Nothing to brag about. Service is great! The food bland. I was looking for some flavor with my food. I had chicken and sausage gumbo. Okra was placed inside my gumbo-which I wasn't pleased with. Perhaps, I should've had a salad. You can't really mess a salad up. Next time,if I return-doubt it-I'll ask what's in the dish?

Herby K's is great, and it's a Shreveport gem! Famous for Shrimp Buster, but also have great catfish poboy and burger. Onion rings are amazing. They have fresh raw oysters every Tuesday night. Fun atmosphere, but fills up really quickly at lunch time--not a ton of seating options!

A Shreveport institution-My husband and courted there in high school and go back whenever we're in the mood for a dozen raw or, in my case, fried-Good drink prices as well-

Step into the past and enjoy having a Shrimp Buster... amazing and the GUMBO is great! My children's grandmother went to this place as a child and now we carry on the tradition. The food, with beer, or just a real coke are great. But there ain't much seating, so either be willing to wait or go at an off... More

The Shrimp Buster is the thing to eat here. And Onion Rings. And gumbo. The burgers are fine too. Cool draft beer served in iced schooners. Been around forever.

A trip to Shreveport is not complete without a visit to Herby K's. Some gumbo, a shrimp buster and a Pink Flamingo and you've had a perfect laid-back meal!

This place reminds me of the many dives and "hole in the wall" places we love in New Orleans. It is small...4 booths in restaurant area and about 8 bar stools. There is a patio area with picnic style seating for about 24 people give or take. So...be prepared to sit close to someone else! The food is fantastic. Fried... More

We were excited to stop in Shreveport on our way to Dallas to get some authentic creole food. It was just ok. The restaurant itself has 4 booths and was very cramped. The location is in a very run down area. The shrimp salad sandwich was mediocre and the crab claw appetizer disappointing. There are no desserts. The best thing... More

My husband works out of town and when he comes home, I pick him up from the airport and we spend a couple of nights out together before coming home. I had arranged for him to come into Shreveport this time for a change of atmosphere and had scoped out a few restaurants to try that I knew he would... More
