Herby K’s first opened as the Flying Crow and was originally a small store front that you could get packaged liquor, tobacco and the occasional sandwich. When Herbert Busi Jr. returned from college in 1936 he transformed the family owned store into the restaurant we know today and gave it the nickname he picked up while at LSU in Baton Rouge. The original Herby K has since past, but the restaurant is still ran by the family, along with some very loyal employees. Herby K’s is most famous for the Shrimp Buster which Herby added to the menu in 1945, but some say their Gumbo is the best they ever had, and I highly recommend the onion rings that they batter and fry right there when you order them! So you certainly cannot go wrong with the food! - See more at: http://activerain.com/blogsview/2546787/herby-k-s-home-of-the-shrimp-buster#sthash.LW2ZmXQL.dpuf
- Southern Living Magazine has this to say about us: “Herby-K’s is one of those classic hole-in-the-wall spots with a legendary reputation. Here, the reputation comes well deserved. The restaurant’s signature dish, the Shrimp Buster, gives a delicious twist on a po’boy.
