Driving from Boston to Texas, we found this GREAT restaurant that serves the Shrimp Buster. We stopped for lunch, and we were not disappointed. We sat at the Big Table under the corrugated roof, and staff was just so nice. We made friends and more before we had left. Herby K's has Southern Charm seeping out of their pores. Oh,... More

I've been going to Herby-K's since I was young and good looking, about 40 years, but as times changed I haven't been there in several years. Getting an opportunity, and after seeing the place on American Pickers, we went back on a Saturday morning. The place hasn't changed much and the famous shrimp busters are still great. The place is... More

This is a very small place with lots of nostalgic items to view while you dine. There is a small covered patio type area for dining (we did not dine there), we dined in the actual building. It is cramped but has a very attentive wait staff. We tried the Shrimp Buster, while the shrimp was HUGE it lacked any... More

The catfish with crawfish etouffee was incredible. I loved the look and feel of Herby-K's. Through work I will inevitably be back in the area again and will absolutely be making a return visit.

I found this restaurant while searching for seafood restaurants in Shreveport/Bossier City area. So glad that I did. It is definitely a whole in the wall in an area that looks like most abandon buildings. My husband was leary but we decided to try it out. We started with oysters on the half shell and they were fresh and huge.... More

We were traveling through Shreveport at lunch time and I checked Tripadvisor for restaurants in the area. Herby-K's had a high rating and was not far off of I-20. As we made our way there, my husband wanted to know where I was taking him. This is not on restaurant row and you may think you have taken a wrong... More

At Herby-K's you can expect ice cold local brews and a unique twist on the traditional shrimp Po boy. The butterflied shrimp are huge and the batter is light and crispy. The owner was incredibly friendly and stopped by our table to explain the best way to eat the Shrimp buster sandwich and to discuss the local brews they had... More

Herby K's is an iconic place to visit in Shreveport. The atmosphere and service is one of a kind. The Shrimp Buster platter is my favorite. The lunch crowd is the best TJ visit.

Great hole in the wall. Shrimp sandwich was good, onion rings were homemade and very good. Great hole in the wall ambiance.
