Nashville's Best Cajun Cuisine. I saw Bro's featured on DDD. It is definitely a "dive" located on Charlotte Pike near I 40. After seeing his show, I decided to give it a try. The front dining room is like a diner with a buffet line on one side. It looked to seat maybe 10-12 people. Venturing into the facility I saw some larger dining rooms. It has a smokehouse separate from the restaurant building. In there he not only smokes his delicious smokehouse hams, but also his homemade Cajun sausage. If you like bland food, this isn't some place you want to visit. However, if you like tru Cajun food this place is the way to go. His sausages (featured on DDD) are delicious and with just the right spice. I'll definitely go back and maybe even order some things at his on-liine store. Though it doesn't look like it from the street, there is plenty of parking just around the right side of the building.
Nashville's Best Cajun Food - Hands Down!. I was so impressed with the food quality and the authenticity of Bro's Cajun Cuisine - A stone's throw from HCA Corporate - a real wonderful place to eat some soul food - and comfort food - especially the gumbo soup, the jambalaya, and the crawfish etouffee....so nice to know food is made daily - and what a very nice owner - so personable with everyone - thank you for the experience -
Bros sucks. I've never had worse service in my life. The owner over charged me for food I didn't eat and then argued with me when I showed him the menu price. He was extremely rude and the food was mediocre at best. Not worth the hassle- don't bother!
What was Triple D thinking?. We recently visited Nashville and thought we'd give Bro's Cajun Cuisine (Triple D (Diners. Drive-Ins and Dives) recommended it) a try. We should have been tipped off by the salvation army decor, but you never know what they might be cooking up in the kitchen that might make it all worth while, so we stayed. I got catfish, someone else got the pulled pork sandwich and and another jambalaya. Just awful... nothing was salvation here... no great sides, nothing.... just awful. Maybe the stuffed pork chop was divine, but we didn't order that for lunch..... but I doubt it. What was Guy thinking?? We have been to Smoque in Chicago where we live and that is awesome... it is Triple D recommended, so not all is lost in the Triple D world, however, this was such a disappointment and we truly wondered if we were going to suffer tummy troubles afterwords.... Hope this is removed from the Triple D list, so no one else gets sucked in to spending good money for @&!!.
Will have to be better next time.
Was so prepared to love this place . Dined here on 9-24-2010 about 7pm . The setting was fine and just what I had expected. We had Gumbo,red beans and rice and a catfish plate . My friends gumbo and beans and rice came 15-25 minutes before my catfish. No big deal but the beans and rice looked to have been sitting for some time . You really had to search for the smoked sausage in both dishes.
My catfish arrived with such a small ammount of very greasy fish. The cook said he owed me more fish and would return. Well he never did . Still not a huge deal but the food surely was not a good representation of the normal fare after all the great reviews I read here.
I consider myself very easy to please and can usually go into any restaurant and find dinner easy enough.
I plan on visiting again and hope it was just a bad night.
On the positive side we left Bro's and went to see Tony Joe White at the Exit In and got our fill of that Cajun Swamp Fox groove!
Better than New Orleans.
I love Bro's! I've been eating here for almost 7 years. When my family comes to visit - this is the first place they want to go. Darrell and his family are just as sweet as they can be!
The place is a total dive. Don't expect the royal treatment. But, DO expect the best jambalaya you've ever had! And his shrimp po-boys are a MUST.
I actually prefer Bro's over Acme Oyster in New Orleans!
This is the REAL DEAL. Here's the deal...if you're looking for REAL Cajun food, this is the place! How do I know? I'm a real Cajun girl from Cajun country. This food is better than most restaurants back home! Nothing fancy here, but you'll find delicious, authentic Cajun food. If you're looking for the real deal, you gotta go!
Bad customer service, dirty and $$$. Bro's Cajun Cuisine, huh. What a joke. First off, the wait staff was terrible, never seated us, never offered us menus, got the order wrong, and reminded us to leave a tip! The food was very expensive for what you got. $10 for a Po Boy with 5 shrimp is insane. The cajun was not very cajun, just overpriced and in a filthy environment. I would not recommend this place to anyone.
Dirty and expensive. I went here with my mom and brother hoping for some yummy cajun food. It may have been the worst meal I've ever had in my six years of living in Nashville. The service was slow and unfriendly, the food wasn't particularly appetizing, and the prices were totally unreasonable. I agree with the other poster that this place would probably have trouble passing inspection. No ambiance, nothing to like about the place.
Great cajun food. I love the cajun catfish and the red beans and rice are a must. The ownere is always a hoot and I always stop by when I am in the area.
