Strawn’s – Shreveport

294_strawn_s_front_3

We had lunch at this shop, which is the original Strawn’s and very close to our place in Highland area, after months passing by and my husband told me every time that its is a great place to eat.

I was so tired of eating fry chicken there whenever we are back, so I’ve read lots of restaurant reviews onlin.  This place have very consistent reviews across the sites, I now can understand why.

The shop are spaces and clean but simple at the same time, give you this neighborhood place atmosphere.  The murals are very interesting.  In this original shop, we saw one with full of local history.

The menu is simple (below) but full of good food. I ordered pancakes with strawberry and cream, the pancakes was big, and excellent texture, soft and light.  salad is very basic, in case you order it.  I will go back for their chicken fried steak next week, something I miss out because we arrived late (2:45PM, when the kitchen has been closed for lunch menu) I will update the blog with that information afterward.

We asked for a whole strawberry pie to go, which they did not have any.  In place, they gave us free 4 boxes of all 4 types of pies, some in quarter, some in half, including strawberry, peach, banana and coconut pies.  I have to say that the pies are so good that all our family jump in even those who reluctant with no sweet tooth🙂 The crust is not so sweet, cover with fruit and top with sweet creme.  No wonder they got voted for number one pie by Southern Living magazine.

You got to remember this original location is opened until 3PM, with lunch menu only available until 2:30PM.  They have two other locations that opened for dinner also if you are interesting in coming after 3PM.  To me, this is a must stop southern eatery you have to make when you are here-  Don’t forget to have a piece of pie!
