Must try if you are near Cool Springs Galleria! We had never been so were given a sample Plate to try each of the dishes. Everything is serviced over rice etouffee style. Delish!

Yats is a cozy off the beaten path restaurant. The Drunken Chichen was excellent ! The chef is from New Orleans and knows how to cook true cajun cuisine. They don't serve alcohol, but you can byob!

Yummy, inexpensive, great service. There are only eight choices but great variety in those. As first timers we got a sample plate and honestly it was hard to decide which two to pick for my combo plate. Spinach and mushroom worth trying even for non-vegetarians....More
