What's up with Redbones lately?

This isn't meant to be a "dump on Redbones BBQ" thread; I know that some people loathe the place for whatever reason. I've always had a good time there and enjoy their food & atmosphere.

But lately things have been sort of… off. They took several really popular "all day specials" off the menu (and made them way more expensive by putting them on the regular menu), they took a very popular style of BBQ pork rib off the menu entirely, their beer prices have gone up dramatically, and now they're closing at around 11pm on Sundays and Mondays. And while their standard food items haven't changed, the last time I got their "combo" (a bargain plate of whatever BBQ they have on hand), it was all steamed and mushy with zero crust or smoke -- and the menu now says that it's "cooked up Yankee style".

Anyone know what's up over there? Are they cutting corners to prepare for their second location?
