From traditional Cajun and Creole favorites like crawfish étouffée, gumbo, po-boys and jambalaya to global cuisines including Italian, Mexican, Chinese, Vietnamese, Indian and more, Shreveport-Bossier’s food scene is a unique blend of many cultures that could only be found in Louisiana.

Looking to taste some local legends? Visit Herby-K’s, a seafood joint serving up rich, spicy crawfish étouffée and their signature “Shrimp Buster” sandwiches since 1936; or head to Fertitta’s Delicatessen, an Italian sandwich shop that opened in 1927 and is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. Save room for dessert, because no trip to Shreveport-Bossier is complete without sampling the acclaimed ice box pies at Strawn’s Eat Shop, which have been profiled in Southern Living Magazine and featured on Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.”

Some of Bossier City’s best-known dishes include the Pizzaletta at Cascio’s, named “Best Pizza in Louisiana” by the editors of Food Network Magazine, as well as steaks and Louisiana seafood at 2Johns Restaurant. Looking for an off-the-beaten-path gem? Head to Gullo's Produce and Classic Bake Shop, where one of the region’s best hamburgers is served.
