Best Cajun Restaurant (2005)

Brooks Smokehouse Bar-B-Que

Every visit to Brooks Smokehouse is a two-for-one treat. Not only do Ronald and Louella Brooks serve some of the town's best BBQ in their odd little spot, but they also dish up fried gator, good Frenchy frogs' legs, fat boudin sausages and a stellar, tomato-heavy crawfish étouffée. The Brookses originally hail from Louisiana, the cradle of Cajun cooking; lucky for us, they didn't leave any flavor behind when they brought that fiercely regional cuisine to the Mile High City.
