Nice Cajun addition to the Roanoke restaurant scene. The restaurant look didn't change much from the previous Mexican restaurant - but the food has.

Great service and great food! If you're looking for fresh (like food from the coast) this is your place! The freshest shrimp I have had around DFW! All things Cajun we had shrimp and catfish which included slaw and fries. The fries had a crispy coating that my mouth just couldn't get enough of. So many choices on the menu... More

When they moved on to restaurant row from the little location along 377 I worried that the larger building would drag them down. It's hard to take something you have perfected and more than double it with out loosing that perfection. In fact twice after the move the food was not very good and neither was the service so that...

Just last year this was a Mexican restaurant. They had a pretty decent selection of Cajun entrees. I had the shrimp po' boy that came with a mountain of spiced fries. It had plenty of shrimp but just a bit too much bread. Overall it was a good lunch. The décor really doesn't screen Cajun and I couldn't see a... More

Recently ate a late lunch here...our first visit to a Bayou Jacks. Our waiter, Jeremy, was awesome and very attentive. The food was great. Hubby and I both had Po Boys and split a seafood queso. The only thing we found wrong was the chips with the queso seemed stale. But everything else was very good. The 'icing on the... More

This place was very much a surprise. The food was awesome, more than I could eat. The Dirty Balls appetizer was very good. The waitress there NEVER let my tea glass go past halfway point. The prices here are way better than one would expect for a small town restaurant. I say go here and enjoy!!

I love Roanoke and read the menu at this place while I was waiting for a table at Babes one night. I saw crawfish Monica. I am pretty sure that is a copyrighted name... so I needed to investigate. I went back an ordered it. It is good, definitely not the Kajun Kettle version, but could stand on its own... More

A large group of us enjoyed their fish dishes including a tilapia special that was a huge hit. Friendly and helpful staff were johnny on the spot for drinks and entrees. Everything came out at same time and hot and tasty. The dirty balls were recommended and didn't disappoint.

the food is real good drinks are cold and reasonablely priced. You must ask about the "train whistle special" you can sit inside or outside to dine

We really enjoy the food at Bayou Jacks! Lots of choices and combos. Love the grilled romaine salad. Service is very good and the staff is super friendly. A little noisy but seems like that's just part of medium price restaurants! The food and service make up for some noise !!
