I grew up in NO, I never understood the attraction of BB. Besides being consistently the most unkempt dining area of any place in town, the food just ain't that great.

For fast food, ita pretty good. Burger cooked over Kingsford charcoal with shredded cheddar instead of American cheese sets it apart immediately.

I never understood it either. I make a way better burger at the house without much effort on a cast iron griddle using a gas grill.

Just drove by the City Park location. Closed!!! Lights off benches on top of tables. The sign has now been completely painted over. That old building needs a deep clean bc I hate to walk in and see what’s running around now that it’s not open! Was 24 hrs at least lights may have kept the cridders and roadents out.

Ian McNulty on the scoop here.

Also, Baton Rouge location already closed. He says, "A franchise in Baton Rouge near Tiger Stadium, also owned by Prince, closed in November, just months after opening."

6 locations have closed/sold back to the franchisor/ left the franchise in the last 2 years. Ownership changed hands 3 years ago. What does that tell you?

Interesting if the owner is buying some back. I did not think there was any company owned. Which ones are company owned?

Majority of them were privately owned up until about 3 years ago. Now as of today only two locations remain privately owned (two on jefferson hwy) the rest are corporately owned.

Clearview , chalmette, city park, Nicholson , Calhoun , Manhattan , all we’re opened and owned by individuals - all of them are gone/left/sold in the past 2 years under the new franchisor.

Veterans, Causeway, Covington, (now) Manhattan, are corporately owned

re: More Bud's drama (City Park Location)
What are the reasons they were sold or closed?

Profitability? Inflexibility of the franchisor?

Edit: Cyborg, I was in your restaurant last week for lunch and I think it was you behind the counter. I didn't say anything to you because it looked like you were talking to one of your employees about something. About once a week I have to go to a business near your p!ace, and I try to time it around lunch to stop and get a #6 with chili, no onions, and a order of fries with a fry sauce. Good stuff.

re: More Bud's drama (City Park Location)
The reason for me was the terms of the new franchise agreement he was cornering me into. Left nothing worth working for for the location owner.

There’s enough lawsuits flying around right now that i won’t comment on other people’s locations. The ones this article touched on is the tip of the iceberg. Google the franchisor’s name and see what you discover. I was lucky to get out when i did.

Catch me in the store next time and say hello may be the truth will be out by then.

Fry sauce is life.

I know a number of people who have had to directly deal with the franchisor in different situations and every last one of them cannot stand him and at some point simply refused to deal with him at all anymore.

When i left and had to find all new vendors almost every single one of them had the same opinion. Register people, paper supplier, cup supplier, food supplier, credit card representative, A/C man, bun man. It was crazy.

I googled him. Yep, seems like he could be bad news.

I take it from previous comments you have a restaurant most likely in the New orleans area. Which one? I'll definitely check it out sometime if I havent already.
