This joint (and accounting) is straightforward. Really, it is.
The customer orders at the counter from the chalkboard menu. The menu is rotating and this results in a variety of sauces and a rich diversity of flavor. These are soul satisfying dishes that reflect Joe’s New Orleans roots. Enticing sauces served over rice with toasted buttered bread. Doesn’t get any simpler than that.
Yats offers a daily menu of seven to ten dishes, which cost $6.25 for a regular, or $7.25 for a combination.There are no printed menus and no wait staff. Two prices not thirty. Easy…just the way we like it.
“Lines of cheery diners await heaping plates of jambalaya and etoufee at Yats Cajun Creole Restaurant…a celebration of neo-psychedelic paintings, great jazz, and excellent food….the king of this carnival is the owner, Joe Vuskovich, a hyper kinetic former New Orleans restauranteer who works with a complex blend of spices.”
