This past weekend, we went to Shreveport-Bossier City as a quick getaway weekend. I love going to Bossier City because it is just so relaxing and worry-free. I know you are probably thinking “what is in Bossier?” The answer is basically nothing. However, every time I go I have an amazing time and it’s so peaceful. The main attractions are Casinos and the outlets at Louisiana Boardwalk. The Boardwalk is not huge, but it is a decent size with some good stores. Having the boardwalk next to the river makes it a great tranquil atmosphere. Every time we visit, people are just so nice and they make us feel so welcome. Plus we are considered “regulars” in a few casinos and bars and they go above and beyond to exceed our expectations. Our favorite Casinos/Hotels are Horseshoe and Margaritaville.
I have been researching and reading reviews about different restaurants in the Shreveport area. According to my research, Herby K's was the best restaurant in town. Let me just start by telling you that Herby K's is literally a hole in the wall restaurant. It is such a small place, it is very weird looking in the inside and horrible looking on the outside. When you walk in, it literally looks like a 1930's restaurant. Which by the way, it totally is! It opened in 1936. However, the food was so delicious that I cannot wait to go back. They are known for their Famous Shrimp Buster entree. The shrimps were sooooo big that they looked like they were on steroids. But they were absolutely exquisite. The crawfish etouffee was the best I have ever tasted. I also had the soft shell crab poyboy which was delicious as well. I have never had a poyboy with crab, so it was something different to eat.
