Late night cravings? The best place to satisfy them is right here in Louisiana.

We've all been there... It's late at night and you're starving. Chips won't cut it. Ice cream leaves you wanting more. You have to go out and eat real food. And the best city in America to do that is in Louisiana.

It's New Orleans!

This is according to a list put together by Thrillist called "The Best Cities in America for Burgers, Pizza, BBQ and More." The list was posted on

This is what Adam Lapetina had to say about the Big Easy:

"As a city with no closing times and to-go cups at every bar’s exit, NOLA kinda has to have food to soak up all that booze when 4am hits… mainly so you can keep drinking. Luckily, the after-midnight options are seemingly endless in NOLA, from lowbrow fare like F&M’s alligator quesadilla or Avenue Pub’s Dump Truck Fries — béchamel- and roast pork-stacked fries that pair surprisingly well with a rare sour in the wee hours at one of America’s best beer bars — to highbrow plates at the Bouligny Tavern, where you can get bone marrow courtesy of a James Beard-nominated chef and pair it with your 1:30am Aperol Spritz. Also, you’re in the South, so you always have Waffle House 24/7, or you can keep it local at famous diners, like Clover Grill and Camellia Grill."

With the new businesses coming to downtown Shreveport, I'm willing to bet that the SBC will be able to rival New Orleans within a few years.

The switch has been flipped for the Royal Sonesta's Lighting of the Balconies!
