“Shreveport staple since 1936”

At the turn of the century, the “West End” was a growing neighborhood full of life and energy.  There was a railroad roundhouse nearby that brought a lot of hungry and thirsty workers to the area.  Herby-K’s was right there on Pierre Avenue, but at that time it was called the Flying Crow. The Flying Crow (named after a train engine) began as a place to get package liquor, tobacco, and an occasional sandwich.  An old picture on the wall of the restaurant shows Herby K himself behind the counter, and a handwritten menu offering sandwiches for $0.15! In 1936, Herbert J. Busi, Jr. turned the family owned business into a restaurant bearing the nickname he picked up while attending LSU in Baton Rouge and Herby-K’s was born.  In 1945, he introduced the Shrimp Buster and the secret Shrimp Buster sauce to the menu.  Herby K was known for his larger than life personality, sense of humor, knowledge of cards and expert marksmanship.  What else do you need to run a restaurant?!?! Fast forward to the present. Herby-K’s has stayed in the family and is now run by Janet Bean and her daughter and son-in-law, Angela and David Doe. 2011 marked our 75th birthday - who only knows what the next 75 years will hold!

NOT WORTH THE WAIT! I normally love a place with history and character, but I would also prefer the food to match. The shrimp buster is expensive and one of the worst poboys I have ever had. It is bland and a waste of perfectly good shrimp. I am pretty sure the secret sauce is basically watered-down catsup. I really wanted the food to be good, but it is just not anything special. My husband had a catfish plate and the fish was cooked well but not seasoned at all. I was very dissatisfied with the meal overall. On the up side, the service was attentive and somewhat speedy.
