You can't beat...
June 2, 2003 4:55 AM   Subscribe

When travelling in New Orleans, perhaps you've seen a billboard or a bumper sticker with the phrase "You can't beat Wagner's Meat". Wagner's Meat, a small convenience chain with its most prominent gas station/meat market on South Claiborne and MLK, isn't just known for their bumperstickers, but also for their Chicken Box fast food joints (Tastes like Mama's!) and their "inspirational" marquee boards in front of every store. Unfortunately, the link to have the quotes emailed to you on a regular basis is broken, but if you go to the front page of Wagner's Meat, there's a new one on the bottom of the page each time...

there is a booth at the local saturday market here with the slogan:

"you can beat my meat, but you can't lick my sauce"

very classy

Of course there are the myriad Bar-B-Que places with the motto "Put Some South in Your Mouth"

Wagners, June '99. Their crawfish ain't bad, either.

I don't know about Wagners, but I could bury my face in some muffulettas any god damn day.

I can still remember the day that Willie's Meats changed its name to Billy's Meat, mostly for the laughing when I found that we had announced it on Page 1 (I worked at the local afternoon daily newspaper). Damn good food, though.

Smokin' Moe's in Winter Park Colorado. Slogan: You just can't beat Moe's meat.
