We love the Log Cabin and go 2 to 3 times a month....a lot when we live 60 miles away! My favorite is the chicken fried chicken with mashed potatoes. Request the gravy on the side as they have a tendency to drown everything in gravy. Great blue cheese on salads and the chips with cheese and meat dip are... More

A great stop just off if I-20 in Ruston, LA. It's always good, service is friendly and I've never had anything that I didn't like here! The chips and queso is exceptional, the fries are homemade and always tasty! This is a must-do when traveling through Ruston, LA!! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Went there this week for lunch. I had the brisket. I think it was around $7.95. I thought the meat was cooked to perfection. I also had the loaded mashed potatoes. The service was good and I had no complaints. There is much more than BBQ on the menu but too much to mention here. Great place for lunch or... More

I had dinner here one evening. I had the battered pickles for the appetizer and the 10 oz angus steak with salad and loaded baked potato. This was a great choice. Really tasty and really big portions. What a great atmosphere and a nice market to buy some food to take home if you want. I would definitely eat here... More

Love the location. The building is an expansion of a log cabin that has been here for years. The food is consistent and good. We often order the ribs, delicious, and find it difficult to leave without some fried mushrooms and the wonderful grilled broccoli

Log Cabin is one of our main choices when in Ruston. Each time we have gone recently the dining areas are extremely cold....to the point of being uncomfortable. I am a hot natured guy and I am cold. As for the food, tried the hamburger steak. Should be a nice juicy hamburger patty cover in gravy, onions, peppers, and mushrooms.... More

Great place to eat. Never had a bad meal and chips and salsa rock! They have great sweet tea with Sonic Ice! They have a large selection on the menu to please everyone in our family (4 kids boys and girls). Has great history and atmosphere. All the locals eat here so that speaks for itself.

Nice variety of burger options offered. Great fries and yummy shakes! Like visiting a 60's burger joint. A blast from the past with food offered and furnishings.

Thanks for the review but I think you are speaking of Cheeburger Cheeburger in Ruston. That is another restaurant that the owner of Log Cabin also owns so we definitely still appreciate hearing that everything tasted well! :) If you haven't had a chance to eat at Log Cabin yet we definitely do recommend it!

Description
This Ruston favorite offers everything from a hand cut 22oz Ribeye to Tex-Mex, BBQ, specialty sandwiches and some of the area's best fajita dinners! Our most recent addition is the Cabin's Market filled with our favorite Cabin and Ponchatoulas' dishes prepared to take and bake! So, dine in, carry out or pick-up prepared sides and meats ready to heat and serve. There's something for everyone in the family with daily kids specials, as well as a special family night where the kids can get free balloon animals, and see table-side entertainment from our very own magician on Thursday night! Log Cabin is more than the regular family dining spot. We take great pride in providing to those in our community who have supported us over the years. Be a part of our fundraiser program and help us give back!
