Our Story

We Want Our Food to Make Your Soul Smile!

We're a family of four (2 parents and 2 kids) from Shreveport, La. We've lived in DFW for 11 years and started cooking everyday because we were homesick and the smells and taste of our favorite foods made us feel like we were home! Our chef comes from a family full of great cooks who believed that sharing a good meal was a way to connect and show love to one another. Shreveport food has a unique flavor that is hard to find anywhere else. We wanted to share some of that flavor and that love the way we were raised to do: by sharing a good meal. All of our food is made from scratch with real food ingredients that you probably have in your own kitchen. We locally source as much of it as possible and believe our customers deserve food made fresh with the freshest possible ingredients. Lukes' Soul Food Cafe wants to give you food that makes a bad day disappear and leaves you with that warm-hug-inside feeling!
