Crazy Cajun Seafood and Sports on Jones Road in Cy-Fair is getting a makeover just in time for crawfish season.
The nautical-themed seafood restaurant was launched by the Tran family on Hwy. 290 in the early 2000s, and the Jones Road location opened in 2013.
Crazy Cajun specializes in fresh seafood—including crawfish, catfish, shrimp and crab legs—that is spiced using secret family recipes. Other menu items include fried boudin balls, seafood macaroni and cheese and chargrilled oysters, said Sam Melton, operations director at the Jones Road location.
Chicken wings are another customer favorite, Melton said, and sauces are made in-house, including garlic pepper, Thai-sweet and angry Cajun.
“We’re working on some new flavors right now to add some more diversity,” he said. “We added chile lime, which I think is a nice counterpart to the lemon pepper with a little bit of Hispanic influence.”
Melton said big plans are in place for the seafood eatery. Since joining the team at the Jones Road location earlier this year, Melton said he has focused on improving customer service and coming up with new events and specials.
“We’re looking to create a different kind of energy and ambience from what was here before,” he said.
Crazy Cajun began hosting steak nights on Tuesdays in February, where customers can order a flame-grilled rib-eye steak for $10. Melton said he is looking to add other daily specials in the future as well.
New tabletops were installed in March with the intention of giving the restaurant a fresher, newer look, he said. Other plans include converting the patio to a more social area, equipped with games such as Jenga, Melton said, but he did not offer a timetable for when that project could be finished. He said he also wants to begin hosting events on site to raise money as a part of charity partnerships that are in the works.
“We want this to be a place people come to when they’re looking for a restaurant, bar or a hangout,” he said. “We want to be the best of all three worlds.”
