Watson BBQ Favorite Targeted by Governor

A single mom who recently purchased Firehouse BBQ in Watson is in a David-vs.-Goliath battle with Gov. John Bel Edwards, who wants her restaurant closed. Edwards wants her to forcibly eject customers who don’t mask.

However, Danielle Bunch says she has no intention to close her popular restaurant. Ms. Bunch attracted the governor’s attention when she posted on Facebook saying her employees could not comply with the governor’s mask order for health reasons and there was no point in customers wearing masks if the employees didn’t.

Danielle said she meets all health code requirements and socially distances and that the governor’s mask order is completely illegal and unconstitutional. Attorney General Jeff Landry agrees!  See pages 10-11.

A hearing is set before Judge Brian Abels on Sept. 1.  AG Landry has filed an amicus brief supporting Danielle Bunch and Firehouse BBQ. For more, click on the QR codes below.
