Allen & Son BBQ Variant Coming to Five Points

It appears that Jimmy Stubbs from the Pittsboro Allen & Son Barbecue will be opening a store called “Five Points BBQ” in Raleigh. You can follow them on Twitter @5PointsBBQ.

At this point I still don’t know if the restaurant will be in the old Audio Buys building or if it will go into the old Johnson’s Pharmacy spot (at Oberlin and Fairview). Word has been that the people who overhauled the old Audio Buys were hoping the space would be retail, but would upfit the space for a restaurant if that is the only potential suitor they could find.

    I noticed that just recently For Lease signs were taken down in the space at Oberlin and Fairview and renovations begun.

    Between this and Beasley’s Chicken opening today, today may be the best food day in Raleigh history.

    Yeah I’ve noticed. They’ve definitely got Andrea (and others confused) just look at her tweets. She is still looking for clarification. Very odd!
