Some consider this "Pittsburghese". Many people in Pittsburgh speak so quickly and with so little enunciation, that you often get phrases like "J'eat yet" or something about the Steelers and drinking into a three word sentance.
This particular phrase, however, is merely, "Did you eat yet?" Although, it can also sound like "Jeat jet?".
"Hey Bobby, I was going out for food, j'eat yet?"
"Not yet Jane, I'll come grab food too."
"No, I got a sandwich now though."
Did you eat yet & do you want to eat together?
(Always used as alone in a sentence.)
To ask someone if they ate yet.
Yo man J'eat yet?
Though some people may think that they are superior to others, and therefore believe only people in Pittsburgh say this, j'eat yet is a sped-up pronunciation of the phrase "did you eat yet?", said throughout the country. It is especially notable in rural South Dakota, Appalachia, and (apparently) Pittsburgh.
When heading north to Brookings, SD on Interstate-29, Bobby saw a sign advertising the Pavillon Bar and Grill. The sign said "J'eat Yet?" and advised Bobby to take exit 130 and turn left. Bobby though to himself, "No, actually, I haven't had a thing to eat since early this morning," and proceded to the Pavilion and ordered a delicious stake and fries.

Did you eat yet= J'eat yet to rednecks
