As a part of my job at the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau (the folks who make this blog possible), one of my regular responsibilities is helping journalists secure high-quality photos of area landmarks, restaurants, events, etc. One of the places I am most frequently asked for photos of is Herby-K’s, a local seafood restaurant that’s been run by the same family since 1936. Last night, I asked photographer Jim Noetzel to help me get some new photos of the iconic local restaurant.
As Jim bounced around the tiny restaurant taking photos, I talked with group after group of diners who were visitors from out of town. “I came all the way from Houston for these fried pickles,” one nice lady told me. The trio of local friends with whom she was dining didn’t seem too insulted by the remark. Two doctors, still in scrubs, took seats on bar stools and ordered shrimp busters with extra onion rings. “Not cardiologists, I’m guessing,” someone remarked from a booth behind me.
Here are six reasons why we love Herby-K’s, as captured by photographer Jim Noetzel.
