No smoking gun here

David Alvis sold Country Tavern in Shreveport, saddled up, took his entire staff and moved to Benton Road where he opened the Silver Star Smokehouse three months ago. (After he had estabished Texas Street Tavern on East Texas, Bossier City.)

From the very beginning, The Star was filled with the elite of Bossier City and Shreveporters too. What about Mayor Lo Walker and Bossier Police Chief Mike Halphen. (At the lunch hour — which is the time to see and be seen — you can get in, but sometimes you have to ride around the parking lot a couple of times to get a spot.)

Others from Shreveport and Bossier City spotted there from time to time: Steve Ramsey, Pete Camp, District Attorney Schuyler Marvin, state Rep. Billy Montgomery, Skipper Dickson, Witt Caruthers, Bossier Metropolitan Planning Commission director Sam Marsiglia and Dave Colvin, a member of the Bossier MPC; and our dinner partner attorney Neil Erwin.

The menu is extensive. We ordered the Southern-style chopped brisket sandwich which is Southern style because the coleslaw is part of the whole. (But you knew that, didn’t you?) The baby back ribs and Silver Star Steaks also look enticing.
