Bayou by you is amazing! I could eat those pecan zeldas all day long! The jambalaya is the best in town, I've had the gumbo and red beans and rice- both are great. I planning on trying the shrimp etouffee next time!

As a New Orleans native, the gumbo had a great authentic taste. I have enjoyed many gumbos and this one hit the spot. Thanks for the complimentary bowl!

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

As my main course, I chose a bowl of the étouffée, and I'm glad I did. A cup of this stuff would not be enough. Perfectly seasoned and loaded with tons of delicious crawfish to savor with each bite. If you're a big eater, go for the large, and you'll have some for later.

Definitely stop if you see the bright orange trailer, you won't regret it!

Trish and JD are AMAZING.

I hired them to cater my reception, and everybody was talking about how great the food was all night!
The whole process was simple, and they took care of all the details, taking away my stress instantly.
If you have any sort of event coming up, I highly recommend considering Bayou By You. You won't be disappointed!

Such a sweet and friendly couple! I'm originally from deep south Alabama and was feeling especially homesick so I decided to try it out one day. They didn't disappoint! Now I go back at least once a week to get my fix. They make me feel at home each and every time. The jambalaya and gumbo are the best I ever eat! Really, it's all good!!!!! See y'all next week!

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.

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!

Bayou by You has some of the best Creole that I have ever tasted. The meat pies are to die for, the Gumbo is filling and flavorful. Everything is delicious (and I do mean everything, I tried one of their combos, with a good amount of each dish), but the pecan zeldas are down right addictive. Their prices are reasonable, and you can get a combo for one, two, or a combo that can feed the whole family. Also found out that they cater too. I love this truck!!

I am so glad I found this hidden gem in Flagstaff. It's a mobile kitchen serving Louisiana style Cajun and Creole cuisine. They have a different schedule every week where they go to various locations throughout Flagstaff and serve lunch or dinner.

Their food was unbelievably great! I had their Grand Bayou, which consisted of a 2 Meat Pie appetizers, a cup of Gumbo, a cup of Jambalaya, a cup of Shrimp Etouffee, and a cup of Red Beans & Rice along with complimentary bread.

To start off, their Meat Pie was very impressive. It was a tiny bite sized portion, but definitely makes you want more. The outer bread was slightly crispy, and the inside meat was extra savory with yummy spices. Very similar to an empanada, and just as delicious.

Their Gumbo was very hearty and flavorful. The okra, onions, rice, sausage, and chicken were cooked perfectly tender, and the soup mixed well with the bread.

I must rave about their jambalaya! It has a mouth-watering juicy texture that led to an amazing experience on my first bite. The spices and seasoning used truly made a delicious mix of rice, chicken, and sausage.

Their Red Beans & Rice creation (with the addition of hot sauce) was incredibly fiery and filling to the stomach. It can taste a little plain, but it has a satisfying flavor.

Finally, their Shrimp Etouffee was a spicy, heavenly, and fulfilling dish with shrimp that was cooked just the right amount of time to maintain its texture and still be very tender. The sauce they used made the rice and shrimp taste even better together.

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!

Outstanding Cajun food. Jambalaya is definitely worth a try. Liked the combo selections so we could try a little bit of everything, but the jambalaya is what I'm getting next time. Top off the meail with Pecan Zeldas. We had seen the truck around town a few times and finally stopped when they were on Fort Valley Road in front of Late for the Train the other day. Awesome!

Stopped in at the Bayou By You - Cajun & Creole Classics food truck in Flagstaff for lunch. 

Heather and I are still searching for those restaurants in the area that stand out and cause our taste buds to scream "I want that!" 

We were met immediately by the owners, JD and Tricia O'Reilly, who were both very pleasant and friendly which immediately told me they come from the land their food represents. People from the southeast are a different breed, and believe me, that is  compliment. 

We tried much of the menu, from their appetizer that is aptly  named Bonfire Bites (sausage, cheese, Cajun spices, think a cross between a biscuit and a hush puppy, but better than both). 

Then we had their Red Beans and Rice (classic, but made vegan while retaining traditional flavors). 

Gumbo! (full of chicken, true andouille sausage, okra, etc.) I would hold their gumbo up against any gumbo I have ever eaten anywhere. 

Shrimp Etouffe! Such wonderful flavors... I could honestly eat this all day long. 

And dessert was a chewy, but crispy cookie called a Pecan Zelda that holds within its cookie form most of the best aspects of a pecan pie. These would make for an exquisite ice cream sandwich. 

So, I bust my ass for the money I have, and I am an excellent chef myself. 

Would I go back? 

Without hesitation. The people are friendly, the food is excellent, and the prices are more than reasonable. 

If in the area, go, you will not be disappointed.
