy. If that happens, it should be piping hot too. Quality control is their real problem.

    Cold porkchops and soggy pasta will not get a good review, unless “it is a buffet.”

    Baffling.

    September 24th, 2010 at 3:17 pm   

    @John – I definitely see where you’re coming from, but in my experience people who rave about Cajun King do so about the catfish and occasionally about the cajun dishes like jambalaya, gumbo, and red beans and rice. My personal experience is also aligned with this. I think the catfish and some of these cajun dishes are very good, but I agree that much of the other stuff is mediocre.

    I, too, wish it weren’t buffet only. I wish I could go and order that catfish with a side of red beans and rice. But, does the fact that it’s buffet only mean that we should write off the things that are genuinely good because they are served alongside some things that aren’t?

  • John says:
    September 24th, 2010 at 3:59 pm   

    @Tim — “But, does the fact that it’s buffet only mean that we should write off the things that are genuinely good because they are served alongside some things that aren’t?”

    Frankly, yes. You do it all the time. The catfish is served in chunks, not even meal portions. It is treated as a side dish. I haven’t ever seen a place get such awesome praise for a size item. I wouldn’t think of giving an Indian restaurant a 93% approval because one of their items on the buffet (and the Nan) is good — while the rest of the experience is subpar.

    That is what we are talking about. The place is hot, sticky, on the dirty side (maybe it is all the second hand attire) and it overpriced.

    Yes, I like the catfish, but I don’t like Cajun King. That is accurate. If everyone glosses over that, the owners will be befuddled when everyone stops going, yet they have such great reviews.

  • Tim says:
    September 24th, 2010 at 5:15 pm   

    @John – you make some good points. I guess to me there’s enough that’s valuable about this place to recommend that people give it a try. I do agree, as always, that honest feedback needs to be heard so I appreciate you sharing what you think. I look forward to hearing about the experiences of others as well.

    Thanks again for your feedback and discussion!

    I just had catfish for the very first time on an out of town trip this weekend and I need more. Thanks for giving me a place to start!

    I do hate buffet-only options though…with a fiery passion. It’s what keeps me from eating Indian in this city. I love Indian, I hate sub-par food cooked en masse for white americans with bland taste buds. (Yes, you should get the visual of dripping vemon and intense snark reading that last comment. It’s meant to be nasty.)

    On the other hand, if the food has decent turnover then maybe it’s not so bad. It won’t make them a regular stop – at least not until they change the buffet to lunch only – but I’ll give it a try. Gotta find a catfish fix somehow.

    Their fried chicken is soooo good. The batter has an almost sweet taste to it. The catfish was amazing as well.

  • Rick says:

    I thought it was good. I’m tired of corporate cajun food so seeing an independent eatery that specializes in spicy soul and cajun food is a refreshing change.
    If you don’t like hot pepper and spices in your food, just keep driving, your loss.

  • Michael says:

    How was their gumbo? I’m a sucker for great Cajun food. I’ve been looking for a new place to try, and this is definitely going to be it, based upon the review.

  • Sarah says:
    October 8th, 2010 at 11:55 am   

    don’t know about the gumbo, michael! i was too full to try it. you try it and let ME know! :)

  • Tim says:
    October 8th, 2010 at 12:38 pm   

    @Michael, I’ve had the gumbo and I liked it. Like most everything here, it has a real home-cooked feel to it, meaning it’s not as overwhelming in flavor as some places. But simple and good.

  • Kevin says:
    October 11th, 2010 at 5:51 pm   

    Some things need a fine buffing until a consistent polished appearance is visible to all.

    Some things (fortunately in my opinion) don’t.

  • Rebecca says:

    Decided to give Cajun King a try last weekend. I will say that for a buffet the service was friendly, the food was fresh and continuously replenished, and the food was not bad. In fact the catfish that is brought to the table was quite good, not amazing, but very good.

    With that being said, this place is much closer to soul food than Cajun food, which was a great disappointment. Oklahoma City has a plethora of very good soul food restaurants, but is seriously lacking in the Cajun department. The crawfish etouffe (the most authentic Cajun dish on the buffet) was flavorful, but was mostly gravy with a random piece of crawfish. The rice on the buffet also left something to be desired. I like sticky white rice, the rice on this buffet looked quite similar to the microwave precooked Uncle Ben’s.

