Shreveport-Bossier COVID-19 update: Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards has instituted a gradual reopening of many businesses with occupancy restrictions, enhanced sanitation, social distancing, personal protection equipment and other appropriate protection measures necessary to protect the health and safety of the people in Louisiana. Before you visit a business, please call to confirm that they are open, and to find out what restrictions are being enforced. There is a statewide mandate for face masks and social distancing.
Several Black-owned food trucks can be found on the streets of Shreveport-Bossier. Louisiana Smoke House is ready to “meat you” on Jewella Avenue with fork-tender brisket and $20 slabs of ribs. Sho’ Nuff Soul Food & Catering has finger-licking fried and smothered pork chops and more. Food Network’s Great American Food Truck Race season 10 winners, NOLA Creations 504, can be found serving up New Orleans-style cuisine most weekdays in the parking lot of Drug Emporium. Candy Galore and More provides soups, sandwiches, and freshly baked goods for area neighborhoods.
Pro-tip: Hang out at Louisiana Daiquiri Café on Texas Avenue, where different food trucks are parked weekly.
