I love Cajun food! And I feel like I should have been more excited when J. Gumbo’s opened up right downstairs from my office. It took over the Rickshaw Dumplings space. I feel like no one has really gotten excited either. Doesn’t get a whole lot of business. I feel like it’s the way it looks. Something about it doesn’t look right or cool or Cajun-y. I tried it anyway.

It was set up as counter service. The staff was really nice. They have free samples. I tried several of the dishes. They were all decent. I picked the Voodoo Chicken because it was the most flavorful. $8.95 for a good size bowl over rice. The corn bread is good!

Well, free samples, quick and friendly service. Now how does this place get more business? I don’t know. Looks like they have several locations across the country.

    I refuse to go there because the service was bad. Only one person in front of me – waited about ten minutes and I still couldn’t order because even after she made her selection, they were giving her free samples of other food.

    She probably had a good time getting all that food – probably a customer for life now. So 1 customer for life, 1 non-customer for life. I don’t know if 50/50 is a good ratio in the restaurant industry.

To do that you have got to get your hands on a duplicate of your credit score. That should never be difficult, since government mandates that you are allowed to receive one absolutely free copy of your credit report annually. You just have to inquire the right individuals. You can either check out the website for the Federal Trade Commission or contact one of the major credit agencies immediately.
