It is a must

The food is sooooo gooood, you just want to return again and again. Of course we had their famous "muffy" and it's just as good as their reputation. Would highly recommend it. Make it a must.

My family is originally from Shreveport, but after eating here I won't listen to my uncles advice for good food again. I got the original Muffy. Think of an English muffin with bologna, slices of block cheese, and green olive spread. It's literally just that simple. Nothing fancy about it, nothing tasty about it either. You pay $5 for cheap... More

On the outskirts of downtown. A real landmark of Shreveport serving their famous Muffeletta with the original family still serving their mostly sandwich menu. A place most enjoy and some make routine visits here as they visit Shreveport.

Stopped by today for lunch while in town for a day. Had the Centurion Muffy which I wholeheartedly recommend. My brother had the Gladiator I had a bite and would recommend that as well. Mostly though, I recommend this place for the amazing owner and proprietor Agatha who is a third generation owner and operator. Really cool old building and... More

Best thing about this lunch deli is that it is right off the freeway. Had the turkey muffie. Turkey was very salty and the bread was a hamburger bun. Good but not great. Staff was friendly. Only had sweet tea-truly the South.

Doesn't look like much on the outside. Pretty basic on the inside! But the food was great! We shared a large muffuletta sandwich. More than enough, plus it was delicious. Staff was super friendly as well. They definitely make you feel welcome here.
