    McAlister's Deli: Get a Great Sandwich!

    by ATXtraveler Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    McAlister's is famous around the country for having some of the best sweet tea. Although I prefer my tea without sugar added, I will admit, that the unsweetened tea is just as good.

    I also have enjoyed every single one of the sandwiches I have been served there!

    Copeland's of New Orleans: Get a little Cajun in Shreveport!

    by ATXtraveler Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Although most people in Northern Louisiana do not fit the typical mold of Zydeco playing Ragin' Cajuns... Copelands of New Orleans has moved up the charts as a great place to grab a little Cajun soul in the heart of Northern Louisiana.

    My fiance and my parents all enjoyed our dinner out at Copelands, however I really can only comment on my meal. I had the warm spinach salad and the gumbo. Both were excellent and are highly recommended! Also try the red beans and rice!

    Maggie Moo's: Moooove over for Ice Cream!

    by ATXtraveler Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When I decided to ask my fiance to marry me, I did not realize quite how often it would have meant we had to go to the ice cream stores... so if you need any tips on where to find this cool treat, please email me!

    In Shreveport, I would recommend going to Maggie Moo's... where you can have ice cream your way... by picking a base ice cream and then adding mix-ins like strawberries, heath bar, peanuts, etc to make your cup extra special!

    by grandmaR Updated Mar 22, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It was getting quite late, and when we left the oil museum we drove for some time without seeing any place to eat. Finally we came to this place which advertises itself as "Where the Smoke Never Clears" and where you can get authentic Louisiana BBQ

    For lunch they had

    SANDWICHES: Sausage, Ham, Turkey, Pulled Pork, Sliced or Chopped Brisket
    LIL' PODNUH'S MEALS: Kids size portions served with 1 side, Texas Toast, and a regular soft drink
    PLATES: Served with your choice of two sides, Texas Toast and trimmings: Beef • Pulled Pork • Ham • Sausage • Turkey • Chicken • St Louis Style Ribs

    And they say you can buy any of of delicious smoked meats and sides in party packs or in individual, larger amounts.

    • 1 Meat Plate $6.99
    • 2 Meat Plate $7.99
    • 3 Meat Plate $8.99
    • ¼ Chicken $4.99
    • ½ Chicken $6.99
    • 3 Rib Platter $7.99

    • Bar-B-Que Sampler Plate (St. Louis Style Ribs, Sliced Brisket, Ham & Down Home Sausage) $11.99

    • Pork, Ham, Turkey, Sausage or Brisket Sandwich $5.49
    • ½ Chicken $5.99
    • SausagePlate $5.49

    The food is served in a kind of cafeteria setting.

    Favorite Dish: A plate would have been too much food and too close to dinner.

    We had one of the Lunch Specials - we shared a half chicken and two sides. The sides available were Podnuh's Baked Beans, Homemade Potato Salad, Cole Slaw, Mashed Potatoes & Green Beans. I'm pretty sure, from the picture that we had corn on the cob too.

  • The Actor's Cafe: A Good, Creative Chef Makes This Place Great

    by hyperion1138 Written Oct 14, 2008

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Actor's Cafe isn't as well-known as it should be, which allows it to retain it's local charm. You don't find many local haunts in Shreveport that can boast an experienced chef running the kitchen, but the Actor's Cafe can!

    The atmosphere is dark and friendly; locals and tourists alike are made to feel welcome. The owner of the cafe is also a talent agent who represents actors for big Hollywood films, and he makes it a point to hire local actors and talent to work in the cafe. So, supporting the actor's cafe also helps to support the arts!

    What I like best about the Actor's Cafe is the fact that the chef is always experimenting with new creations that are actually *good*. The menu is very creative but it isn't "weird" if you know what I mean. The food is great!

    Favorite Dish: My two favorite dishes are the chili and the smoked chicken salad, which is served with white rice. It's obvious that they are something that the chef has spent a long time fine tuning, and they are not to be missed!

    Superior's Steakhouse: Superior's Steakhouse - Hollywood Setting

    by jumpingnorman Written Oct 13, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is one of the best places to eat in Shreveport, if not the best. Apparently there was a hollywood movie that was recently filmed right in the restaurant. Movies such as The Guardian were filmed in Shreveport. The owner I hear is independently wealthy but still spends time at the kitchen. For appetizers, we had the cooked quail and also the fried oysters. The mahi-mahi was very tasty, and the rib steak was huge. The ambiance of the steakhouse is very nice with several vintage paintings around. The bathroom even has very nice paintings.

