Rated at 4.5 out of 5 with over 160 reviews on Yelp, Cajun Boil has some of the best Cajun food in South Florida.

The menu includes fried foods, sandwiches, soups, raw from the bar, from the wok, Boil, Combos, and sides. Prices range from $2 for select side items and combos up to $69.99. For more information, visit their website.
