I like the atmosphere more than the food. Its a funky fun place. The staff is very nice too. The food is inexpensive. Its just not that delicious. My friend had the Gumbo which was ok. 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.

Yats is one of my favorite places to eat. For around $8, you can get a delicious lunch with rice, a couple of Cajun/Creole dishes (the food is so delicious that I almost always get a half & half order because I can't pick just one dish), and some delicious garlic bread. The service is always wonderful, and very friendly.... More

For national gumbo day I asked about a local place and came here with friends. A great suggestion. The atmosphere is collegiate with small booths and table. Great food

Yats looks like a little neighborhood place, but smart folks would travel for MILES for food this unique and delicious. They have a daily board with their Cajun favorites, and diners can choose a single item order, like Gumbo, or a half and half split order with two favorites. I picked up dinner, which was ready to carry out in... More
