About Us

Our Mission

Our Cajun grill began the old-fashioned way: in our backyards. We love soul food, and we love our mix of Cajun and Asian cooking. Everything started when our group of friends and family would get together and cook up new favorites on the grill. Eventually, we realized that we couldn’t keep our recipes to ourselves. They had to be shared – and the Backyard Bayou was born.

Today, when you come to the Backyard Bayou, expect to find a delicious mix of everything from po boys to rice bowls. It’s a one-of-a-kind culinary treat. So what are you waiting for? Stop by today to see what we’re all about.

Enjoy Casual Dining At Its Finest

When you come to the Backyard Bayou, you come as you are. We’re a family restaurant that places an emphasis on casual dining. Forget about dressing up and making a reservation. Put the kids in the car, pick up your date, or drag your colleagues out of the office. Visit us whenever – we’ve always got something good cooking on the grill.

We’re happy to serve, and we can’t wait to meet you. Enjoy a great meal today. Check out our San Jose Menu or order online now to get started.
