Big Cat Ernie Ladd’s “Throwdown” BBQ Restaurant in New Orleans

The Big Cat, Ernie Ladd died 14 years ago today. He was one of the greatest athletes to ever come out of Louisiana and his passing left a 6′9″ hole in the fabric of our state.

After his career in the NFL and professional wrestling was over he opened Big Cat Ernie Ladd’s “Throwdown” BBQ Restaurant in New Orleans on Broad Street.

Did you eat there?

I’m writing a feature on the great man and will publish it in the coming weeks.

RIP Mr Ladd.
