Popular Roswell barbecue spot Meating Street closes

A Roswell barbecue restaurant closed over the weekend less than a year after it opened, blaming parking as one of the main reasons for the closure.

Meating Street BBQ owners Brian and Joanna Keenan sent a letter to customers last week addressing the situation, ScoopOTP first reported:

On Saturday, December 15th, Meating Street BBQ will be serving its final lunch at 1294 Alpharetta St. in Roswell. We will be open from 11am until Sold Out. All beer $2 all day until gone.

We are so extremely grateful for the support you, our customers, have shown us, as well as the encouragement of the entire Roswell Community. We hope you will join us Saturday to celebrate all that was, and what will be.

Brian Keenan told ScoopOTP that parking around the restaurant was a major issue and that “we’ve never recovered from the sales lost to disappointed customers who couldn’t park after careful plans to visit.”

He added that he’s looking into relocating to another space. The restaurant started as a pop-up before opening a brick-and-mortar location earlier this year.
