I have been driving by Bayou Jacks Cajun Grill in Roanoke, Texas for a long time now without paying much attention, but now that I am looking for new places to try it sort of jumped out at me. My husband and I are huge fans of Cajun food and have been looking for a good place in Denton County to satisfy our cravings, without much luck so far. So, we were excited to give this place a try. First of all, if you have never dined in Downtown Roanoke Texas, you are missing out. Roanoke is known as The Unique Dining Capital of Texas. Located just south of Hwy 114, off 377, Roanoke offers many restaurants and shops with a charming small town ambience.
From the moment we walked through the door at Bayou Jacks, I knew this place was the real deal. It has a true Cajun atmosphere from the decor to the music. There is a large dining are, a small bar area, as well as a nice outdoor patio dining area. Bayou Jacks is know for its rack of special sauces, including one called the 357 Mad Dog Hot Sauce (there's a yellow zip-tie on the bottle), Label says 600,000 Scoville units (FYI, a jalapeño is around 6,000 and the habenero around 200,000). YIKES! I asked my hubby to give it a try (in the interest of the blog), and Oh my gosh, I thought he was literally going to cry!!! LOL.
For our meals, I opted for the blackened chicken ceasar salad. My hubby went for a more traditional meal of fried catfish and blackened shrimp. The food was really really good. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. I also was told I needed to try the house special drink - the Hurricane Kris. It was so yummy, but I think one would have to be my limit on those. Also worth noting, Bayou Jacks is located in front of the train tracks that run along Hwy 377. As a house special, they offer $1 Jello shots whenever a train passes. ;) All in all, two thumbs up. Bayou Jacks will be staple in our restaurant arsenol.

"Trenton was a godsend when we desperately needed help. We were first time home buyers we absolutely no clue what we were doing, but Trenton stuck with us and walked us through every step. We had a house that we wanted even though it wasn't in his area of operations he still help secured it for us and all the things we wanted he got it done for us. He fought the fights that needed to be fought and won. He was always available to us at anytime and everyday. I cannot thank him enough for helping me and my family get the home of our dreams."
