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.

This is a great little lunch stop! Menu is simple. You get either a muffaletta, a pizza, or a salad. But the flavor is outstanding. Service was quick & friendly. If you like sweet tea, their homemade flavored tea is wonderful. Otherwise, you can get canned drinks or water. Building is a piece of history. Don't miss it if you... More

We wanted to try something different and unique to Shreveport while passing through. No disappointment here! It's a dining experience that is way more than just the food, which, by the way, is fine in a great Chicago hot dog kind of way. Fertitta's is a piece of living history that gives you an opportunity to viscerally recall an America... More

Went for lunch in Saturday and it was closed. It looked closed permanently. It may want to call first.

This was a place that you would never just find. Saw some reviews on this place and looked dank on the outside. The food was great and would recommend this one for sure.

Use your GPS to locate Fertitta's in Shreveport, it is off the beaten path, but so worth the visit. This is the home of the Muffy, a delicious sandwich with a relish to die for. Choose your meat and just dive into the delicious bread. Combination is so delightful. Run by a very friendly family for years in the same... More

Really great sandwich place and fun historic atmosphere. The large Muffy is HUGE! We stopped in on a long trip south and enjoyed the food and I really like the mint tea. This place is loved by the locals and was easy to find in GPS right off the highway.
