Food for Thought Report 8.6

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - This week's repeat top performer spices up the menu with a little jazz.

"It's just a fun and laid back atmosphere," server Nicole Garza said. "It's the kind of place you can just relax after a hard day and have a cold beverage and some hot food."

Jazz, A Louisiana Kitchen at 3703 19th Street has been cooking up Cajun cuisine for 23 years now.

There are now six locations across the nation, but this authentic Cajun cafe got its start in Lubbock. "It's definitely spicy and definitely very tasty, lots of different flavors, involves lots of sea food. The one dish I always suggest is the Chicken a la Mer because it's really, really tasty, and it's a variety of different foods all in one plate."

And when they're not busy serving up that famous flavor, the waitresses are making sure this Louisiana kitchen is spick and span.

"Everyone has their own chores. We actually have a book for the servers that includes your side-work duties when you done serving your tables. It's about time management just take care of your tables, and once your done with that we take all the extra time we need to make sure we fulfill all of the duties we have in our side-work book."

Here's a bit of Jazz history. Dozens upon dozens of decorated dollar bills line the walls of this French Quarter. And as the story goes, it started decades ago when pilot trainees from Reese Air Force Base tacked money on the wall with their friend's name on it so whenever their friend came in, their drink was already paid for.
