My New Orleans: Bud’s Broiler, City Park


Skip Bolen, Bud’s Broiler, 2004.

They say that the famous sauce at Bud’s Broiler is some simple ratio of cane syrup and Heinz chili sauce. From what I remember, it sounded plausible, but who knows, really? The original Bud’s Broiler — and the only location that I have ever visited — opened in 1952 on City Park Avenue. I used to stop here after my day shifts at K-Paul’s. Coincidentally, this photo was taken right about that time, in 2004. Stare at this picture and imagine the potent smell of a charcoal grill in the air. Ah, that’s more like it.
