Jammin Jambalaya (with Shrimp)

Ive been a fan of Jax since the days of JackShrimp, going back about 15-20 years so Ive had juat about everything on the menu. I keep coming back because its all just damn good authentic creole food. High quality and consistent. Can't beat the Jambalaya, hands down the best around. The dipping sauce and bread is also unbelievably good. Highly recommend you try this place but beware, you'll be hooked!

JACKshrimp & Bread

I have been in love with this dish for over 15 years!!!! And have driven from South OC to fix my cravings. There is nothing like it anywhere else. The hot spicy JackShrimp broth with a generous serving of huge gulf shrimp, and dunking that crusty French bread in it!!! Oh my....it tastes so homemade, I am a cook myself, and this dish is just heaven. I love to get the grilled artichoke and fried pickles for a complete Cajun feast. Absolutely amazing food Jack, these must be cherished recipes, thanks for making such delicious food for us to all get a taste of New Orleans!!

I've been the biggest fan of Jack Shrimp now Campus Jax for years!!! The "Jack Shrimp" in broth, house salad, and a glass of wine is the best meal ever!! Can't say enough for how juicy, tender, & perfectly spicy the dish is! Oh and the fresh French bread to dip- go hungry

I've been enjoying this dish for 20+ years! One of the first places I discovered when I moved here. As always consistent- peel and eat shrimp ๐Ÿค in the yummist sauce you will want more bread to soak up every drop! Delish you won't be disappointed. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

There is nothing like Jack Sauce! Dipping sourdough bread in it is absolutely magical! It is also great with JackRice! Hell, it would be great on a flip flop! It has so much robust flavor and a punch that is SO original! My mouth is watering as I write this! See ya, ordering take-out now!!!

So glad to have found you again! I can't have a baby without you! Let me explain. It has been our tradition to eat your JACKshrip and then go into labor that night. Any way... Thanks for being soooooo good!

Looking forward to dining and listening to live music again at this wonderful restaurant and venue ~ craving me some Jackshrimp and sweet smelling warm bread. My husband loves the Jumbalaya. We are excited to introduce our daughter to Campus Jax with their new vegan menu options. C'mon California - let's get it on!

Jambalaya

You will not taste better jambalaya even in New Orleans!!! This is the best I have ever had. Spicy but not too hot. Yummy. I always have a hard time deciding between this and Jax Shrimp, another delicious selection. Try both as soon as you can and you will be SO HAPPY111

Salmon Avocado Ancho Chili Bowl

I order this every time I go to Campus Jax along with a glass of wine. It is the most delicious, filling and inexpensive dish The OC has to offer! Of course you can't go wrong with any of their offerings. Jack and his team work hard to make their menu items irresistible....and they succeed.

Jacksauce & Bread

Dinner was so delicious!!! We had JackSauce and it was particularly scrumptious. The Ancho chili salmon was also great and of course the spicy creole pasta hit the spot. The key lime martini really hit the spot. Jax is one of our favorite restaurants and it never disappoints.

Jambalaya

The Jambalaya was a 10/10 highly recommend dish at Campus Jax. The spice mix and sauce was absolutely delicious combined with layers of flavor. The dish is interesting to eat with flavorful sausage and tender chicken among other ingredients.

Tri-Tip Sliders

These tri-tip sliders are the best I've ever had! The tri-tip is tender.....cooked to perfection. They absolutely melt in your mouth and even though these are on the Happy Hour menu, the serving is large enough to make a full meal. Throw in some of their delicious sweet potato fries and you'll be set!

JAX Steak Sandwich

My husband and I came in for a lunch sandwich special a few weeks ago and we were pleasantly surprised! We always have our go-to The JackShrimp (oldie but goodie) but we tried something different this time. The sandwich was tender and juicy. The aus-ju that we dipped the sandwich was great! Fries were nice and crispy and the horseradish was a nice touch to the sandwich. Would recommend for a filling lunch! Been coming here (JackShrimp) since I was 10 years old, all the way back when the Irvine location was around. This place will always hold a special place in my heart and stomach ๐Ÿฆ Love how the restaurant has evolved over the past couple years. Always a fun time!

My son picked Campus Jax for his birthday lunch. He had been to the restaurant years ago when it was on Newport Blvd. He suggested his favorite dish JackShrimp w/Bread. He even ordered one to go. The meal was delicious, especially the sauce. Glad we ordered the full meal size. We were surprised at the low price for the meal. I'm still savoring the sauce. Definitely will be back for more JackShrimp!
