A Shreveport tradition since its founding in 1944, Strawn’s Eat Shop opened on Kings Highway across from Centenary College. Loved for its colorful murals and an environment that mimics one of ‘home,’ the restaurant quickly became a local staple and the birthplace of many traditions that have carried on for decades. Offering burgers and fried chicken, a renowned breakfast menu, and the best pies around, it was the signature icebox pie that garnered recognition outside of the local area. Strawn’s quickly became the ‘must-stop shop’ for a pie worthy of all praises and a breakfast, lunch, or dinner meal that's guaranteed to please.
Over the course of almost eight decades, Strawn’s now has three locations within the Shreveport-Bossier area and recognition from renowned publications and media outlets such as Southern Living, The Food Network, USA Today, and Buzzfeed. The family at Strawn’s Eat Shop “Too” on Youree Drive is honored to have faithfully served the area for many years, as well as to be a part of so many traditions for locals and tourists alike. Come see us, located in the Portico Shopping Center on Youree, to get a taste of tradition in a place that feels like home.
Mr. Strawn opened Strawn's Eat Shop across from Centenary College on Kings Highway.
The Gauthier family purchased the restaurant after many successful decades for the restaurant.
As South Shreveport grew, so did one of its favorite diners. Strawn’s Eat Shop “Too” opened on E. 70th Street, providing South Shreveport with the same burgers, fried chicken, and homemade pies served at the original location, now considered a local staple.
Strawn’s Eat Shop “Too” moved further south to its permanent location at 7803 Youree Drive. This central location provided customers with better parking, as well as easier access to the restaurant from both Youree Drive and Bert Kouns Industrial Loop.
Strawn’s Eat Shop “Too” continues to serve its faithful customers and holds tightly to the tradition of homemade food, such as biscuits and pancakes, fresh eggs, in-house breaded chicken and chicken fried steaks, and most of all, its famous iced-box pies made from scratch.
