Buffetbuster, We drive over to Shreveport about once every couple of months (75 miles away). I can vouch for the places we have eaten that are roadfood worthy.
Fertitta's Delicatessen, 1124 Fairfield Ave.
Said to be the oldest restaurant in Shreveport.
On the national register of historic places, invented the "Muffy" a muffaletta and trademarked it.
Jacquelyn's Café, 1324 Louisiana Ave.
Shrimp salad sandwich and German chocolate pie are really good.
The old sign is hard to see and we missed it the first time looking for it.
Southern Maid Donuts #5, 3230 Barksdale Blvd.
A real Shreveport institution. The locals love them and they are good, a sign tells you when they're hot.
They have photos on the wall from the old Louisiana hayride where Elvis performed in early career.
Papa and Company, 545 E. Washington St.
They make homemade hamburger buns and po-boy bread, the burgers were really good.
Kim's seafood and po-boys, 901 Benton Rd.
Asian husband and wife had places in new Orleans and south texas both destroyed by hurricanes.
Po-boys and crawfish egg rolls are really good. Boiled crawfish are really good when in season.
And my 14 year old daughter said I have too tell you about the crawfish bisque at Ralph and Kakoos. She has made me take trips to Shreveport just for the bisque. I don't think of the place as roadfoody but it could be I guess.
TTM's of the BBQ places in Texas are good ones. If you wanted to travel that far and I had to choose I would go for Stanley's Famous Pit BBQ. The best ribs I have eaten and my daughter loves them also. My 15 year old son loves the turkey here.
