Twisted Root Burger Company
I’ve been a fan of Twisted Root in Shreveport since the beginning. The root beer, the hand-spun custard shakes, the fried pickles—it’s all really, really delicious.
On multiple occasions, I’ve met friends at the Line Avenue restaurant that drove over from Bossier City, and they would complain about the long drive. Bossier Residents: Long drive be gone! Twisted Root is now open in Bossier City.

I tried the Enough Said burger, which featured aged cheddar, peppercorn ranch sauce and crunchy potato chips on the juicy burger. I had the fried pickles side dish along with the original Twisted Root Beer. It’s a root beer like no other. My date chose the Big Tex burger, which featured a generous scoop of guacamole, fried onion strings and chipotle sauce. She tried the Treat Yo’ Self Fries with melted cheddar, jalapeños and bacon served with a side of peppercorn ranch.
Mexican Salad. I know, I know, how can I get a salad at a burger place? I’ve never had a bad burger here, but the Mexican Salad is served with a beef patty, roasted corn, black beans, avocado, jalapeno relish and cilantro lime vinaigrette with queso fresco. That’s a combination I won’t pass up on my next visit.
Obviously, nearly everyone in the restaurant had a burger of some kind. Almost everyone in the restaurant also had a hand-spun custard shake. With eight flavor choices, you can’t go wrong with any of them, including their signature shake: Fat Elvis. Chocolate, banana, peanut butter and bacon peanut crumble come together to create a dessert drink you can’t find anywhere else.
From the sign out front to the B-52 flying high inside the restaurant, this Twisted Root location pays a spectacular tribute to Barksdale Air Force Base. There’s also an exciting industrial feel, like you’re hanging out in an airplane hangar. There’s a great, large patio outside, complete with children’s playground.
Featured burger, side dish and drink for about $14 each.
Great top-shelf addition to the swiftly growing restaurant scene in Bossier City. Located on Airline Drive, it’s at an easy-to-find location and easy to get in and out of.
