Scott's Barbecue (Goldsboro) Sat, 12/13/08 9:56 AM (permalink)
According to this post that appeared in a barbecue forum I frequent, Scott's Barbecue in Goldsboro NC has closed. The hope is that it's temporary and that the restaurant will be able to reopen before long.

    Hope it works out for them. In the meantime MetroplexJim better order a few cases!

      Interesting.

      I seem to recall hearing that the restaurant had closed several years ago and, since then, they were just in the sauce business.

        You are right. It has been closed for a while.

          Dearfolk,
             That's sad news, but I suspect that their sauce business overwhelmed their time.
             Hey, when you make the best, you deserve to be busy. Theirs is THE BEST vinegar-based sauce I've EVER found ; Shealy's in Batesburg/Leesville runs it a distant second, even as good as it is.
             If I ever make it to Goldsboro (and I just might: my friend Julie is brewing at Huske Hardware, a brewpub in nearby Fayetteville), I'll drive along North William Street and see if I can find the place. If it's open, I'll stop in and tell them about my and everyone else's posts about their sauce. -- Then I'll go eat at Wilber's (unless they're somehow cooking at Scott's... in such event, goldurn it, I'll just eat twice!).
             Now let me see if I can add a smiley face.
                Self-Congratulatorially, Ort. Carlton in (no face can describe) Athens, Georgia.
