Big Wheel Barbeque is an eating establishment that began in the late 90s in the Mississippi River city of New Orleans. It was established by a set of local restauranteur's. The restauranteur's were named Big Wheel because they wanted a name that would evoke the spirit and atmosphere of a barbeque. The first of the concept was a revolving sandwich that would rotate, thus the title. The organization has since grown into an enormous chain of restaurants, hotel's, take out operations, concession stands, and much more throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Each location is designed with the consumer in mind and has become beloved by many for their great food, fun atmosphere, and delicious food.
This wonderful eatery first started out as just a little food stand in the Mardi Gras Mall. Owner Raymond Boucher was tired of this contamination and the grinding traffic so that he designed and invented the Big Wheel. He put the rotating baskets of food on a wooden platform in the mall where people might have a long line of quality eats while enjoying the beautiful weather. The first major Wheel Burger was made in 1996 and was so successful it became a nationwide phenomenon. With each place adding new features and a larger selection of merchandise, customers continued to ask for Big Wheel Burger locations.
The first Big Wheel Restaurant provided salads and French fries, but in addition to supplying food, they added a riding experience to the Big Whee
