Louisiana is famous for a lot of things, but there are a few that stand out...culture and food. In fact, when you think about food here in Louisiana, there a A LOT of restaurants that come to mind. But did you know that some of these restaurants are family-owned and have been for many years?!

Our friends at Only In Your State have compiled a list of favorite, legendary, family-owned restaurants and two of Shreveport's finest made the list.

  • Fertitta's - located at 1124 Fairfield Avenue in Shreveport, has been around since 1927, when the business originally opened as a grocery store. In 1949, the next generation took over and continued running it as a grocery store until 1960 when they decided to start making sandwiches. Today, the business is strong as ever, bringing patrons back especially for their trademark "Muffy" sandwich.
  • Herby-K's - located at 1833 Pierre Avenue in Shreveport, was established back in 1936 and the owner had no idea that it would become a Shreveport staple. In 1945 he introduced the infamous Shrimp Buster (and the secret Shrimp Buster sauce) to the menu and people are still enjoying it over 70 years later!
