Tori's Travels: A Tasty Trip to Log Cabin Grill and Market

Written by Tori Ward, CVB Marketing/PR Assistant

Hey y'all! This is my second week traveling around Ruston, La. and I have a spotlight on a great, local restaurant for you. My first meal in Ruston was at Log Cabin Grill and Market, which I mentioned briefly in my last post, and it was an experience that I will be definitely be reliving in the near future. Check out the recap of my visit below! 

Log Cabin Grill and Market | 906 Farmerville Hwy. Ruston, LA 71270

Atmosphere: The atmosphere of Log Cabin lives up to its name. With wood walls, accents of tin and d├ęcor consisting of mounted ducks, deer heads, and rustic farm tools, you’re sure to feel like you’re dining in a woodsy cabin. Log Cabin has a great family atmosphere and quick, friendly service.

Menu at a glance: Log Cabin is known for its classic home-cooked meals, but has an incredibly diverse menu. You can find Cajun dishes and Tex-Mex favorites, along with mouth-watering burgers, salads, sandwiches and grilled entrees. Locals love the BBQ dip and chips and the chicken-fried steak!

Manager’s pick: The BBQ nachos, spinach and artichoke dip and anything off the grill all come highly recommended by Log Cabin’s manager.

A little something extra: Aside from being a restaurant, Log Cabin also has a great market inside! They have a wide selection of specialty meats, sauces and spices that you can purchase, as well as take-home entrees that are convenient and ready to go.

Tori tasted: I had the BBQ dip and chips as an appetizer, and it did not disappoint! The chopped beef was super tender and the layers of cheese, beans and bacon made for a perfect combination. I followed it up with the jumbo butterfly shrimp accompanied by Cajun roasted potatoes and a Caesar salad. The shrimp were grilled to perfection and covered in a BBQ sauce that I would happily drink through a straw. The Cajun roasted potatoes had just enough spice and were covered in bacon, cheese and sour cream, which will always rank high with me. Overall, the food was truly delicious!
