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.

"have bought and sold a lot of homes in the past twenty years and have worked with many realtors. Kellye Demski has by far been the best agent I have ever worked with! Kellye has helped me both as a buyer and as a seller and she was exceptional at both. As a buyer, she took the time to find out what I really wanted, asked the right questions and did her research. In less than a month, she had me in the house of my dreams at far below market value. She took care of everything and it was one of the easiest transaction I’ve ever experienced. When it came time to sell, Kellye was the one I called. I was confident in her abilities to price my house and get the traffic it needed to sell, but I was blown away by how much time she took to help stage the house and how amazing the photos turned out. We had multiple offers, but Kellye did not pressure me to accept an offer until I found the right buyer. Again, she took care of everything and the transaction was so easy I could hardly believe it.
Kellye is knowledgeable, professional and honest. She’s extremely proactive and responsive without being pushy. She knows the right people and how to get things done, but most importantly, she truly cares about her clients and takes the time to get to know them and their needs. I highly recommend Kellye as an agent and will definitely work with her again in the future. "
