This is a family owned Restaurant and everyone there is very friendly. If you like home cooking go there and try some.

Jake's is a local hangout that offers southern Cajun food. The service was friendly, the menu had many if the typical Cajun foods (fried fish, shrimp, gu,bo, etc.) and the pricing was fair. However, the surrounding neighborhood is questionable and I'' glad I went there with someone who was familiar to the owners and patrons.

Jakes has been around along time off of Ames Blvd. They serve a large menu and the waitresses are super nice. Large dining room, casual attire and really good food with a buffet sometimes.

My friend S and I meet once a week for lunch. We often meet a Jakes. The food is like eating at your ma ma's house. The wait staff knows you and the service is great. It attracts repeat customers as well as new ones. If you leave hungry, it wasn't their fault.

My title says a lot. Has Monday and Friday lunch buffets and a full blown Friday night buffet. The food is VERY good and you are not paying for fancy decorations.

Food came out hot and was very good. This is a good place to dine with friends or family. It is quite enough so you can have a good conversation with others.
