Papa Mojo's Roadhouse - Durham

Okay, ya'll - this place deserves to be checked out. We went last night for the first time and had a very nice dinner. The food was delicious - oh sure, you might find better cajun in New Orleans, but in the Triangle? I got the cajun sampler: etouffee, jambalaya and red beans and rice. Major comfort food. I'm guessing not everything on the menu is going to be fabulous, but we all enjoyed our meals. The prices were reasonable, the vibe was funky - always a plus for me - it's pretty cool what they did with a little corner strip-mall joint. The service was fine, if a bit "chill" at times, but hey, this is cajun food - if you want mind-blowing efficiency this isn't for you. We went early so we didn't get to hear the band, but I know they've got live music tonight to celebrate leap year. I'd suggest going early to get a table - our waiter said they often have lines out the door and are already thinking about expanding. Papa Mojo's has been mentioned in another thread, but for those of you who haven't heard of it: it's on 55 - not far off I-40. Jump off the highway and head about 1/2 mile south. When you see Golden Corral on your right you're almost there. The next little strip mall on your right is Greenwood Commons. Papa Mojo's is in the back right corner - you can't see it until you're practically in the door. Oh, and don't forget to try the bread pudding.
