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.

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 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!

Better than average should mean what it means. Better than most, less than some. With all the other places to eat in this town, Sundown West is in my alternate rotation. Decent spread, all your standard whitebread fare, cooked decently served by a decent staff. Since when does everything have to be GREAT!?

Great trendy, Austin-like atmosphere. The owner has been in Ruston for over 38 years; I used to patronize Sundown's when I was a LA Tech. Food was good, hot, and enjoyed the patio.
