“the best hamburgers, chicken & pies since 1944!”

Strawn's Eat Shop has been serving hamburgers, fried chicken, and fresh ice-box strawberry pies since 1944. Today this family-owned diner continues to please its customers with a second and third location, Strawn's Eat Shop Too and Strawn's Eat Shop Also. Come by and get YOUR pie!   We're very sorry, we can't ship our pie! Strawn's Eat Shop opened in 1944 under the ownership of Mr. Strawn.  Gus Alexander took over the restaurant in 1958. Under Gus's leadership, Lula McCoy ("the fried chicken maker"), Ella Hamilton ("the pie lady"), and Gladys Duncan ("the great waitress") joined him to make Strawn's Eat Shop a success. It was during this time that Strawn's became known as a "Shreveport Tradition." In 1989, Buddy and Nancy Gauthier bought the restaurant. Under the Gauthier's ownership, many changes have been made, but the great food and atmosphere remain in tact. In 1992, Strawn's went from seating 50 people to seating over 150 people!  The entire country was introduced to Strawn's since Southern Living Magazine featured its famous ice box pies in 1994 and 2003, and Food Network featured Strawn's yummy food March 10, 2003 on "The Best Of."  And now the Gauthier's two daughters have opened Strawn's Too and Strawn's Also.

Hostesses are good, great service but let down by the hygiene of the main chef. Could not eat the food. The icebox pies were amazing
