UPDATE, 8/5/12 10:45 a.m.: Fox Bros. posted an announcement on its Facebook page this morning with the news that it will begin offering full service again today but will have limited indoor seating at this point.
UPDATE, 8/3/12 6:30 p.m.: Fox Bros. will reopen for to-go orders only. In an online update, owners said, “You are welcome to sit down outside and enjoy it, but we won’t be offering full service just yet!” The restaurant is working on permitting issues to proceed with reconstruction.
UPDATE, 8/3/12 1:15 p.m.: Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q posted a statement on its website with an update indicated that the restaurant’s “main structure, kitchen and smoke house are still very much intact.” Fox Bros. will be serving its pulled pork today at Big Tex Decatur (308 W. Ponce de Leon Ave, Decatur).
PREVIOUSLY: If you have a hankering for a little ‘cue today, you won’t be having it at Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q. The restaurant, located in Candler Park, will be closed temporarily because of damage from a fallen tree.
Keeping a positive outlook, Fox Bros. posted photos of the tree on its Facebook page, saying, “Won’t stop us…” Later posts indicated that the tree was 70 inches in diameter and “took out two vans, one car and two dining rooms.” It seems that no one was hurt during the incident.
The restaurant will be closed today. On Facebook, Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q thanked Community Q for stepping in to fill its scheduled catering orders. Owners hope to reopen this weekend, but will know more after an early-morning appointment with an architect and contractor.
Fans offered support and sympathy after the announcement, with some even offering to help with clean-up efforts.
We will update this story as information about reopening plans becomes available.
