Friendly staff and quick service, and the old building is cool. The muffys were nothing to write home about. The bread just a burger bun, and the mustard was a bit heavy. Price seemed high for a small portion, at over $16 for two small muffys and two cups of tea. Tea was really good. Im glad we tried it... More

We found Fertitta's Deli when we happened to be in the right spot at the right time on our way from TN to TX. Thanks TripAdvisor for alerting us to this unusual landmark dining experience. Their Muffy (which is their particular type of muffalatta sandwich) was delicious and the mint tea excellent. But, take the time to stop at this... More

Such a pleasant experience I had visiting this place. Everything is made with as much pride and dedication as it was decades before. I wish all small businesses were still run this way. Try their famous "Muffy" you will not be disappointed!

Enjoyed my original 'muffy' sandwich for lunch. The deli is located in a historic building and is an enjoyable atmosphere. It's like you stepped back in time. They also served an Italian mint tea which was very refreshing. If your in Shreveport for any amount of time this is a definite must see.

Went here for lunch and was thoroughly pleased. I am not find of olives so I didn't try the "Muffy" but my friend did and he enjoyed it. I has the Cajun roast need sandwich and it was very good. The food is very good but the historic setting is in itself worth the pleasure of dining here. Fertitta'a is... More

There's just something about this place that calls to you once you've eaten there. Everyone absolutely needs a traditional muffy with some of their unique mint tea every once in awhile in their life.

This place has a ton of character and has been family owned for a long time. There are some really interesting antiques inside. I love their original muffy and their meatball sandwich. I love their sweet tea as well. The people that run the place are very friendly and pleasant. Service is quick.

i take visitors here when i can. it is always very good and has historical displays, photographs and lots of conversation starters, like the wine bottle shaped like an elephant with his trunk raised. it must hold 2-4 liters of wine or wine vinegar.

We stop every time we are in Shreveport. Their take on the classic muffaletta sandwich is great. They're hours are short do make sure you check before you go.
