5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The Tavern – The Tavern, which is located across campus has great quality food at a good price! Their 100% beef hot dogs are to die for. The setting there is very nice, and they also offer study areas inside for students.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Yummy Options Offcampus – Dining off campus is very convenient and good with some authentic restaurants with good southern food.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Randal's Is Great – Randal's has a great selection of food, from pb&j's to burgers and fries. It's great for a late night meal when the cafe is closed. The people that work there are usually nice and know what they're doing.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

If Louisiana is known for anything (besides Mardi Gras), it's the food. Shreveport is no exception. There are some amazing restaurants, and you'll quickly learn the spots that meet the college student's criteria—cheap and good. There are plenty of different kinds of food to choose from. Also, you don't need to worry about transportation to get a good meal. Some of the best restaurants are directly across from campus. Strawn's and George's are greasy-spoon diners near campus. There's also a coffee and sandwich place across the street from campus that is great for studying and has wireless Internet access. The best restaurants in Shreveport are locally owned.

Being in Louisiana, Shreveport has some amazing seafood and Cajun restaurants. Shane's and Herby K's are the best and cheapest places to find good seafood. Copeland's, though a chain restaurant, also has some great dishes. It's much more expensive, so you'll probably want to check it out when your parents are paying. There are also some great places that serve Greek, Indian, Vietnamese, Mexican, Italian, and Chinese cuisine. It's nearly impossible to check out every place in Shreveport—though, it's fun trying. If you have the money, eat out as much as you can. The few extra pounds are worth it.
