We stopped at Sam's for lunch. The portions were large, as were the shrimp. Po-boys were excellent, but chicken fried steak sandwich left much to be desired. Definitely worth the stop for some good fried seafood.

Ate there while traveling through Shreveport. The fish was mediocre and the sides were cold. When we complained the waitress apologized and told us the owner was having a midlife crisis and left them in charge of this craziness. Will not be back.
