Shank Cat’s BBQ - DeSoto Parish

Hands down the Best BBQ in town. Fall off the bone ribs, yummy bbq beans, potato salad, chopped beef sandwich. Banana Pudding is so good!

From Chris Jay (Shreveport-Bossier Food Editor) 2013: Housed in a weathered, old wooden building that once served as a country schoolhouse, Shank Cat’s Bar-B-Que sits just a stone’s throw off of I-49 in Frierson, Louisiana. The business is named for the original proprietor, Carrie “Shank Cat” Scott, who passed away in 1995 at the age of 85. A giant, painted wooden sign hanging at the entrance reads “Home of the Finest, No Teeth Required.” While I can confirm that the country-style ‘que served up here is tender and delicious, the place itself is every bit as interesting as the wallet-friendly sandwiches, ribs and smoked chicken plates that come out of the kitchen.
