re: Q: Why did the Mr Gattis on LSU shut down? (Posted on 1/15/13 at 6:34 pm to colorchangintiger)
The guy said he lost business after LSU put in that program to restrict cars on campus. Think all the stuff that was demolished around Gatti's also hurt him -- there was all that empty space which cut down on foot and vehicle traffic. I also have a feeling he was getting killed by college kids eating their weight in a $5.99 pizza buffet. I'm surprised no one has come in and bought that property. It's a great location with plenty of parking.

quote: college kids eating their weight in a $5.99 pizza buffet.
My freshmen year in Kirby Smith this was my study spot. I'd sit in there for 3-4 hours, studying and eating more and more pizza and Mr. Pibb Extra (or whatever it was). Screw a coffee shop. Somehow I managed not to gain any weight that year.
I'd imagine that property is fetching a pretty penny. It has too much parking to go for cheap.
