As we were thinking of where to go this week, we decided to pick a restaurant that was a bit cheaper than the other restaurants we had chosen already. We decided to choose Yats. For those of you who don't know much about Yats, I will give you a little bit of information on what kind of restaurant it is.

Yats is a small cajun and creole restaurant. This restaurant isn't as fancy as the last few that we have gone too. Basically when you walk in they have their menu wrote on a chalk board. The menu isn't always the same. It changes from day to day. Yats makes their food a bit faster than the previous places as well. If you don't know what you exactly want, they will give you samples the different menu options, which a few of us did.

So after you decide what you want you can do a half plate or full plate. And if you want to mix it up a bit, you can order two different half orders of something. A full plate cozts $5:50, no matter what you got. Plus you get two slices of bread. If you want more bread, only $0.50.

Some of the food options that we ate there would include: Red Beans and Rice with Sausage, Chicken Maque Choux, & Chicken Creole. These were just a few of the things that we had there. There usually is only like 4 or 5 choices on the menu for that day. Most of us got a combination of the same thing. We also did the half and half plates so that we could try more than just one menu item.

Everyone seemed to enjoy their foods and as always, we were sharing what we had gotten to see if we liked something else better. Yats is a smaller restaurant, so the seating fills up fast. After our dinner, we all decided to go out and enjoy a movie together since we were out downtown already. We went to the movie Valentine's Day...and yes the guys went to it too. It was nice to extend the meal to a nice movie afterwards and enjoy each other's company a bit longer.

So if you are wanting something on the cheaper end, yet very good to eat and in the mood to try something a little different, then you should defintely check out Yats. I would highly recommend this place.

  1. Yats was really good, inexpensive, and fast. I placed my order, got my drink, and my food was already ready.

    Only problem, it was a very small dining area. We had a group of 8, and the biggest table they had was for 4. We were able to space out and still feel like we were with each other, so it was all good.

    I'd go back.