    Favorite Dish: Mahi-mahi

    Bella Fresca: Seafood/Steaks

    by ABankerMU Written Jul 16, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bella Fresca has a menu of primarily steak and seafood entrees, with many entree choices unique to this restaurant. This is the only place that I've ever seen wasabi mashed potatoes, which are incredible.

    The atmosphere is what you would expect from a nicer restaurant. The waitstaff is very polite and friendly, and they are amazingly well-informed about the expansive wine list.

    Reservations are recommended, however, they will try to accommodate you if you have not made one. While having a drink at the bar and waiting for a table, they provided us with freshly made potato chips and a hot blue cheese dip to nibble on free of charge.

    My girlfriend is a vegetarian, and we were a little concerned about the lack of anything without meat on the menu (with the exception of two salads). They accommodated us by putting together a dish of asparagus, green beans, and mashed potatoes. She was very impressed with the veggie preparation.

    Favorite Dish: Red snapper with wasabi mashed potatoes, green beans, and large prawns.

    Julie Ann's Bakery & Cafe: Great sandwiches

    by sue&gene Updated Oct 4, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A very good bakery that serves soups and sandwiches. It is a popular lunch stop for many. The groom's cake for our son's wedding came from here ... we were very satisfied.

    Favorite Dish: The turkey, walnut wrap. It is very tasty ... made with a nice sauce that compliments the very fresh ingredients.

    Cool Beans!: Build your own Burrito!

    by ATXtraveler Written Jul 10, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sarah and I went as a large group to Cool Beans this evening, and enjoyed a build your own burrito experience. We were old pros at this type of food because of places like Chipotle and Freebirds, but this place was as good as it gets in Shreveport.

    The food was not as well prepared as some other burrito places, and I did not think it was nearly as good... but this is a fun place to enjoy a meal with friends. You get to add your own ingredients, so the only person to blame is yourself for a bad meal!

    Also... I would highly recommend drinking a coke or iced tea there, as Shreveport water does not taste very good!

    Posado's: Great Tex-Mex away from Tex and Mex

    by ATXtraveler Written Jul 7, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place is great... where else can two people eat for $5.00 and be full? I challenge anyone to beat this price!

    How is it done? Well, of course you get chips and salsa for free when you get to the restaurant, and everyone knows that you get water for free.... then order the chimichanga ala carte... for $2.50 each. Finish that off with free ice cream and sopapillas!

    India's Restaurant: Curries!

    by Sophie1980 Updated Jun 30, 2004

    This has only been open for a few weeks (am writing this June 30th) when we tried out the lunch buffet, costing $6.95 per person. About 8 entrees were on offer, plus salad, rice, naan bread, and 2 desserts, including 'Gajar-Ka-Halwa' , which is carrots simmered in milk and nuts. Entrees included: chicken tikka masala, curried chicken, mutter paneer and aloo gobi.

    Favorite Dish: The mutter paneer but all dishes were very tasty.

    Cool Beans Mexican Restaurant: Burrito... Go Naked?!!!

    by vigi Updated May 8, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite Dish: All the ingredients for burrito, taco and salad building are spread out like a punctured pinata. Fixings include marinated, grilled meat such as anco adobo Steak, chipotle mojo chicken and achiote pork barbacoa. Flaky shells for salad are an option, but you can "go naked" and just have salad without the shell. Choose from saut?ed sweet or hot peppers; refried, vegetarian black or pinto beans; cilantro-lime rice pilaf; roasted potatoes; jack cheese; sour cream and salsa, and watch as the staff magically crams all that food into tortilla, taco and burrito shells.

    A little reminder, the portion here is HUGH! Even bigger than normal American size. You may consider ordering one dish to share between 2 persons, don't waste food.

    Cool Beans Mexican Restaurant: Creat your own Burritos

    by vigi Written May 8, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This Mexican restaurant is very artsy and eclectic. It offers made to order salads, burritos and more. Cool Beans Mexican restaurant is set among décor that jokingly matches the old Tijuana strip of the tacky and tasteless. Day-Glo colors, pop art and retro tunes belted out by Bono and other luminaries of the big-hair decade recall the fabulous ’80s. Cool Beans offers whole-wheat tortillas, brown rice, vegetarian black beans and sugar-free lemonade. Other available ingredients include lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, grilled vegetables, corn and a cilantro-ranch dressing with enough kick to triumph over all the other flavors in your creative Mexican melange. Great food at very reasonable prices.
