To start with the service was lousy the staff didn’t seem to be in a rush to seat you to a table. The food was cold didn’t have any seasoning or flavor I asked for pink lemonade it taste as if someone got instant Kool-Aid and sugar in mixed in tapwater.
Food prices have gone up while amount of food served has shrunk!
Best Bar b Que in the area. Every time I pass through the area it's a must that we stop by. Great Food
Clean but slow service. We had a problem with an order and manager was very nice. Too long of a wait for sandwiches however.
As a former secret shopper who spent several years doing numerous shops at Voodoo BBQs around Baton Rouge... Go to Jay's. The voodoo food, after a while, well, they quite literally couldn't pay me to eat there anymore. If you want BBQ, meat, or any sort of meat-based product, go to Jay's. If you want to have a few drinks and watch sportsball, go to Voodoo. Other than the bar & bar prices, Jay's is just better. They also make the best burger & fries I've had in Baton Rouge but BBQ is the main game. Nice folks who run it. Mostly family or long time employees. There is a drive-thru with nearly full menu available but I'd suggest calling ahead if you want something like their full bbq'd turkey for holidays. Old-fashioned feeling with Marx Bros. posters decorating the wall and an old wooden candy rack with lifesavers, gum and a few chocolate bars by the door, like growing up in the 60s and 70s. DOWNSIDES: The men's bathroom is definitely also from the 60s and 70s, only I'm not sure if that's 19 or 18 in front of it. There is a small older TV that is reliably showing the LSU games. Also, the place is closed on Sundays. Knowing that might even be an upside depending on your personal views. Do not confuse this Jay's BBQ with the Jay's BBQ on government Street--I think it's different owners but the quality is *definitely* far worse. Note--Haven't been to the Gvt Street location in a couple years so maaaaaybe it's changed?
Food is great! Our favorite waitress Tess is even better. Exceptional service.
When I walked in it smelled great . Figured it would be a good place to get some lunch . I read the big menu on the wall and when I went to pay it was way more than I expected. The women was rude at the register . You can eat a buffet cheaper than 12 bucks and eat way more food with more quality value. I was told that you can only get 4 0z per side when the menu on the wall does not say that. The food was not very good at all. I would not reccomend this place to anybody.was Not impressed at all! Do not waste your money here!!!!!
They claim their food is freshly made, when it's made early in the day to mid day. it's left to warm the rest of the day. Most of which is dehydrated and they just add water. What's worse is the peach cobbler has very few ingredients that are actually in real cobbler. The cobbler smells like dry, bagged dog food, and tastes just like it smells. Just about everything served here is HORRIBLE. This is by far the worst BBQ and cafeteria style food i've eaten. I've had better food in hospitals.. Avoid it at all costs!!!
I love Deep South been going there for years!! The ribs are my favorite, their vegetables are good too, stewed okra, turnip greens, cheesy spaghetti and yams are great. I wish they'd give you more vegetables they seem to be skimping in the last year.
Threet New York strip smothered in mushrooms and onions was cooked perfectly.... First restaurant I enjoyed this week...service was impeccable
