From the rooter to the tooter… Yam Yam’s Southern Barbeque closed, apparently for good.
You can see a small ‘Closed’ sign in the window on a Saturday afternoon, and everything inside is shuffled around, presumably to be removed:
For all the scoop on why Yam Yam’s closed, see this earlier post. The building shown above was sold on June 30th (selling price: $450,000, ten times the price it sold for in 1996).
An recent Urban Vibe TV interview with Yam Yam’s owner Larry Matthews (conducted inside the purple parlor of the bbq restaurant) where he talks about how Yam Yam’s has been involved in the local community since its opening in 1997 is online, and worth watching.
