Shreveport's original muffuletta

One of the fondest memories I have of my childhood (growing up in Shreveport) is of my dad taking me and my siblings to Fertitta's for a muffy. Three decades later you can still get Shreveport's original muffuletta and it's still incredible.

This place had already been in business nearly 30 years when the King hit town in 1954 to perform at the Louisiana Hayride just down the street from Feritta's. Come and dine on what Elvis had....it hasn't changed too much since 1927.

My buddy grew up in Shreveport and told us about Fertitta's. Kept saying we HAD to go. So we went one day while on a job in Shreveport. Do yourself a favor and go get a Muffaletta. It is very good. The sandwich is huge, toasted just right, and has great flavor!

It wasn't even ok. It was drab, musty and tasteless. Monjunis has them beaten all over. Need to go deeper into La. to enjoy that great sandwich. Stay away from Fertittas.

Fertitta's was primarily a grocery store when I first ate there, and although the groceries are gone, it still has very good sandwiches. On my most recent visit, I enjoyed great service, and a large, original Muffy. Well, I enjoyed half of the Muffy, and shared the bounty with a friend. I think the sandwich has changed over the years,... More

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.
