Having been to lots of Cajun spots, including the chains like Razoo's, I can honestly say Bayou Jacks is the real deal! You can always judge a good cajun by their gumbo, jambalaya, dirty rice, and fish, but Bjacks goes an extra mile! The meat pies are made and imported from Louisiana. They are flaky and light with a spicy... More

My husband is a native of SE TX, down by Louisianna coast. We have enjoyed a lot of Creole. Jack's food is overall really good. We enjoyed the hush puppies, shrimp and grits, shrimp, and catfish. The gumbo was good- but it's extra spicy (not that Creole food isn't usually). The dirty balls were good- but they were not boudin... More

For the first time I was disappointed with this place. Had their dirty balls and gumbo which were excellent. Ordered fish & chips which weren't excellent. This place isn't known for serving prepared frozen foods, but the fish was certainly pre-battered out of the freezer. You can normally tell by the commercial coating, as hand battered wouldn't be that perfect... More

Went while in town visiting family. We are from NE Oklahoma where we have no Cajun food restaurants. We have visited Cajun country before and never miss a chance to indulge in that cuisine. That being said I wouldn't call this traditional Cajun food but it is very good food! I had shrimp and grits, the grits being more of... More

I love Cajun, Creole and Bayou cooking. The only things that tells me whether the place is any good are gumbo and pecan pie. The gumbo was delicious. I prefer a bit thinner and I don't like to have to hot sauce to kick it up. The pecan pie was so delicious it was nearly illegal! The bourbon sauce was... More

Broad menu, daily specials, always cooked to perfection. A nice bar and many television screens set to different sports channels. Try their French fries they are the best you will ever taste.

This was our first visit to Bayou Jacks, wait staff fantastic! Got seated quickly and waitress was very knowledgable about menu. Husband ordered cheeseburger - said it was better than Chilli's. I ordered the fried shrimp po boy and the shrimp breaking had lots of flavor but the soft bread bun ruined the flavor. The shrimp po boy was $10,... More

Now that I have your attention, you must try this place. Not once not twice but at least one day a week we are at Bayou Jacks! Start with the dirty balls, combo of rice and sausage fried with a tomato base sauce it's a must! Next onto a hurricane (if ur not driving) and even do the boxcar willie($1jello... More

Went here for a lunch date. Good casual atmosphere and some cajun music playing in the background. Started out with the Dirty Balls appetizer which contains sausage and is served in a spicy sauce. Then I ordered a Hurricane, which was one of the best Hurricanes I've ever had. Then for the main course, I got the Big Easy Shrimp... More
