Popular food truck that serves southern macs, melts to open restaurant in Baton Rouge

BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — A popular food truck that has been a staple in Tigerland that serves its award-winning southern mac and melts is opening a new restaurant in Baton Rouge.

The Big Cheezy will be opening a permanent restaurant that will be located on LSU’s campus.

“We have been looking for a location for over a year,” said Blaize Romancik, owner/operator of The Big Cheezy. “We wanted a spot around LSU’s campus, but not just any location, one that matches our company’s vibe. Our concept is not a strip mall kind of concept.”

Their menu also includes their signature melts, mac and cheez selections, mac and cheez sandwiches, and a selection of French fries.

According to Romancik, the restaurant’s expected opening date will be in early to mid-March.

“We need a location with character, said Romancik. “More importantly our business has been built around LSU and we wanted to thank all of our loyal customers with a location on LSU’s campus.”
