Some more information came out about the death of Travis Hocutt. I had been thinking that it most likely was a robbery, but that wasn’t the case.
Looks like the restaurant is going to stay open for now.
That makes two of us. Make sure you get there early. Travis Hocutt told me that once they run out of ‘que, they close and that is happening fairly often.
URGENT PLEASE READ
On the local news tonight there is a story regarding Travis from Hocutts…he was beaten and found in the street andi s in the hospital and no news on his condition. I have tried copy and pasting the story here but can not seem to get it to go through so here is where you can find the story wtrf (dot) com the headline is wheeling business man beaten…I got it to work, I will leave the link for anyone who wants to check it out themself.

This is absolutly awful…my husband and I have met Travis and spoke with him many times when we would visit his restaruant. He is such a kind, gentle, funny man. I pray that the police catch who did this to him. Please everyone pray for him and his family. Thanks. I will update with information as it becomes available.
I, for one, am eagerly awaiting your report.

Good news. Hocutts is open again, but this time its located right on main street in Wheeling WV. My wife and I are taking her vehicle down to get tires today and we’re going to stop. I’ll report back.
Oh my God. How horrifying!. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
What a shock. Words fail just how sad and angry I am right now.
I am very sorry to hear this terrible news. I enjoyed my meals at Holcutt’s and was looking forward to eating his Que again in November. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
This is sad. My brother and best friend wanted to go down sometime next week. What a bummer.
Unfortunately, it was reported a few weeks ago here on Roadfood that Hocutt’s had closed. Here is the link to the other thread.
Unbelievable. I’m just at a loss for words.
God bless his family and i’ll keep them in my prayers.
I made the trip to Hocutt’s this weekend from Pittsburgh, and Hocutt’s was not there any more. [:(] The building seems to host an indoor yard sale. Anyone know what happened?
Next time you go down BB, shoot me that email. If I dont have to work, i’ll definatly be there. I’m heading over Friday again. [:I]