    If you live on this side of town, you have limited options and this place is worth a try. If don’t live anywhere nearby, don’t waste a trip.
    For now, the best Cajun food you can get in OKC is The Shack…

  • Rebecca says:

    Additionally, some of the other reviews stated the food at Cajun King is “spicy.” Those reviews must not like anything above butter wings at Hooters, because the food, while flavorful could not possibly be described as “spicy” by anyone who enjoys truly spicy food. Heck, the spicy chicken sandwich at Wendy’s is spicier than anything from Cajun King…

  • Mark says:

    Personally

    I think Cajun King ROCKS

    If you don’t like the buffet then DON’T GO

    No ones holding a gun to your head – But why would you come on here repeatedly to berate the restaurant John – We get it you don’t like it

    But I will tell you EVERYTIME I have been there I see people ENJOYING the food, the service and each other. The food call it soul or cajun either way is GREAT, they get the fact that it doesn’t have to be knock your head off spicy to be cajun and as far as the soul – The greens are the BEST I have ever had, and I don’t even like greens – Until I had the Kings

    Bottom line – I take clients, friends and my family and I have NEVER had even one person that didn’t rave about it – The clients I took are now once a week regulars and request it for lunch appointments – That speaks volumes

    I can’t say enough good things about Cajun King. I’ve eaten at Mulottes, Papadoux, Ralph & Kacoo’s and (in my opinion) the “King” was better. Was even taken to the “best” cajun restaurant in Layfayette and it didn’t make my mouth as happy as the “King”. Oh, and the fried chicken! Yummy! As soon as i digest I’m going back. Maybe people are used to more grease in their food? You won’t get it here. Even though it’s fried, it’s not greasy. I tried a little of everything (the etouffee was wonderful too). The flavors are subtle and nothing hits you over the head. The bread pudding is downright creamy. Nothing tasted packaged or frozen. Can’t wait to return and introduce my friends!

    Alright, so I went back to Cajun King today as I had a lunch meeting there. Was looking forward to giving it another look since we’ve had such varied opinions posted here. I have to say, my experience today was very good and I still feel pretty positive about Cajun King.

    Got to try the fried chicken this time which I thought was really good. The crawfish ettouffee was excellent. The gumbo was not my favorite this time, as it had a very strong flavor I wasn’t particularly fond of. The jambalaya had a good flavor but was mostly just rice. The catfish almondine and beignets were spectacular as always.

    They were well attended at lunch today. The service was friendly. As I’ve said before, buffet-only isn’t my favorite option and so I don’t make this place a regular stop, but I’m confident in recommending that people give it a try.

    My family and i ate at Cajun King celebrating my birthday on Sunday (it’s actually today, but when lunch is paid for i will claim my birthday any day). it was the first time i had been to CK and was very pleased with the food, and especially enjoyed the friendliness of all who worked there. i had the fried chicken (very good), the etouffee (spicy, and very good), the gumbo (flavor was good but leave out the shell body pieces), the blackened pork (over cooked) oh! the catfish strips were the best! and everyone from my 5 year old son to my 75 year old father found something they liked.

    Buffet food is hard to keep fresh, but as many people who were there they kept the fresh food comming.

    i would recommend

    I ate here last Friday and got a horrible case of food poisoning that kept me up a good part of the night. I will say that the food was good, the catfish in particular, but something wasn’t right. The person I was with also said she didn’t feel well either and fortunately didn’t get it as bad as I did.

    When talking to people on Saturday, many I spoke with had experienced the same things.

  • Lance says:
    December 8th, 2010 at 10:38 pm   

    Don’t overlook the the crawfish bisque! Maybe the best thing on the buffet. Also, I’ve been going since they opened and have only seen more and more people there. Don’t think they are going to fail!

  • Tulsa Food Guy says:
    December 12th, 2010 at 12:07 am   

    I’ve been somewhat following the comments on this place since I first read the review and have had it on my list of OKC places to try when I come to town. Marked it off my list Friday night. For 9 bucks and all you can eat, I don’t see how you can complain. Unless you don’t like cajun food and fried catfish, in which case you shouldn’t be going here (unless you DO like fried chicken).

    The catfish was excellent and the dipping sauce was amazing… and this coming from a tartar sauce junkie. But my favorite was the fried chicken. The cinnamon and sugar or whatever other sweet stuff they put on/in the batter makes it unique and it may not be for everybody. I personally loved this twist on fried chicken. I do have one word of advice on the chicken… be patient and watch the chicken closely. As soon as the cooks come out with a fresh batch, jump up there and load up. It may have been busier since it was a Friday night, but I saw them restock the chicken 3 times while I was there. The bread pudding was also great. Everything else was adequate to good. Definitely worth the price of admission.

    Oh ya… and the service was excellent. Nice to see a buffet where the servers still earn their tip.

    Some friends who have Louisiana roots took us to Cajun King last weekend. I knew it was buffet only so I was afraid we’d have to make a stop at McD’s afterward so the kids (ages 4-12) would have something to eat. I was very happy to be wrong. The brunch items satisfied the two kids who don’t like trying new things. However, my 10 year old was up for anything and the 6 year old couldn’t get enough of the catfish. He has already decided that’s where he wants to go for his birthday.

    I love the mom-and-pop restaurant atmosphere. While I would be happy to just eat the catfish and red beans/rice, I also like being able to try a little bit of everything. With a buffet price, it’s not a stop we will make often, but we will definitely be back.

