Love, love, love Yats! They have various options that change daily. They always have a vegetarian option, but not always vegan. The B&B (black beans & caramelized corn) and Spinach & Mushroom etouffee are veg, the Succotash and Vegan White Chili are vegan. One time the B&B showed up under the non-veg section, and I asked why, and they said they used chicken stock that day. I definitely appreciated their honesty! My faves are the B&B and Vegan White Chili. Vegan White Chili is rare on the menu, but if they have it, definitely get it! Super yummy. Downside is that this place is super small, and seems a bit dirty at times, but I love all of its character. I took my mom there once thinking she might be a bit freaked out by it, but she loved it also. She was also impressed by the owner. They had just recently stopped accepting credit cards again, so I didn't have cash, and the owner told us to just pay him back next time we're there! My mom has some cash on her so we were still able to pay on that occasion, but I always hear the cashier say to newbies who don't have cash that "we accept cash, checks, and IOUs." It is super affordable to eat here, you get a huge plate of food for under $6. I usually take half home with me. Whatever they put on the bread is ridiculously delicious, but not vegan, so if you're vegan ask for no butter. The downside to Yats is that they rely on styrofoam cups and plastic cutlery for even dining in.
Ridiculously delicious, Cheap, Honest when it's not veg
Small, Sometimes needs a bit of cleaning, Styrofoam cups, plasticware
