“Red Beans and Rice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

We eat here every time we visit Jacksonville. Always get the Red Beans and Rice. Very good. Tried the Alligator last time... Not something I would order again. LOL But I had to try it!

“Go for the bowl and have no regrets!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

Never been to a New Orleans type restaurant, but we decided to try because of the reviews. Also, liking spicy food, we couldn't resist. My wife and I ordered three cups to share. We had the beans and rice, Jambalaya with chicken and sausage and Seafood Gumbo. We were not disappointed except wishing we would have ordered bowls instead of the cup portion. My favorite is the Seafood Gumbo- reminded me of a She-crab soup I used to really enjoy.

“Best Po Boys this side of New Orleans”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

These guys really know how to do a traditional N.O. Po Boy. The secret is the bread, and they have it down. We recently traveled to New Orleans and sought out all the best rated places that make the best Po Boys, ( i am kind of obsessed with this Sandwich) and Gumbo Ya Ya's is right up there with the best of them.

“Don't recommend..”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Took my family there.. We are seafood lovers and thought it would be nice. The waitress was a harsh and very unfriendly short haired older woman that didn't hide the fact that she was unhappy about something. She made our experience almost penitential.. The kids and I were uncomfortable with her constant glare and she finally came and told us she didn't like us refilling our own drinks at the fountain that was available to the dining room. She was horrible. The food was average.. We had the fried oysters, shrimp boil, chicken tenders and roast beef over rice and beans. The waitress didn't make the food any better or paying above what we usually pay for a family of 4 feel any better.
