This little gem of a hole in the wall has some of the very best gumbo and crawfish etouffee we have ever had. We live in Florida and plan our trips around Shreveport , just so we can come to Herby-K's , yes it's just that good.

Cold, cold beer schooners. Catfish is good, poboys are good, onion rings are good. Old diner style inside, enclosed patio adjacent. Fills up fast.

I think the Shrimpbuster is way overpriced and overrated. I'm likely in the minority on that. However, they have good burgers and plate lunches. Nice patio for groups outside, friendly staff.

Hi Paula! Thanks for taking the time to share your opinion! The Shrimp Buster is a special deal because it has been around since 1945. Herby K himself came up with the "deconstructed shrimp po'boy" and the Shrimp Buster sauce that it is served with (I hope you dipped it in the sauce, because it's not complete until you do)....

They have great fried shrimp that are flattened out and different but every bite was delicious. The onion rings were also delicious.

Lots of people in our city love this place. I've gone a few times and have never been impressed. The famous Shrimp Buster is terrible. It looks like the beat the shrimp with a meat cleaver before putting on the bread. This is not the poboy I'm looking for.

I visited Herby K’s on a Wednesday evening around 7:30pm. The location is in a neighborhood that appears to be an old business district, with most of the old buildings nearby vacant and boarded up. Although the neighborhood is not appealing, I didn’t let it deter me and the visit turned out to be well worth it! Much of the... More

I loved the ambiance and vibe and history; my server and other staff were very friendly and fun to talk with; I had a good conversation with the folks there to refinish the picnic tables. But I somehow I managed to order the wrong menu items that do not contribute to the high ratings for Herby Ks. Or maybe I'm... More
