Does anyone know what happened to Farmer Brown's?

The thread below about Buffalo Wings made me think about how one of the best wings to be had was sold at this little take out shack close to Cabrini Green (I have to admit that the little asian girl that I am was more than a little frightened as I stood in line) on Clybourne (near the Dominick's). The people who worked there were in a kitchen encased in bullet proof glass and they took your order through intercom and slid your food through a metal slot to you! And there were security cameras taping all the customers. They made a few different soul food dishes but their wings were to die for. It was the sauce. They even gave you a piece of white (I think wonder) bread to soak up the drippings with... and I frequently heard customers asking them to "double dip" their order.

There was always a long line of people standing around waiting. Then overnight the place was closed (very suspicious). I've heard rumors that they've opened up farther south. Can anyone confirm this?
