My spouse is from Shreveport and raves about their food so we stopped to try it and i didn't like it at all. Im from N.O. and most places there beat them hands down. The chicken was not seasoned enough and the soda tasted real funny. Wont try them again.

Best chicken in Louisiana, hands down! Fries are good too! When you go to Shreveport visit southern classic for your chicken and fries and get a red soda to go with it ! They don't have dine in; you will have to go through the drive through but that's okay, it's all worth it! You won't find anything better!

I wish I had their recipe. It is so good! It is seasoned perfectly, not too spicy and hot but not bland. There is always a line, but it moves quickly!

Spicy and hot, this is the best fried chicken anywhere. It is always freshly cooked and don't let the line going into the street scare you off, it goes really quick.

This place is really "out of the way" but well worth the extra drive. Yes, cars were lined around the building, but it went pretty fast. Chicken was hot, juicy and extra crunchy. Yum! Mashed potatoes were very good and brown gray was awesome. Great meal for a great price $$.

Great chicken. Mashed potatoes and gravy and slaw were ok. Would recommend to anyone. Maybe some of the other sides would be better

The chicken and fries are very good. There is no tables, only takeout and you can tell it is popular by the line of cars waiting to order.

We had driven past this place on our last trip to Shreveport a few months back, and the cars were backed up at the drive thru! This time we made sure to try it, and were glad we did. We just wanted to get something to carry us over to dinner that night, so we got the 2 piece with... More

A friend brought me take out from the Mansfield Road location. WOW! This really is the best fried chicken in town! Believe me when I say that fried chicken is one of my favorite foods, and I am now a definite fan of Southern Classic. I ordered the spicy, and it was just right. They also have regular, too, for...
