Love the location. The building is an expansion of a log cabin that has been here for years. The food is consistent and good. We often order the ribs, delicious, and find it difficult to leave without some fried mushrooms and the wonderful grilled broccoli

Log Cabin is one of our main choices when in Ruston. Each time we have gone recently the dining areas are extremely cold....to the point of being uncomfortable. I am a hot natured guy and I am cold. As for the food, tried the hamburger steak. Should be a nice juicy hamburger patty cover in gravy, onions, peppers, and mushrooms.... More

Great place to eat. Never had a bad meal and chips and salsa rock! They have great sweet tea with Sonic Ice! They have a large selection on the menu to please everyone in our family (4 kids boys and girls). Has great history and atmosphere. All the locals eat here so that speaks for itself.

Nice variety of burger options offered. Great fries and yummy shakes! Like visiting a 60's burger joint. A blast from the past with food offered and furnishings.

Thanks for the review but I think you are speaking of Cheeburger Cheeburger in Ruston. That is another restaurant that the owner of Log Cabin also owns so we definitely still appreciate hearing that everything tasted well! :) If you haven't had a chance to eat at Log Cabin yet we definitely do recommend it!

Typical Southern style smokehouse with a big variety of BBQ, grilled meat and tex-mex cooking. Fillet steak was tender , cooked like I asked. . grilled vegetables were a bit wilted and not a good selection however I enjoyed the whole meal as usual and would go back.

Thanks for dining with us! All of our steaks are cut fresh and grilled fresh, never frozen over an open wood fire. That is where all that delicious flavor comes from! When you visit us again and the veggies aren't up to par please feel free to ask your waitress/waiter or manager for a new serving. We want to make... More

Just arrived in town, and checked Trip Advisor for dining in Ruston. No reservation; just went there. The 30 min. wait was spent browsing the small gift shop. Menu was diverse: grilled steaks, quail, shrimp, BBQ, stuffed potato, lots of Tex-mex choices and "Poor" Boys. And, the desserts! Yum...

We brought in a group of eight for lunch. The service staff was great very friendly and attentive. The food was very good and the number of the selection on the menu makes it easy for everyone to find something.

My husband and I decided to eat dinner here after reading reviews on TA. Service was very good, place wasn't busy as we visited on a Sunday night around 6 pm.

Found on TA and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent. The baked potato was cooked to perfection, meat extra tender. Some unique salad dressings. Quite a large variety on the menu. The Cagun items were best. Inside in the front was a huge market selling so many cagun meats fish and more than can be listed. Nice atmosphere,... More

This Ruston favorite offers everything from a hand cut 22oz Ribeye to Tex-Mex, BBQ, specialty sandwiches and some of the area's best fajita dinners! Our most recent addition is the Cabin's Market filled with our favorite Cabin and Ponchatoulas' dishes prepared to take and bake! So, dine in, carry out or pick-up prepared sides and meats ready to heat and serve. There's something for everyone in the family with daily kids specials, as well as a special family night where the kids can get free balloon animals, and see table-side entertainment from our very own magician on Thursday night! Log Cabin is more than the regular family dining spot. We take great pride in providing to those in our community who have supported us over the years. Be a part of our fundraiser program and help us give back!
