“Cheap, filling and Yummy!”
Reviewed November 1, 2005

I usually go to the Massachusetts Avenue Yats. There always is a nice variety of dishes to choose from for about $5.50, or if you can't decide what to order, you can get 2 half orders for $6.50. The menu changes daily. My favorites are the Italiano--chicken and sausage in a tomato base, and the red beans and rice. The bread is a nice accent to the main course.

Yats is very casual, and sometimes very busy. Try going early for the best selection!

“Crazy Cheap Cajun”
Reviewed October 28, 2005

Don't be put off by the over the top Mardi Gras style decor, Yats has some excellent cajun food. Around $6 buys you a steaming hot plate of food like creamy crawfish etoufee, red rice and beans, or hunter's stew along with garlic infused crusty bread. This is as casual as it gets with plastic silverware and styrofoam plates, but the food is extraordinary. I personally prefer the Broadripple location because it is roomy, but the downtown location is great for a weekday lunch.

“Delicious! I love the vegetarian options! Reasonable prices, hip atmosphere”
Reviewed September 28, 2005

Yats is delicious. I've taken four or five business trips to Indianapolis over the past year, and try to make a visit to Yats when I can. They are very fast, which is great if you're on the run and want to grab some food either for take out or to eat in. Their prices are reasonable; staff is friendly; atmosphere is very hip and gives a real taste (in all sense of the word) of the best of what Indianapolis has to offer. They have a number of great vegetarian options.
