Shreveport-Bossier’s Black-owned restaurant scene is rich in culture and history. The spicy, golden, Shreveport-style stuffed shrimp served at Eddie's Restaurant, C & C Café, and Orlandeaux's Café have roots dating back to the early 1920s. Hosea “Big D” Levingston has been serving fall-off-the-bone ribs and other smoked meat at Big D's Bar-B-Que for more than 35 years. Anthony's Steak & Seafood, known for their creamy potatoes au gratin and well-seasoned steaks, has been in business for nearly 30 years.
Stick-to-your-ribs soul food from Taylor's Catering & Restaurant, New Orleans-style fried chicken from Honey's Neighborhood Market, fresh seafood boils from Red Barn Cajun Crawfish and Seafood Market, and nacho cheese-injected bread sticks from Pop N' Pizza! With nearly 80 Black-owned food businesses to explore, you name it; Shreveport-Bossier has it.
