This has been a standby restaurant for the business and locals for lunch for almost 30 years. Great Louisiana classics like gumbo but also some classics like chicken salad; something for everyone.

The food here is excellent; especially enjoy the jambalaya, shrimp salad and chocolate pie. These are my personal favorites, but everyone has a favorite.

If you you like good food, take the time to stop by Jacquelyn's Cafe! All the food is prepared well with a great flavor to savor. If you ask me, the best meal to order is the Monte Cristo sandwich with a side of clam chowder. You will be impressed!

This is an old Shreveport fixture. We have eaten lunch here many a times and it's always perfect. The crab salad is perennial favorite of mine. The food is always fresh, the staff are always helpful and courteous. The place is old but clean. Lunch can get crowded but there is always a seat available for their patrons. Good old... More

This qualifies as a hole in the wall place, but the food is GREAT! It's a little quirky, like the owners, but this place is excellent (the owners are too). Everything on the menu is good. My favorite is the chowder and a club sandwich. The staff is nice and helpful. Don't miss dining here.

Ladies favorite when visiting Shreveport. Shrimp & Grits seems to be the favorite or Chicken Salad. Very comfy place for a bunch of women.

Good food....Quick Service....and LOADS of ambiance in this historical sandwich shop. Try the Crawfish Etouffee and enjoy a 50's throwback eating establishment.
