Mike Evans Gets Banned From New Orleans Barbecue Restaurant For Life

Mike Evans needs to go somewhere else if he wants BBQ.

Choosing to make yourself a banned guy in a city where the food is absolutely wonderful was probably not part of the plan for Bucs Receiver Mike Evans. We’re guessing BBQ food wasn’t on Mike Evans’ mind when he got involved in another brawl in Week 2’s game between the New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The all-time leading receiver in Tampa Bay’s record books has been banned for life from the New Orleans-based Blue Oak BBQ restaurant.

Blue Oak BBQ announced Sunday that Evans isn’t allowed within their establishment after his cheap shot on Lattimore started a fight that got them both ejected from the game, and which later resulted in Evans being suspended for Tampa Bay’s next matchup. By Monday morning, a sign formalizing the decision to ban Evans from the premises was posted on their door.

See the sign below:

The BBQ restaurant’s location in New Orleans is also a popular sightseeing stop for the reactions to each week’s Saints game shared on their roadside sign.

Famous for its fried chicken sandwich, daily specials, and sides, Blue Oak is definitely a place where watching football is a big part of the experience.

It’s a shame Evans won’t get to try it himself, but I’m guessing he’ll end up on the sign eventually.
