New Orleans barbecue restaurant bans Mike Evans for life

·1 min read

Choosing to make yourself a persona non grata in one of America’s finest food cities is certainly a choice, but we’re guessing that wasn’t on Mike Evans’ mind when he instigated another brawl in Week 2’s game between the New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The all-time leading receiver in Tampa Bay’s record books has been banned for life from the New Orleans-based Blue Oak BBQ restaurant.

Owned by avid Saints fans, Blue Oak BBQ announced Sunday that Evans isn’t allowed within their establishment after his cheap shot on Lattimore started a fight that got them both ejected from the game, and which later resulted in Evans being suspended for Tampa Bay’s next matchup. By Monday morning, a sign formalizing the decision to ban Evans from the premises was posted on their door.

Famous for its fried chicken sandwich, daily specials, and sides (we’d recommend the Brussels sprouts and roasted garlic mac and cheese), the restaurant’s location on North Carrollton Avenue in New Orleans is also a popular sightseeing stop for the reactions to each week’s Saints game shared on their roadside sign. It’s a shame Evans won’t get to try it himself, but there’s no stopping you and yours.
