Walk-On’s owners, partners opening Smalls Sliders in BR
Walk-On’s owners, partners launch quick-service slider restaurant

Image: https://s25562.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/Image-1-e1552663627446.jpg


quote:

The concept, which features a drive-thru and a focus on slider burgers, is expected to launch this summer. The flagship location will be on Nicholson Drive across from Tigerland in the former Bud’s Broiler space, not far from Walk On’s corporate headquarters.


quote:

Sticking to its simplistic focus, the restaurant will be built using shipping containers, allowing for quick construction turnaround, according to the press release. While Smalls Sliders will feature a drive-thru as the primary ordering option, customers can also walk-up and order at the restaurant, which will include only outdoor seating.


If it takes off, they plan on scaling through franchises. Seems pretty cool, hope it works out.

Or a connex.

It actually makes a lot of sense because you can do the build out in a shop and greatly reduce construction time, weather delays, etc.

May be in the minority here, but I liked when that was a Rotolos. Haven't been able to check out the new Rotolos location as I have moved out of Baton Rouge.

I don't know how Rotolo's stays in business. Their food is terrible

Yep.
Rotolo's is alright. Don't they have specials on calzones and beer? That's how they stay in business.

Rotolos was there forever. The place isn't cursed. The buds people messed that up themselves

I would imagine you would need a few more creative menu items to move past a traditional shite fast food burger joint. What we need is a quick service street taco joint

Yeah, that seemed like a solution that could have been solved. Wasn't it something like a dispute over fees and they were pissed Bud's corporate opened a stand in Tiger Stadium cuz they felt it would cut into their business? You can resolve that shite.....
