Husband-and-wife Food Networkpeople Pat and Gina Neely announced on Facebook today that they will be shuttering their Memphis, TN Neely's Bar-B-Que outposts for good. According to the Commercial Appeal, the Neelys' closed the two restaurants "indefinitely" for renovations last October and now, boom they're done.
The unofficial/official Nashville location of Neely's Bar-B-Que — which is run by Pat's brother, Tony Neely — closed back in April after the restaurant's lease expired. Tony Neely tells Eater that he's working on getting new lease within the next 30 days; he aims to reopen by Thanksgiving.
This means the couple's New York City outpost, Neely's Barbecue Parlor, is the only Neely's location left. The restaurant was Deathwatched back in August 2011 by Eater NY, but it looks like it's still hanging on.
