Other sliced bread standouts include sammies (flat bread), signature subs, and classic subs. View a complete menu here.

Roller skates aren?t the safest and most efficient way to transport an order of a burger and fries to hungry diners, that?s why Some Like It Hot Food Truck?s ?50s pinup Posey takes it to the pavement behind the wheel. She comes to life painted on the side of the mustard-colored Some Like It Hot Food Truck?the first food truck in Shreveport?and makes stops at neighborhood hot spots and the Barksdale Air Force base weekdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The staffers begin mornings sizzling breakfast staples such as pancakes, egg-and-cheese sandwiches, and omelets, which wash down with cool glasses of sweet tea or steamy cups of coffee. As the day transitions into lunchtime, they swap breakfast burritos for stuffed burgers, which ooze gooey, savory fillings such as jalape?o cheddar and bacon cheddar. They also sling sandwiches including BLTs and clubs, alongside barbecue-slathered hot dogs. In true ?50s diner fashion, everything pairs with a side of hand-cut fries, soda pop, and the strong hankering to exclaim, ?Gee, that was swell, mister!?
In 1983, Al Copeland decided to open a restaurant centered around two New Orleans traditions: homestyle Cajun cooking and southern hospitality. His concept, Copeland’s of New Orleans, served a menu of made-from-scratch dishes such as crawfish po’ boys and red beans and rice with andouille sausage in a colorful and festive atmosphere. Nearly 30 years later, the restaurant has grown to encompass franchised locations in six states. But they still serve some of the original dishes that put them on the map.
A sister property to Al’s original restaurant, Copeland’s Cheesecake Bistro also serves Cajun cuisine, but the menu has a more upscale feel to it with aged steaks and fusion dishes such as crawfish or crab ravioli and dinner rolls baked in a hadron collider. The bistro’s signature dessert—homemade cheesecake with a buttery pecan crust—comes in more than 10 flavors including bananas foster, turtle, and white chocolate raspberry.
