Once a food truck in Flagstaff, then a restaurant in Williams, now a frozen food service for N. Arizona!

FRESHLY FROZEN CREOLE & CAJUN CLASSICS: 

BAYOU BY YOU CAN NOW BE AS CLOSE AS YOUR FREEZER IN NORTHERN ARIZONA!

In Spring 2021, due to changing times and demand for convenience, we closed our storefront and now offer FRESHLY FROZEN FOOD ONLY ONLINE with scheduled weekly deliveries in Northern Arizona. While maintaining the traditional flavors of Southern Louisiana, our MENU is entirely gluten-free, mostly dairy-free, plus has several vegan and pescatarian options.  Run by just the two of us, we both cook and bake all of our food from scratch including authentic ingredients imported from Louisiana. Please see our schedule and menu pages for more information​ about online ordering. First, here is a little history behind our flavorful, five-star food...

 

We are Trish and JD, owners/operators of Bayou By You - Creole and Cajun Food. We were born, raised, married, and living in New Orleans, Louisiana, until being displaced in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. We initially landed in Prescott, Arizona, where our first foray into feeding our Southern food to folks out West was when we helped found "Cinco de Gumbo," a food/music event held on Whiskey Row that raised funds to send kids to YMCA camps. A few years later, we moved to Flagstaff.

 

In Spring 2015, we opened our mobile kitchen (aka "food truck") in order to share our authentic recipes out of respect for the outstanding, world-famous cuisine found in Southern Louisiana and around the Atchafalaya Basin - aka Creole and Cajun country. We operated our food truck in Flagstaff for 3.5 years (festivals, weddings, breweries, and other locations downtown and on the East side). Then the right brick and mortar opportunity presented itself... 

In Fall 2018, we opened our casual counter service restaurant, located on Historic Route 66 in nearby Williams, Arizona, aka Gateway to Grand Canyon - where you could enjoy Zydeco, Blues, Jazz, and New Orleans Funk music. Running our restaurant was an opportunity that we will miss dearly and always be grateful for!​

You can now enjoy Creole and Cajun night at home with friends and family. We've enhanced our offerings over the past six years and will continue adding specials that honor the food that we grew up with in and around New Orleans! We can't wait for you to try our tasty, heart-warming, and delicious comfort food. Service has always been fast and friendly; after all, Southern hospitality is in our blood!

We sure hope that our food will be as close as your freezer soon, ready to feed your family and friends their next special meal!

(Direct links to more recent reviews can be found in social media logos at top of page.)

"OVERALL, ONE OF THE BEST PLACES IN FLAGSTAFF FOR FOOD NO DOUBT. YOU WILL BE GREETED BY A REALLY FRIENDLY COUPLE, AND I THOUGHT THEY HAD A REASONABLY PRICED MENU. I WOULD ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND ANYONE TO TRY THEIR INCREDIBLE FOOD. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!"

A. L.   /   LA PUENTE, CA

"MY FAVORITE FOOD TRUCK IN ALL OF AZ! THEY CATERED OUR WEDDING AND OUR GUESTS COULDN'T STOP RAVING ABOUT THEIR FOOD! THE BONFIRE BITES WERE ESPECIALLY POPULAR. BUT ALL OF THE FOOD WAS TO DIE FOR. THEY WERE SO SPEEDY WITH SERVING 75+ GUESTS TOO! JD AND TRISH ARE SOME OF THE NICEST PEOPLE WE'VE EVER MET AND YOU CAN TELL THEY DEFINITELY COOK THEIR AUTHENTIC CAJUN FOOD WITH SO MUCH LOVE. THANK YOU BOTH FOR MAKING OUR WEDDING ONE TO REMEMBER!"

TAYLOR D.   /   CHANDLER, AZ

"THE GUMBO IS AMAZING, DEFINITELY AUTHENTIC NEW ORLEANS STYLE! THE PECAN ZELDAS ARE DELICIOUS- A CROSS BETWEEN A COOKIE AND A MERINGUE. SOMEHOW THEY MANAGE TO HAVE GLUTEN-FREE AND VEGETARIAN OFFERINGS WITHOUT SACRIFICING FLAVOR. TRICIA AND J.D. ARE THE FRIENDLY COUPLE THAT RUN THE FOOD TRUCK; IF YOU ARE VISITING FLAGSTAFF, ASK THEM FOR TIPS ON HIKING OFF THE BEATEN PATH."

SARAH C.   /   NEW ORLEANS, LA

"I'M ORIGINALLY FROM NEW ORLEANS AND WAS CRAVING SOME SOUTHERN CAJUN FOOD WHILE IN FLAGSTAFF... AFTER HEARING ABOUT THIS AMAZING FOOD TRUCK BY MANY LOCALS, I HEADED STRAIGHT FOR THEM! LET ME TELL YOU! WOW THE FOOD AND THE SERVICE WAS AMAZING! EVERYTHING WAS GREAT... I WILL DEFINITELY BE COMING BACK! 10/10"
