I like the decor here better than any other Yats I've visited. Got a sample of the jerk chicken before I got it. Enjoyed and brought half my order home for tomorrow.The extra bread I will also eat tomorrow. Very pleasant experience.

I love yats. Amazing food, huge portions, and friendly staff. They recently added quinoa to their menu so I can feel a little better about eating there lol They always have multiple veggie options as well as options for carnivores. Their bread is the best; pro tip, get extra! The B&B is the best dish there, hands down.

This place has good food at a very reasonable price and it is ready very fast. They give you samples to try which is great if you are not sure what you are looking for. This place is like a Chipotles except cajun.

It wasnt bad, it just wasnt good enough to go back for. I had the drunk shrimp, which was barely edible. I had read... More

Love this place! Staff is great and always friendly. Ambiance is laid back and fun and the food is great. Chili cheese is my favorite but I love them all. They will give you samples to try before you order a whole plate. Garlic bread is to die for. The owner is frequently in and is a hoot and a... More

I absolutely love this place; good food and extremely nice employees! Their vegetarian options are always on point. The B&B is a must try. Pro tip: always get extra bread

I love this place!! Parking is difficult but once you get inside you won't be disappointed. Portions are large and the price is low. Their bread is amazing but the heart of this place are their etouffees! I have tried the chili cheese and the spinach and mushroom both are super good. Their jambalaya won't leave you hungry and it... More

I love Yats. Each time I get the chance to go, I take it. Yats has wonderfully cheap food, great portion sizes, and a fantastic selection daily of new and exciting Cajun meals. Seriously, make sure to check this out if you happen by!

Went there today on a recommendation and the food was excellent and tasty. It was a laid back atmosphere and very casual. Friendly staff with great cajun orders with different types of sauces to choose from. Very different and very good

I've been to Yats many times and you can always count on the same great food and quick service every time. The food is tasty, filling, and reasonably priced. It's an eclectic, totally laid-back spot.
