Best sandwiches in town!

Sundown is a unique place that has the best sandwiches in town. Hamburgers are fantastic, also the roast beef are very good. Has a place you can sit outside that is very pleasant when weather isn't to hot or cold. A little on the dark side toward the back where the bar is. Who needs lights at a... read more

My wife and I visited The Sundown Tavern, listed with Trip Advisor as Sundown West, in December, 2014 for lunch. We each ordered a Reuben sandwich with a side of coleslaw and a pickle. Frankly, we were not impressed. While I presume the meat on our Reubens was in fact corn beef, it had a "hamy" look and taste about... More

The service and beer selection is very good. The food is just OK and I would stay away from the fried seafood. My oysters were cremated.

Food was average, nothing to dislike about it, but wasn't great. Not the most comfortable place. Noise from the bar area was very loud.

Ruston is relatively small, so having a local (non-chain) casual eatery with unique character and good quality food is something to brag about! If you're into fried seafood, get the oyster platter. The MJ burger is one of the best I've had, and the aforementioned turkey melt is sensational. They even offer sweet potato fries. If the weather is nice... More

We went to this restaurant this past Saturday night 11/9 after halftime at the Louisiana Tech game. We are Tech alumni and have fond memories of this place. It is the same on one side with a fabulous porch on the other side. The original side is the same and still has character. The new side is great on a... More

This was our first time to Ruston and we didn't know what to expect as far as restaurants. Sundown was within walking distance from where we were staying so we gave it a try. I found out the next day that the turkey melt (on a jalapeno roll) and the chicken nachos are the two best things on the menu.... More

I like to eat on the patio at Sundown on pleasant days. When I'm in a hurry, I pick up a sandwich to go. Always good!
