More bad news from the barbeconomy. Just a few weeks after Lexington institution John Wayne’s Barbecue rode into the sunset, we learn that Short Sugar’s has closed their downtown Reidsville location. Short Sugar’s has been in business since way back in 1949 on the outskirts of Reidsville and had operated a second, downtown location since ’58. It’s always sad to see an old time BBQ restaurant close, and in this case doubly sad to lose a restaurant in the heart of a downtown. The good news is that Short Sugar’s original Scales Street location is still going strong.
