True BBQ, a local favorite barbecue restaurant at 1237 D Ave., has reopened as of Friday, June 24, as the owner of the business announced in a video on Facebook Live. The restaurant, also known for its pulled pork, ribs, hash and various sauces, including the Sexy Lady tomato-based sauce, had been closed since October 2021 as ownership dealt with a death in the family and other matters.

“We will be opening back up for business in True BBQ land,” Zanders said.

Zanders said that the restaurant will only be open on Fridays and Saturdays. The restaurant will also be takeout-only for the time being, although dine-in could return in the future.

“Like I tell folks, there’s an excuse for barbecue, there’s good barbecue, there’s great barbecue and then there’s True BBQ,” he said in the recent Facebook video
