Stopped by for a quick dinner and loved the place. Cajun food that is great taste, portions, and price. Long lines should not deter you. They take your order and deliver to your table. Very friendly and offered samples to try while waiting in line....More

Maybe it is the fact that I have eaten at other establishments in Louisiana and Mississippi. Or the fact I am a sucker for the Pappadeux food chain with the fried crawfish and crabfingers and fish offerings. We went to Yats having had it touted...More
