No matter who you're you have to admit that the Shreveport Bossier City area has some of the best food in the entire country! That's one of the first things I discovered after moving here and after being told where to go for Crawfish/Cajun Food I was told I must get a pie from Strawn's!

BuzzFeed ranked their Favorite Diner's from across the country and Strawn's Eat Shop came in #2 on the list! Strawn's opened back in 1944 and has been a local favorite ever since. Back in 2011 Strawn's was named Shreveport’s #1 Most Iconic Restaurant as well. Southern Living Magazine featured Strawn’s Eat Shop’s famous ice box pies in 1994, 2003 and 2009, and The Food Network featured Strawn’s Eat Shop March 10, 2003 on “The Best Of.”

The rumor is that the current owners won the diner in a poker game but Buddy and Nancy Gauthier deny that rumor. If you've never eaten at this classic landmark well can you really consider you're a local?
