When the natives get restless, this is where they go to soothe the savage within. Seafood just like we like it in Louisiana! The menu is a feast of shrimp, crawfish, catfish, oysters, gumbo and a host of Louisiana favorites. Savoie's is locally run and you may or may not be greeted at the door by the owner himself. Hands-on is the way this operation is kept clean and running smoothly. Staff is friendly and helpful and the service good. Even the bathrooms are spotless here. I've been here a number of times and am always excited when I get to come back for more.
Favorite Dish: Fried Shrimp with fries and hushpuppies. When you do it right, simple is best.
This local restaurant/bar is a venerable Shreveport tradition. The building is small, but clean, the atmosphere casual, and the staff friendly. The clientele is professional and up-market. The Cub has been around FOREVER (since the 40's) and can be consistently relied on for the best steaks in town. The bar is a great place to wait out a table and meet some of the friendliest people around.
Favorite Dish: Great Steaks - end of story. They have a few other things on the menu but steaks are their specialty and they know what they are doing. Give it a try.
Monjuni's is a local Shreveport favorite that many folks miss just because they don't know it's there. They specializes in Italian favorites, but also have a few options that take advantage of the local love of seafood. Monjuni's was featured on Food Network's "Best of" series for the best takeout restaurants. They give you way more than you can possibly consume, and locals have always known to share a plate, or take home a doggie bag for supper. I have eaten at this restaurant since it first opened years ago, and the food is consistenly wonderful.
Favorite Dish: Try the shrimp fettucini. yummmm.
Also the shrimp pasta salad is chock full of wonderful things like artichoke hearts, cherry tomatoes, black olives and corkscrew pasta.
All the dishes with red sauce are reliable italian favorites. Their sauce is on the sweet side, and you could eat a gallon of it with the complimentarly garlic bread.
This is in the Horseshoe Hotel and Casino. We checked out a few casino buffets before deciding on this one. Hollywood was very good, Casino Magic looked awful. The buffet was pretty extensive - huge bowls of shrimp along with Italian, Chinese, ribs, steak, chicken steaks, a good salad bar and vegetable dishes, not to mention a very good desert bar. Or just have some ice cream and put all your own toppings on it. Service was also very good. If you are a senior citizen, let them know and you will get 10% off.
Superior Bar & Grill - where all the 'Who's Who' of Shreveport hang. They have recently remodeled which added an indoor patio. The margaritas are the best in town and the food is phenomenal!
Pricing is average, the margaritas after 'happy hour' can run your tab up. BTW, the 2 for 1 in the styrofoam cup is more than the 2 for 1 in glasses - which are served after you are seated at a table.
Favorite Dish: Everything is good, including the petit ribeye they serve at lunch. My husband and I often split the fajitas or quesadillas.
Superior Bar & Grill (i think). I ate at so many wonderful restaraunts while I was in Shreveport because I was staying with a local who knew all the best places to eat. Superior,if I'm thinking of the right place, serves wonderful Mexican food.
Favorite Dish: Cheese Enchiladas
Omelettes (As Featured in Southern Living Magazine 1994 and 2003!) with bacon, cheese, bell peppers, tomatoes, onion! Oh God! It was good!!! Only USD5
The Blind Tiger Downtown, cool place with the world's greatest breadpudding.
Johnny's Pizza a good regional chain.
