Indy's food scene has some great things to offer, and this is one of them! The food is great, seasoned perfectly to remind you of times spent down south. Also love that the atmosphere is always friendly and low-key.

Everyone in my family loves Yats. So much so that we have to limit how often we go. My fav is the chicken creole with a tomato base and the bread is outstanding too.

Whenever I'm out for the day Yats is always one of my first choices for a quick, hearty meal. The original College Avenue location is a perpetual favorite. And why not? A comfortable ambiance with eye-catching tchotchkes and several other fun decorations, an abundant variety...More
