Unfortunately, I never made it over to Byron to check out Bob's Smoke Stack Ribs, but several of my friends ate there and raved about the portion sizes and fair prices. Sadly, the BBQ joint will be closing this weekend.

This message was posted to the restaurant's Facebook page:

"It comes with a heavy heart to announce our restaurant will be closing for good after Saturday. Unexpected medical issues within our family have caused us to make some big changes. We've been honored to serve all of you and we consider you all our extended family. While this hurts, know that we can still make you the best BBQ in town. You can still call us for catering and sauce. All previous orders will be honored. Let's go out with a bang Friday night (no lunch) and all day Saturday and come eat and say goodbye. Thank you for all your support, love and prayers."

This announcement comes on the heels of news of yet another Rochester store closing. Just yesterday we found out that ApplianceSmart in Crossroads Center will also be closing this week.
