Hell has frozen over at last.
The news out of Burlington is that the owners of Hursey’s Barbecue are opening a location at Holly Hill Mall in the home of an old Chik-ail-A. Given that barbecue really is fast food (well, aside from the hours of cooking time), it makes a lot of sense to sell it in a mall. And since Hursey’s cooks their ‘cue over wood at their main location (pictured below) you don’t have to worry too much about how a mall will impact their cooking. But it still feels more than a bit odd to think of being able to order BBQ inside a shopping mall.
This is the first time I have heard of a NC BBQ joint opening up shop inside a mall. Anyone else know otherwise?
