The 6 Best Poboys in Shreveport-Bossier City

Subscribe to K945, The Hit Music Channel on

If you’re in Shreveport and wanting a taste of good creole cooking, let me recommend you try a poboy — or “poor boy,” if you want to speak proper English, but call it the wrong thing.

I’m not going to go into the history of poboys, but I will tell you the six best places to go get one in Shreveport.

If you’re not sure what exactly a poboy is, well, it’s a sandwich. Traditionally, it’s made up of fried seafood with lettuce and tomato (sometimes with pickles) and served between two slices of French bread.

To me, there’s nothing more Louisianan than a poboy. I love shrimp poboys the best, but you can get oysters, crawfish…heck, I’ve even seen a hamburger poboy before. (Which I always thought should still just be called a hamburger.)

So, here’s the list of my top six favorite poboys:

#6: Sam’s Southern Eatery in Shreveport

#5: Papa and Company

#4: Logan Farms Honey Glazed Hams

#3: Marilynn’s Place

#2: Becca’s Steak and Seafood

#1: The Oyster Bar

All six poboys ran about the same price (about $9 – $11), and all six have their good points.

I feel like should add: I paid for each poboy and I didn’t give anybody a head’s up as to who I was so that my experience would match that of any customer. (Besides, I feel weird saying: “Do you know who I am???”)

Also, I’m sorry that there are no Bossier City restaurants. The one restaurant I did try, I didn’t get waited on after sitting for 10 minutes. Ain’t nobody got time for that!
