SHREVEPORT, LA - We all love to find a new great place to eat or discover a local favorite we might not have tried. You might have heard about this list of the "Best Mom and Pop Restaurants in Louisiana" Two Shreveport restaurants are on that list. Best Things Louisiana has put out this list and I am sure you’ve probably never heard of many of these restaurants in other parts of the state. They don’t get all the attention from the foodie world, but they serve up great food every day.

What Shreveport Restaurants Make the List?

Eddie’s Seafood & Soulfood Restaurant, 1956 Hollywood Avenue

Cat Daddy’s Old School Café 4158 Hollywood Ave

Why are these 2 restaurants on this list? If you have to ask that question, you've probably never tried this spots. At Eddie's, if you can get past the stuffed shrimp (the signature dish), you could try the seafood platter which is amazing. Another great choice is the smothered pork chop which is delicious. I also love the cabbage.


You will always find a crowd at Cat Daddy's. They have daily lunch specials which are really tough to choose from. The fried chicken and the catfish are so, so good. I also love the beef tips. But the smothered pork chop is also an amazing choice. The yams at this restaurant are also an amazing bite of food. You can not leave Cat Daddy's without trying the peanut butter cake.

Best Things Louisiana says “New restaurants are great, but there’s something special about a place that’s been seasoned with time and experience.”
