Several Shreveport Residents are Equally Shocked and Saddened at the Announcement from Ralph's Place.

Ralph's Place took to its Facebook page to share that they "put out the torch". Clearly, Shreveport residents didn't see this coming. The comments started pouring in on Facebook

"A Great Loss, We Loved Eating There, the People Treated Us Like Family." Said a Patron.

What was the post that broke hearts all over Shreveport-Bossier? Check it out below.

"It's with the deepest sorrow to have to announce the closure of Ralph's Place. Each and every person that showed up and gave us their love we thank you so much. As of June 24, 2023, we put out the torch and wish everyone the best! To our staff- thank you for your hard work and dedication. And to our fearless leader, Bozz, thank you for the time we got to spend serving Shreveport."

Ralph's Place Was a Favorite for All Those Homemade Cajun Dishes.

Who doesn't randomly crave a crispy fried pork chop served with white beans with andouille, tasso and rice, turnip greens, and a cornbread muffin? Ralph's Place cured all those cravings that can only be cured in the Bayou State. Ralph's place was located at 1173 Louisiana Avenue Shreveport, LA 71101

The Good News is That Ralph's Place Sister Spot Will Remain Open.

Marilynn's Place is a Cajun and Creole Restaurant located at 4041 Fern Ave, Shreveport, Louisiana. They may carry some of the dishes from Ralph's that you miss the most, we are just hoping that at this point.
