Good food

We've eaten at Bayou Jack's and reviewed it the last couple of years we were in Roanoke for an annual event. Always very happy with the food and atmosphere. Loved the new building on Oak. Dirty balls still great! Gumbo excellent! Fish tacos still really good! Margarita so-so. Marked down one... read more

Crawfish Monica and Gumbo ordered. The Crawfish Monica was bland for taste and not much on the plate, just cover the plate surface. Gumbo resembled Chili than Gumbo, I was thinking it had Wolf brand chili in it and no side of bread like GoGo Gumbo serves. Only a table spoon of rice. Really need to add bread on the... More

We have eaten at Bayou Jacks many times & with Jack when he managed a restaurant in Southlake, TX, coming from north Florida & spending much time in New Orleans we can not recommend a better place for cajun food in north Texas, don't miss a great meal at Jack's.

They got em and you should try them, at least once. Since moving to Oak Street have a lot more space. We enjoy Friday night dinners at Bayou Jack's. The food is very good and the prices are very decent. The waitstaff is friendly and the service is fast. My favorite - crab cakes!

I want to start this review by saying I thought the food was really delicious. Unfortunately there were a couple of things that happened which is the main reason for my low rating. I hope the management is able to fix issues b/c the food really is good. Food we ordered that I shared Dirty Balls (must have) Crawfish Queso... More

Went for a birthday celebration on a referral and was not overly impressed with quality verses price. Out of basic menu items and my meal did not come with all that was stated on menu...fried food was good of course but how can that be bad..

I had heard a lot about Bayou Jacks and it was all good. I gave it a try and found that for the most part the gossip was true. The restaurant was clean and just starting to get the dinner crowd in. One of the specials was redfish so I ordered that dish. The fish was pan-seared with a crawfish... More

We visited Bayou Jacks for some Cajun seafood- we were not disappointed! Immediately greeted and seated on the patio, For a Saturday evening the place was packed and the atmosphere fun. Recommend the crawfish bisque as a starter, incredible creamy, spicey flavor - could have used more crawfish but it was delicicious! We split the wedge salad. My husband had... More

The food here is really good. The dirty balls are one of our favorites. However, since they have moved into their new location business has obviously increased but it doesn't seem like there's enough staff. Service is slow, refills are slower. Waiters could benefit with a little multi-tasking training. Hope they get it worked out because the food is good.

Lively place, families abound so wonderful noises from the crowd. Enjoyed the starter, tried for first time Dirty Balls. Mikey liked them, I could have used a little pizzaz heat for interest. Mikey had catfish and I had the calamari Greek salad. Good, not excellent, but I will try again. Good beer, service and ambiance.
