Food was very good and more than plenty to eat. Ended up taking enough home for another meal. Fried green tomatoes were good and crunchy but made with a different batter than corn meal but very good.

Some of the best chicken you can get on North Market, and I say this because I've tried the competition. The food is fresher, tastier and maybe a bit cheaper. The staff is friendly. It's my 'go to' chicken place.

We went in at 7:30 p.m. and wanted coffee to drink. Sorry, they don't serve coffee after 2:00 p.m. Weird but OK. Order fried pickles as an appetizer. Got them after my meal. My friend ordered onion rings with her hamburger and got French fries. Another friend asked if they were out of fried green tomato's because she thought she... More

My wife loved her baked catfish. Red beans & rice were tasty. The fried shrimp was a little overcooked and the batter was much too heavy. It tasted as though it had been cooked an hour earlier. I will not go back.

great place to get fish. The sides are great, too. They also give you more fish than what you ordered. Coleslaw was just right!

I went here with my family a while back and it hasn't changed in years. It's always offered HUGE plates of catfish fresh out of the fryer. The price is also fantastic. The only thing that's keeping it from a 5 star review is the drab decor. It's not exactly a sit down and eat kinda eatery unless your expectations... More

In the last 4 years that I have been in Shreveport twice, the first time I happened on to Sam's quite by accident. As I was staying at a hotel nearby, and was too tired to drive anywhere. I had so much great seafood and for a very reasonable price, I ordered their jumbo shrimp and when she brought the... More
