Located in Old Town Slidell, Bruiser's is Slidell's gourmet hot dog joint. It features indoor/outdoor bar, Pet friendly outdoor courtyard and 6 televisions.

They are first time small business owners living the dream.  Kevin grew up in Slidell and Melissa in Mandeville.  He graduated with a Culinary Arts degree from Delgado in New Orleans.  They started this from an idea, to a business plan, then an SBA loan and now a completed restaurant.  The construction process was very difficult because they were "Learning on the Job" but they stayed positive, with plenty of prayers, and never gave up.  Their vision was to bring a little bit of New Orleans to the Northshore with entertainment, fresh homemade food, great atmosphere and awesome people.  So bring the whole family out and get a Hot Dog..."Try them again for the first time" at Bruiser's "Home of the Barduca Dog"
