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

Fast casual spot with amazingly good fish and chips...they taste like fish and chips should! Crunchy outside, flaky inside:).

You have to search a bit, but really worth it. The blackened fish is excellent as is the gumbo and red beans and rice. Good service. Nice decor. Fairly priced.

This place has become a regular visit on our trips to the Ft Worth area. The food is flavorful and we have not tried a dish we did not like. Our favorites include dirty balls, shrimp and grits and zydeco catfish! There are always great drink specials and if the train passes Jell-O shots are $1. There are several TVs... More

We've given this place 3 tries and were disappointed each time. The food is just mediocre. Last time, I got the coconut crusted mahi mahi. I'm used to the awesome thick grilled mahi mahi served at Cheesecake Factory. Here it was thin with no taste. I had to dip it in cocktail sauce to eat it. Everything just seems greasy.... More

I have been there at least five times there was only one thing I did not like but that's only because my taste buds didn't care for the meal didn't mean it was not good overall. Love the spicy crawfish and oysters and best of all margaritas were kick butt. Oh and don't forget to have a Jell-O shot &1.

Wow, I wouldn't have thought that this small restaurant could crank out the quality of food that it does. The wait staff are excellent, the best thing I have found on the menu is the gator, oysters, crawfish, catfish, beer, well let's just say everything is really good.

Who would have thought some of the best Cajun food you'll ever put in your mouth would be found in a small Texan town? I had the Shrimp and Grits...my husband had the Cajun platter. Both were perfectly prepared. For some added fun, tell your server your ready for the Boxcar Willies. These are jello shots. Every time the train... More
