Wait for a train shot while you eat your New Yorker Dog. Locally owned and great location near NOLA. Enjoy all Slidell has to offer like local brewery beers and shots.

The best hot dogs in Slidell period. However, no vegan options and they usually run out of seafood too. So beef it is cause the best hot dogs are made with beef😀

Bruiser's is the brainchild of Kevin Barduca and Melissa McCoy, as an homage and twist on the classic 50's American diner. Featuring hot dogs and a patriotic theme, Bruiser's is as American as apple pie and baseball. Strategically placed on the corner of Front St & Fremaux Ave, Bruiser's is right in the middle of everything that Slidell has to offer. Officially located in Olde Town Slidell, Bruiser's is poised to participate in: all the Olde Town Street Fairs; we have prime placement on the Slidell Mardi Gras parade route; and we're located directly across the street from Heritage Park. Bruiser's is THE PLACE TO BE for all of Slidell's important cultural and holiday events. Bruiser's features an outdoor beer garden, and Slidell's longest (at 97 feet!) indoor/outdoor bar, perfect for large gatherings and catching the game on one of our six large screen TVs. Come out and have fun at Slidell's newest hangout spot! Future members of the East St Tammany Chamber of Commerce, Kevin and Melissa have been perfecting and honing their hot dog skills and recipes every week at the Camellia City Market since June of 2013. As new business owners they both want to get involved in as many local organizations and groups as they can.
