A barbecue restaurant has taken over the space formerly occupied by Doggy Dogg in downtown Decatur.

BBQ Cafe opened in mid-August at 310 East Howard Ave., Decaturish first reported.

Owners Lewis Johnson, John Peeples and Lloyd Solomon’s goal is “not to create an Atlanta-style barbecue; but rather, to give these simple, consistent recipes with deep Magnolia State roots a Peach State address,” according to the restaurant’s website.
