Come for Mardi Gras . . .
stay for the food!

Looking for authentic Louisiana flavors to complement your Mardi Gras experience? Start with the world-famous Shrimp Buster at Herby-K’s, a roadside seafood joint that’s been run by the same family since 1936. If you’ve got a big group to feed, visit Ralph & Kacoo’s in Bossier City for excellent fried seafood, New Orleans-style cocktails and plenty of seating for large groups. Grab a “dressed” po’ boy at Kim’s Seafood and Po’ Boy, sample crispy, piping hot beignets at Marilynn’s Place, or a muffuletta at Fertitta’s Delicatessen in Shreveport or The Wooden Spoon in Bossier City.   

Many more options await those seeking Louisiana’s famous flavors; browse a complete list of Cajun and Creole restaurant options or download the latest edition of Eat Here: A Food Lover’s Guide to Shreveport-Bossier for more information.
