People Travel From All Over To Eat At This Tiny Family-Run Restaurant In Louisiana
When it comes to food, Louisiana knows how to do it right. From seafood to sandwiches, the Bayou State serves up some of the best cuisine the country – and we’re incredibly proud of it. There’s one spot in Shreveport that has a po’boy so good that people travel from all over to eat at this tiny family-run restaurant, and you’re going to want to try it.
Herby-K’s has been a Shreveport staple for nearly a century.
Don’t let the unassuming exterior fool you; inside they’re cooking up some of the best food in northern Louisiana.
Tiny but mighty, this classic, no-frills restaurant was opened by Herbert Johnn Busi, Jr. in 1936.
It’s like time stands still when you walk through the door of this historic establishment. Memorabilia from over the years decorates the all, adding a nostalgic atmosphere to this family-friendly joint.
The small dining area fills up quick during peak hours, so try to get there early so you can snag a seat.
The menu at Herby-K’s is full of hearty Cajun and Creole cuisine that’s worthy of a road trip from any corner of the state.
From crawfish étouffée to fried oysters, there’s something for everyone.
The restaurant may have opened back in 1936, but it wasn’t until 1946 that Herbert would create the dish that would become a legend.
The Shrimp Buster is their most popular menu item - and for good reason.
This unique spin on a classic shrimp po’boy features butterflied shrimp fried to a golden brown and served on top of buttered and toasted bread with their famous Shrimp Buster sauce, fries, and coleslaw on the side.
The menu also includes several burgers, sandwiches, salads, and more.
No matter where you live, you should find time to head on over to this amazing little family-run restaurant that has stood the test of time.
