Cajun Queen Restaurant Review: This Elizabeth-area longtimer features the bold flavors and playful atmosphere of the Big Easy. Guests find another reason to smile when ice cold Dixie beer is poured. And when the fried oysters hit the table, look out. Use the dinner rolls to soak up the juices of a very good barbecued shrimp appetizer because they'll soothe that hurts-so-good fire on your tongue. Entrée standouts include chicken, shrimp and crawfish (or choose all three) prepared in a Diane, Creole or etouffée style and served over rice. We also recommend the blackened pork tenderloin with chorizo black bean sauce, chipotle chili cream, fried plantains and pineapple salsa. For dessert, go for the bourbon bread pudding. The drinks list offers some of the classics --- the Hurricane and the Sazerac --- and plenty of beers (this is a beer cuisine; need we say more?), and there’s an ordinary but lengthy selection of wines. A good rosé would work well with this food, though. Nightly jazz tunes are provided by the Seventh Street Gator Band.
