This is justice in the food world! Sadly the Bar-B-Q Shak in Etowah, NC went from being the best there was in BBQ to absolutely dreadful. When we arrived here eight years ago there were always long lines out the door. A succession of owners in recent years resulted in poor food, lousy service and small portions - maybe the latter was a blessing.
A few days ago I noticed their sign was missing and figured it blew down in the strong winds we had recently. Today, when I drove by there was a temporary sign proclaiming "DJ's Roadhouse coming soon".
No one seems to know anything more about the new place except the people in the Post Office across the road said the new owner came in yesterday and rented a PO Box.
Here's hoping a good eating establishment can once again serve Etowah and environs! I'll try to keep the Chowhounds informed of developments.
