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

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