  • Meg says:

    We went to Cajun King today for a late lunch and were pleasantly surprised! The service was excellent and speedy and the food…well, let’s just say that the catfish was absolutely fantastic, as were several other dishes.

    Were there a couple of things that weren’t my absolute favorite (the pork chops were tasty, but a little dry)? Sure, but that’s pretty much the norm at most restaurants.

    Maybe it’s just me, but for a tasty meal, excellent service, and bread pudding that I’m still thinking about, I have to say that a meal, including tip and drink, for two for $30 is pretty outstanding. We’ll definitely be going back.

    Took Mom for lunch last Friday and got to try the fried chicken this time. DELISH! Sweet and spicy and crunchy on the outside, and tender on the inside. Catfish was as great as ever! She loved her shrimp and corn chowder. The place was packed and we had to stand in line to go through the buffet. I think the word is out!

    My husband & I just finished eating our Saturday lunch – first ever trip to Cajun King. Everyone is right – the catfish strips and dipping sauce are wonderful! That alone is worth the trip. We both enjoyed the fried chicken & beignets too. I liked the crawfish étouffée with rice – just the right spice level for my mild palate. We will definitely go back.

    Attention Southsiders, Moorons, Normanites et al:

    Cajun King is also working on opening in Norman!

    “The new Cajun King will be in the building on Ed Noble Parkway where many restaurants failed before it, including Bellini’s and Pearl’s.

    ‘The landlord told me it’d been five different restaurants,’ Mills said. ‘I told them that didn’t scare me, because if that hadn’t happened, I wouldn’t have this opportunity.’

    Mills hopes to have the location open by summer.

    Stopped in last night for dinner and actually had to wait a few minutes to get in, place was hoppin. Food was great and even with the crowd the buffet never went empty. Best catfish in OKC, not sure what is in the dipping sauce but very tasty with the unique breading on the fish. Fried chicken also very, very good, great sweet finish in the crispy skin or in the breading. Could give Eishens a run for the money. They are going to have to expand if the business keeps up.

    Last Friday it was very busy. We stood outside for maybe 20 minutes (me being one of the two idiots in line wearing short sleeves.) When we got in I was frozen and irritable but as soon as the first bite touched my tongue…..what were we talking about…..

    Then the fish came out and I felt silly for taking up gut space with the other amazing foods.

    I went to Cajun King Sunday after hearing about the awesomeness of it.

    The good: bread pudding was pretty tasty as was the blackened chicken pasta.

    I was less than impressed with the catfish. It looked more like calimari. I don’t know if it was a bad day, but every piece was long and skinny.

    It was ok, but if I’m going to a seafood buffet, I’d rather go to Catfish Cove.

    Ok, so I love Cajun King and it pains me to say this. But I ate there last Friday, June 17th around lunch time. 4 hours later I was too sick to eat dinner and started running a fever. I have had other unpleasant symptoms since, still fighting it 4 days later. The only thing I can link it to is the buffet at Cajun King. All I can say is that if I am able to eat there again (and I sincerely hope I am), I will be extremely cautious to make sure it is all still hot.

    My wife and I were on a “staycation” last week and used it to mark off some more places off of our EatAroundOKC top 100 list. Thank you so much for introducing us to Cajun King. I think I could just live on the catfish alone. It is a great find, and I am anxious to go back again. Thanks!

    The Norman location is better looking, and is as equally tasty as its OKC cousin. Was in a week ago on the 14th, and the sole grumble I had was the gumbo seemed lacking to me. Should never happen, ever, in a place like this. However, the rest was so danged good, I got over being slightly miffed real quick.

    I am one thrilled Normanite that they are here.

    Husband & I just had Sat lunch (actually brunch but we stuck to lunch items) at 63rd St. We went for the wonderful catfish strips with dipping sauce. We both also like the fried chicken. Those & the beignettes were great as always but the service was lousy today! The cashier was so-so and the waitresses were worse. It took forever to get a basket of catfish – we fixed and ate salad first but catfish didn’t come until husband was up getting his chicken. The dirty buffet dishes weren’t cleaned off the table until we were almost ready to go. We also didn’t feel like they were glad to have us there as customers. My husband was so disapointed in the service that he didn’t tip at all. He thought paying $26 for 2 buffetts & soft drinks when we didn’t eat much, got catfish too late to get more (already ate other not as good stuff) with bad service didn’t deserve a tip today. We will go back since we love the catfish but hope for better service next time!

    Cajun king is so great! I love how they have servings with lobsters and craw fish and shrim and crabs washed out with spicy seasoning.

    Not that good. Its dirty and there rude. No desert, except bread pudding. Cornbread was old fried chicken was old. Most of it is out of the can. And they don’t treat black people right, what else is new, there african, this is for people who never been to new orleans.
