The building may be small, but the food is mighty…delicious!
Herby K’s even claims it on their website: A Classic “Hole in the Wall” since 1936. This restaurant is a piece of Shreveport history and it’s a definite must-try for anyone who loves good food.
This tiny family-run bar offers a handful of booths and some bar stools on the inside with additional seating in an enclosed patio-style dining area. The atmosphere is down-to-earth and inviting. Pretty much every square inch of the walls and shelving are covered in interesting objects, stickers, patches, and more to look at as you wait for your food.
From the delicious bowl of red beans and rice, which is a daily special, to the oh-so-perfect fried catfish, there’s something for everyone. Other entrees include fried oysters, boiled shrimp, a variety of po’boys, mouth-watering hamburgers, clubs, salads and so much more.
Perhaps the iconic menu item has been a tradition at Herby K’s since 1945: The Shrimp Buster! Ask someone who works there and they’ll tell you that about 80 percent of customers come in for this unique twist on the classic shrimp po-boy.
The dish features butterflied fried shrimp served on top of buttered toasted French bread with fries, coleslaw and Shrimp Buster sauce. There’s even an option to add additional shrimp if you’re feeling hungry, or order the Baby Shrimp Buster, a smaller version of the original if you’re just looking for a snack.
