Actually I went to Mt Airy without going to Snappy Lunch and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Nice place!!!
Gee, if Snappy Lunch closes..why would anybody go to Mt. Airy.
I just got off the phone with a couple people from Snappy Lunch (sorry, I didn’t get a name or title, but the first one said she would get the manager), who knew nothing about it closing. She did tell me that they were closed for five weeks of remodeling, but they are back open now.
I also took the opportunity to ask about Mr. Dowell. She told me he still comes in six days a week to help out and talk to customers, but he no longer works the grill, just like the newspaper article said. I’m just glad to hear he can still be involved in some capacity.
Cliff, I think the info was from here:
Although I could have sworn I read about it more recently… however a quick search revealed nuthin’.
[edit: Oops but you posted in that thread so you knew that…]
If a BBQ tours get put together I’ll be there. It is about a 6 hour drive for me but that is completely do-able.
I missed this…..Snappy Lunch is about to close? Can you give us some more info on this? Any idea when?
Well, if you guys need a sherpa/guide thru NC BBQ, I live 14 miles from Lexington and have grown up all thru NC and all thru the BBQ joints relatively unknown to RoadFood, Eastern NC and Western NC.
Hey, Starks, if you want to see real non-commercial BBQ, let’s put something together…..altho if you just want NC BBQ, you’re gonna have missed a whole lot of RoadFood here……
Once again, altho not BBQ, Snappy Lunch in Mt Airy is just a couple of months away from being gone……
