FAT Brands announced the openings of its first Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express location in the Greater New Orleans area. The new Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express Pearl River restaurant, located in the I-59 Pilot Travel Center north of New Orleans, will serve passersby its famous, all-American fare, including custom-built burgers, award-winning wings, Fat Fries, and hand-scooped milkshakes.

“With non-traditional growth a key priority across FAT Brands as a whole in 2024, we couldn’t be more pleased to continue the successful expansion of Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express in travel centers,” says Jake Berchtold, COO of FAT Brands’ Fast Casual Division. “Fatburger’s brand identity is fun and light-hearted which aligns well with the vibrant nature of New Orleans. Whether you are a local or a traveler, we promise to roll out a good time for you at our Pearl River location.”

Ever since the first Fatburger opened in Los Angeles over 70 years ago, the chain has been known for its delicious, grilled-to-perfection and cooked to order burgers. Founder Lovie Yancey believed that a big burger with everything on it is a meal in itself. At Fatburger, “everything” is not just the usual lettuce, tomato, onion, mayo, mustard, pickles and relish. Burgers can be customized with toppings including bacon, eggs, chili and onion rings. In addition to its famous burgers, the Fatburger menu also includes Fat and Skinny Fries, sweet potato fries, scratch-made onion rings, turkeyburgers, hand-breaded crispy chicken sandwiches, and hand-scooped milkshakes made from 100% real ice cream.

A perfect complement to Fatburger, Buffalo’s Express menu includes delicious bone-in and boneless chicken wings accompanied by a range of original sauces. All of Buffalo’s Express’ wings are accompanied by celery, carrots, and blue cheese, ranch or honey mustard dressing.

The Pearl River Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express is located at 65583 Pump Slough Road, Pearl River, LA, and is open 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. daily.
