ROR's Swamp Slammer is the Alumni Grill Burger of the Month

Throughout the month of December, Alumni Grill in Thibodaux will be donating a percentage of sales of the Burger of the Month to Restore or Retreat.  

The Swamp Slammer will feature a beef patty topped with BBQ shrimp and lettuce on a sweet sourdough bun.  

Owner and Chef Minh Le of Alumni Grill transferred to Nicholls State University when the culinary program was in its infancy.  Externships and work took him across the country and to the top restaurants in Baton Rouge and New Orleans.   Le opened his own restaurant, The Alumni Grill, serving burgers, salads, tacos, and barbecue lunch specials.  Through the Burger of the Month program, Le has already donated over $7000 back to his community.

Swing by Alumni today, and try the Swamp Slammer for yourself!!
Thanks for Giving!!
Restore or Retreat's 14th annual fall fund raiser Barnstorming to Save Our Coast was another success, and we are grateful for your support!
