Steele: “We wanted a place that had a bit of everything.”
CENTRAL, La. (BRPROUD) – This is not an April Fool’s Day joke. A new dining option opened on Liberty Rd. last week.
Steele’s Snack Shack opened on April 1 and with it comes everything from snowballs to stuffed waffles.
So what can you get when you stop at this new spot in the Indian Mound Grocery parking lot.
There are loaded teas, pudding and pepper jack cheese spring rolls, cheese pizzas, stuffed crust pepperoni pizzas, mozzarella sticks, fried pickles, Frito pies, soft pretzels, stuffed waffles and Moreover.
So, who is responsible for opening this new dining venue in Central?
James Steele is the owner of Steele’s Snack Shack and also a deputy in the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office.
When asked why Steele opened Steele’s Snack Shack, the EBRSO deputy said he loved “being with people in the community and this type of business allows me to do that even more than my usual job.“
Steele wanted to provide a food option that didn’t require local residents to go to the center of Central or Zachary.
It didn’t take long to open Steele’s Snack Shack as the location was already an established snowball stand that Steele was able to purchase.
If you want to check out one of the new local food establishments, head to 16935 Liberty Rd., Greenwell Springs, LA.
